    Complaint to ARLA

    Since January I have written five times to ARLA complaining about my managing agent. I have yet to receive a single reply. I am sure that someone from ARLA reads this forum and should be grateful if they would reply.

    Although it is disappointing that they haven't replied, ARLA are not a redress scheme. The proper process is to exhaust the agent's complaints process then go to their redress scheme.

      It is my understanding that they are a redress scheme, and, even if they were not, ignoring five letters complaining about one of their member is unacceptable.

      .I have followed the "proper process" (having sent over 30 emails and letters to the MA, and the directors)..

        ARLA are not interested in cutting off the hand that feeds them - I complained to them 10 years to no avail they are a toothless organisation that sell expensive window stickers

          The only possible redress schemes for letting agents are The Property Ombudsman and The Property Redress Scheme. The agent must belong to one of them.

            According to the ARLA website, you should (1) follow the agent's complaint procedure (2) contact the relevant independent redress scheme and if that does not deal satisfactorily with your complaint, you can complain to ARLA as long as the agent is a member. There is a complaint form online.

              Thank you eagle 2, I wonder why ARLA did not inform me thusly.

              I am not seeking redress or compensation, I am seeking a withdrawal/correction of the lies and false information the MA have issued in their newsletter. This appears to be more for ARLA than for an ombudsman.

              They are attempting to impose a private parking scammer on residents.

              So far I have managed to prevent this .

                I can see that from a laymans point of view that is correct, but when you talk/deal with individuals who have attempted suicide it's simply not the case, if this was a genuine cause for concern and the Police forced entry they did it in the belief that his life was in danger, from himself probably....

                Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.

                When I bought a house in 2000 in the Highlands it came with a garage: Which had a car in it. Belonged to a neighbour, who used it to sleep in when he'd been in the pub too late & his wife locked him out. Took me 6 months to sort...

                Hi! Hoping the forum can advise me. We have a lock-up garage in a residential estate that had been let to an individual who ceased to pay monthly rental. Notice to quit was served by our letting agents Countrywide in October, and yet the tenant's goods still remain in situ. Agents have advised...

                The point here is though that the tenant's obligations under the tenancy cannot extend to repairing parts of the property which the landlord is under an obligation to repair.

                Outside the tenancy, anyone, including a tenant, who damages property must meet the cost of repairing the damage....

                Rachel Reeves R4 this am told the interviewer that Labour (when in power) would raise money by taxing those with BTL property much more than at present, she opined it was wrong that “they” were “getting away with it”. No challenge from BBC or fact check as to present tax. You are warned.

                The limited company system has been abused for too long by people trying to save on tax by claiming they are a company. I know loads of people of set themselves up as limted companies and have now been caught by IR35. They have spoiled it for those of us who have proper companies to rub who used to...

                Agreed. Peoples care should not be down to those who work hard, to take from their labours. The levy is a joke and im disappointed in the conservatives for doing it.

                I thought the main issue of taking a tenant on UC is not so much the fact they are receiving benefits, but the fact that its a pain in the proverbial to evict as the council tell them to sot tight until forced out by bailiffs....
