In conjunction with managing day-to-day tasks, owners of estate and lettings agencies require to navigate a myriad of legislation and administration that you as a business must comply with.  Having an experienced trusted advisor on your side to guide you through the compliance work required, can assist business owners by freeing up their time and allow you to concentrate on growing the business.

Estate & lettings agents require the handling of ‘client monies’ and it is therefore essential to maintain accurate records that comply with the regulations for dealing with other people’s money.  Where there are a high volume of transactions, mistakes are more likely and the importance of maintaining control over accounts such as Deposits Held, Rent Received and Rent Payable ensures that any transactional errors are picked up and quickly and corrected.
