Would you book a holiday without the travel firm supplying it being a member of ABTA, the leading association of travel agents and tour operators which providing expert travel advice, guidance, protection and help in resolving travel complaints?

No, of course not. And that is why we believe you should not put your home in the hands of anyone who is fully regulated.

We fear there may be issues of risk surrounding a lack of knowledge, a lack of protection, possible DIY repair jobs and no recourse to actions if things go wrong

At Rebbeck Brothers we are fully regulated and accredited members of the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA) and we strictly adhere to all regulations, policies and standards laid down by this leading professional body for the industry. Many other firms do not follow this path.

We firmly believe, as does ARMA, that anyone managing property on behalf of leaseholders, as well as all professional managing agents, should be regulated. The Government has been consulting on this issue.

Regulation is the law in Scotland; it should be the same in England and Wales.
