Please be very careful when looking to rent a property via Facebook Marketplace. There are a lot of scammers out there who are advertising properties to let which are not actually available. They are using pictures that are already available online in the public domain and creating an advert. They are also finding out the owners name and again creating a fake profile for them, so that when you enquire you end up thinking you are speaking directly to the landlord.
Using an accredited letting agent, such as an ARLA agent means that you are protected as a ARLA Licensed letting agent holds client money in a designated client account and accounts are independently inspected annually. Consumers will receive a professional service from an ARLA Licensed agent but if things go wrong neither tenants nor landlords will be left out of pocket.
Please be careful before handing over your money to anyone who is not an ARLA agent.
