Why Choose Us?
Andrew Granger’s Residential Lettings Department Provides Letting & Management Services For Over 1000 Landlords With Qualified Staff At Our Offices in Market Harborough, Leicester and Loughborough.
Andrew Granger & Co has been a member of the Association of Residential Lettings since 1999. ARLA was formed in 1981 as the professional and regulatory body for lettings agents in the UK. It was recognised that the requirements of the residential lettings market were so detailed and specific that a separate organisation was required to promote standards in this important and growing sector of the property market.
ARLA has over 9,000 individual members throughout the UK and membership is achieved only by agents who demonstrate that they have a thorough knowledge of their profession and that they conduct their business according to current best management practice. In May 2007 ARLA signed a formal agreement that brought the Association under the banner of the National Federation of Property Professionals (NFOPP), along with the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA).
