Saint Andrews Bureau Ltd is a long standing member of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA) (www.arla.co.uk) which was formed in 1981 as the professional and regulatory body for letting 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.

When a tenancy comes to an end, there is sometimes a disagreement about the return of the deposit. When there is, it can cause much hardship and inconvenience to both the landlord and the tenant.
The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) (www.tds.gb.com) has been introduced to ensure that tenancy deposits are protected and that disputes about their return are resolved quickly, cheaply and fairly.
The Landlord is responsible for the building insurance on the property and, if appropriate, Landlords' contents but this does not cover Tenants contents and may not cover accidental damage.
As a condition of the tenancy, to provide protection for the Tenant and the Landlord, it is a requirement that the Tenant takes out Accidental Damage Insurance.
