Our Professional Memberships
Drewery Property Consultants operate with the utmost integrity and we are credited by the leading professional and government regulators in the property market. When choosing an estate agent to work with we recommend that you look out for the following logos to ensure that you are talking to reputable companies:
Every year, unlicensed agents cause Britain’s homebuyers and seller unnecessary stress and hassle – and sometimes loss of money – by giving incorrect or misleading advice or offering poor standards of customer service.
By using a licensed NAEA agent you are guaranteed to be consulting with a qualified and experienced agent who can give you professional up-to-date advice and guidance. It is important that you are dealing with an agent who voluntarily follows the Code of Practice and Rules of Conduct laid down by their professional body, the NAEA. A licensed NAEA agent will have Professional Indemnity Insurance (this protects you, the consumer, from financial losses incurred through negligent or misleading advice) and should something go wrong, you will have a complaint procedure available to you.
The Association of Residential Letting Agents, ARLA, is a professional body that is solely concerned with the self-regulation of letting agents and for nearly 25 years has been actively promoting the highest standards across every aspect of residential lettings and management in the Private Rented Sector.
ARLA is viewed by government, consumer groups, academia, think tanks and the media as the leading voice in the industry. ARLA member firms are seen as being at the forefront of the Private Rented Sector, ready, willing and able to comply with existing and anticipated legislation.
As a member of The Property Ombudsman, we follow the code of practice for both residential sales and lettings. All members of staff are made familiar with the ‘Code of Practice for Residential Estate Agents’ and with a comprehensive internal complaints procedure, the need for the Ombudsman has rarely arisen.
"We were not looking forward to looking for a new flat or the prospect of having to deal with estate agents, but we contacted Drewery about a property in Sidcup and they were very helpful, unfortunately that property had been taken but they called me back a few days later to let me know about another property. We arranged a viewing for the following Saturday and was shown around by David. We liked the property and made an offer to rent the same afternoon. by the Monday afternoon Liz had called back to say the landlady had accepted our offer in principle. The referencing process was very quick and within a week it was all sorted and paper work signed. They made the whole process a lot less stressful then it could have been."
