NAEA, ARLA and NAVA ‘rebrand’ as Propertymark

first_imgThe National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA), Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers (NAVA) have jointly relaunched themselves as Propertymark in a move designed to raise awareness about standards within the industry.All three organisations have changed their names and added Propertymark to their logos as of today. A new website is live at: www.propertymark.co.uk.Agents who qualify to be in the scheme and display the Propertymark Protected logo in their branch window must sign up to a range of regulatory, financial and insurance standards, the three organisations say.This will include participation in a branded client money protection scheme, having properly and regularly trained staff regularly updated on legislative change and best practice, adhering to a code of practice, submitting independently audited accounts each year, being a member of a redress scheme and holding professional indemnity insurance.At present customers don’t know where to go for advice or can’t be sure if they are dealing with a professional.  We are changing this.”Agents in most areas of the UK are already Propertymark Protected approved including in London Winkworth, Bairstowe Eves, Pedder, Gales, Cooper Giles, James Alexander, Galloways, Beresford International, Douglas & Gordon and Portico.“Having a home is the most important issue for consumers and our members are there to protect and guide people with their property transactions,” said ARLA’s David Cox (pictured, left) and the NAEA’s Mark Hayward (right) in a joint statement.“At present customers don’t know where to go for advice or can’t be sure if they are dealing with a professional.  We are changing this. We will reach out to customers directly so they recognise Propertymark and understand that by using a Propertymark Protected agent they and their money are safe.“Propertymark is a stamp of approval for consumers when they seek professional property expertise in buying, selling, renting, leasing, or valuing a property. It stands for protection for the consumer, and offers the highest standards and qualifications among property professionals.“Propertymark Protected agents have opted for regulation in an unregulated sector, and provide reassurance for consumers as well as protection against rogue operators.”There is a website where consumers can search for companies who are part of the Propertymark Protected scheme, as well as a separate site for staff and companies wanting to find out more about its qualifications for property professionals. Called Propertymark Qualifcations, it will be the new trading name of what used to be the NFoPP Awarding Body.nfopp NAEA propertymark ARLA February 9, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Liverpool look for Man City favours after derby deadlock

first_img However, if City beat the Clarets and Chelsea on Thursday, Liverpool’s next chance will come when they travel to their closest challengers on July 2. “Both teams showed they understand it is a derby even without fans,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. “Intense, physical, all players were all in.” The visitors began a derby like no other in the unfamiliar surroundings of a Portakabin in the Goodison Park car park before making their entrance from the opposite end of the ground to their hosts as Everton’s tight tunnel leaves little room for social distancing. “Everyone didn’t know really what to expect,” said Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk. “It was just good to be back out there.” – ‘Bizarre’ atmosphere – As with all matches since the Premier League’s restart, players and officials took a knee prior to kick-off, but Liverpool’s Sadio Mane was caught unaware as he made a brief dash down the wing before returning to join his teammates.Another consistent feature during the first full weekend of Premier League action since March was a slow start as both sides adjusted to the new surroundings of empty stands.“It was strange,” said Calvert-Lewin. “Playing with no fans it was a little bit bizarre with a game of this magnitude. Normally the place is bouncing so it was hard to get used to at first.”Klopp left Mohamed Salah on the bench for the full 90 minutes due to a minor injury problem.Without the Egyptian and Andy Robertson’s positive runs from left-back, Liverpool lacked their usual dynamism as they struggled to break the hosts down.“We didn’t have enough chances for the possession we had,” added Klopp. “We have to be more clear in the right moment.”Roberto Firmino dragged the Reds best chance of the game wide in the first half, while Trent Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho tested Jordan Pickford with free-kicks.But the longer the game went on, it was Everton who looked the more likely side to score on the counter-attack.Richarlison fired a warning shot as he blazed over after getting in behind.Calvert-Lewin’s improvised flick then forced Allison into a fine save and Davies’s follow-up effort came back off the post.Liverpool look for Man City favours after derby deadlockRead Also: Video: Klopp ready for Liverpool title pushCalvert-Lewin then headed just wide from the resulting corner and Allison stood tall to deny Richarlison again as Everton scented a first derby victory in 22 attempts.“We had two or three opportunities to score. We were a little bit unlucky,” said Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti.But both had to settle for a point as Liverpool failed to win in the Premier League for only the third time this season.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Liverpool will need favours from Manchester City to clinch a first Premier League title in 30 years this week after being held to a 0-0 draw by Everton in a Merseyside derby without the usual fervour behind closed doors on Sunday. Everton midfielder Tom Davies hits the post Everton came the closest to breaking the deadlock as Tom Davies struck the post and Alisson Becker saved from Dominic Calvert-Lewin to deny the Blues a first derby win in 10 years. Liverpool remain well on course to win the league with a 23-point lead over City at the top of the table. The Reds could clinch the title on home soil against Crystal Palace on Wednesday should Pep Guardiola’s men drop points at home to Burnley on Monday.Advertisement Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin (right) described a Merseyside derby without fans as “bizarre”center_img Promoted Content7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market Value9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo11 Greatest Special Effects Movies Of All Time8 Ways Drones Will Automate Our Future7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The WorldBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeTop 10 Female Disney Villains You’ll Definitely Fall In Love With15 Most Astonishing Staircases In The WorldWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Did You Know There’s A Black Hole In The Milky Way?7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The Universe2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This Year Loading… last_img read more
