Trust in us

We are members of the following schemes which give landlords and tenants, sellers and buyers, the peace of mind that your money and assets are in safe hands.
Safe Agent – Rise is fully endorsed by the SAFE AGENT Scheme. We protect landlord and tenant money through a Client Money Protection Scheme. We have to adhere to strict guidelines for managing client money including regular reconciliation and an annual independent audit of all of our client bank accounts.
The National Approved Lettings Scheme (NALS) – Voluntary membership of NALS means that we meet defined standards of customer service, is part of a Client Money Protection Scheme and has a customer complaints procedure offering independent redress. Our business transactions are independently monitored and audited by the NALS scheme. We have been a member of NALS since our inception in 2007.
The Property Ombudsman (TPO) – We have been a member of The Property Ombudsman scheme since 2007 before membership of a redress scheme for letting agents was legislated. TPO is a government approved scheme to provide independent redress in relation to disputes between consumers and property agents.
