Sarah Dooley, a Chorley-based letting agent who owns Lettings Chorley, has successfully passed an NFoPP Level 3 Technical Award in Residential Letting and Property Management.
This well-respected award is not only a nationally-recognised industry qualification but is also an entry requirement of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), which is the only professional, self-regulating body specialising in raising and maintaining practice standards in the UK private rental sector.
Sarah said: “I decided to start studying toward this qualification as a result of my own personal experience of being a landlord and not receiving the service levels I expected from the letting agents I had used.
“I am thrilled the hard work has paid off and I have secured the Technical Award.
“For me, it is not only a personal achievement but evidence of our professionalism as an agency, showing our clients that they are dealing with someone who is knowledgeable and who they can trust to do a good job.”
Lettings Chorley is among the steadily growing number of agents across the UK who are working with ARLA and the NFoPP Awarding Body to become qualified and raise standards within their field.
Ian Potter, ARLA managing director, said: “I heartily congratulate Sarah on her achievement and am pleased to welcome her to ARLA membership.
“In an industry where standards can vary greatly between member and non-
member agents and agencies, obtaining this Award represents not only Sarah’s dedication to developing as an agent but also her commitment to working to the high industry standards which ARLA seeks to promote.”
