Sanjeev Patel, managing director of LuxuryDigs, a London based letting agent has successfully passed the NFoPP Level 3 Award in Residential Letting and Property Management. This well-respected Award is not only a nationally-recognised industry qualification but is also accepted for membership of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) which is a professional, self-regulating body specialising in raising and maintaining practice standards in the UK Private Rental Sector (PRS).

Sanjeev Patel established LuxuryDigs several years ago to provide high-quality PRS housing to students & professionals who want a decent home and don’t want hassles from landlords that don’t look after their properties.

Sanjeev Patel said “I decided to start studying toward this Level 3 qualification to ensure our agency knows the best industry standards and practices in the fast-growing PRS sector, so we can better assist both our landlords and tenants.  For me, it is not only a personal achievement but evidence of 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. We strongly believe that London landlords and tenants will vote with their feet in support of an agency that is staffed by hard-working property professionals of intelligence and integrity.”

LuxuryDigs is amongst the steadily growing number of agents across the UK who are working ARLA and the NFoPP Awarding Body to become qualified and raise standards within their field.

David Cox, ARLA Managing Director, states: “I heartily congratulate Sanjeev Patel on his achievement and hope to welcome him to full ARLA membership in the near future.  In an industry where standards can vary greatly between members and non-member agents & agencies, obtaining this Level 3 Technical Award represents not only Sanjeev Patel’s dedication to developing as an agent but also his commitment to working to the high industry standards which ARLA seems to promote.  Sanjeev Patel now holds a qualification which is well respected and valid within the Residential Letting sector.”
