NAPSA was launched in 2021 providing sourcing agents with the ability to:
*Access to a bespoke NAPSA Code of Practice developed with TPO.
*Access to a professional platform to advertise a sourcing business.
*Showcase a fully compliant sourcing business set up.
*Have property investors search and find a sourcing business based on area and investment strategy.
Tina Walsh (CEO) NAPSA says “NAPSA has been established to provide sourcing agents across the UK with support and guidance to improve professionalism within the sector and a safer place for property investors to operate. The partnership with The Property Ombudsman only emphasises our determination to aide sourcing agents in setting up and running legal, compliant, and ethical agencies”
Rebecca Marsh (Ombudsman and CEO) stated, “Working with NAPSA to ensure all their members are also TPO members represents a significant statement of intent to help property sourcing agents provide a better service and to ensure those that instruct them have access to advice, guidance and, if necessary, an Ombudsman should things go wrong. We will be working closely with NAPSA as they grow, to help their agents set the bar for other property sourcing agents to follow”
