Of course, most sales agents were already members of a scheme, but the law was enforced in order to stamp out an element of rogue operators and improve standards across the whole industry. Redress allows consumers – property sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants –...

Customer satisfaction


Hugely impressed with Tepilo from start to finish. My agent was quick to respond to emails/calls etc and

was super helpful in explaining the service, how it works and what the different packages were. But most of all I really appreciate how accessible the agent was, always making time for me in the event I needed her support with something. Thank you Tepilo.

Jamie Trust

Tepilo have been excellent.

I cannot fault the service I have received from all Tepilo agents, who made so much effort to help with a problem I had with my purchase; it has been resolved and I really appreciate the help. I would without a doubt recommend Tepilo to anyone.

Victoria Donnelly

Tepilo is amazing. The site is easy to navigate, always someone to answer any queries you may have.

Far more prospective buyers get to see your property for sale, ask questions and book viewings than with any high street estate agency. This is definitely the way to go, am very happy and would highly recommend.
