UPDATE: November 30 2015. 18:28: LKP has been informed via Rylands Associates’ legal representatives that the LKP logo published on the Rylands Associates website has been removed.
A property management agency in Southend in Essex, Rylands Associates, has been using the LKP accreditation logo on its website … only we have never heard of them.
Having been alerted to this issue this afternoon, we have been assured by Rylands Associates that the logo will be taken down immediately.
“This was an error and we are sorry about it,” said Russell O’Connor, of Rylands Associates.
No explanation was given why LKP’s logo had been used in this unauthorised and misleading manner.
In addition to LKP, Rylands Associates publishes the logos of RICS, Ombudsman Services Property, IRPM, Help for Heroes, the FSB and Rightmove.
