Petition Regulation of Property Agents - implement working party recommendations in full
Regulation of Property Agents has been requested by industry bodies for many years - and a Government working party investigated and reported - yet nothing has happened since.
Ireland has a working system, which could be copied (why reinvent the wheel). The working group’s recommendations must be put into law now.
Rogue agents too often continue in business unchallenged, which is bad for all. Too many leaseholders and other consumers continue to lose money due to bad practice and/or fraudulent behaviour of rogues. IRPM, RICS, and others are all calling for regulation - there is almost unanimous support for regulation. There is no reason to delay. Legislate now, please.
