Public Register of Estate Agents and Salespersons
What is the purpose of the Public Register of Estate Agents and Salespersons?
Terminology: Under the new Estate Agents Act
The purpose of the register is to enable the public to make an informed decision when choosing a salesperson or estate agent by enabling consumers to:
|Check whether a real estate agent is a licensed estate agent;*|
|Check whether a person is a registered salesperson;*|
|Know whether a real estate agent or salesperson has been disciplined by the Council within the last three years.|
|Know whether any awards have been conferred on a real estate agent or salesperson by the Council|
* Estate Agents are granted licence by CEA and the salespersons of the estate agents are registered. They can perform estate agency work only if they have a valid licence or registration. In the Public Register, the validity period of the licence or registration is shown against the name of the estate agent or salesperson. The initial licence and registration period of 2 and 3 years (from Jan 2011) has been staggered for different estate agents and salespersons. This will better facilitate the industry and CEA administratively in the subsequent renewal for all estate agents and salespersons on a two-yearly basis.
