Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on a petition to get RoPA actually implemented. After a bit of effort, it’s now live and ready for you to sign. It says …
“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 practices 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”.
Now we need to get the message out there. So, please tell all the leaseholders you know, good property managers, good letting agents, good estate agents and all the professional property people in your contacts list. They should all want to sign and thus start the process of removing rogues from the scene.
