THE REAL IMPACT OF THE PROPERTY PRACTITIONERS BILL

Richard Stevens paints a bleak picture about the potential impact of the Property Professional Bill on his small real estate agency

We are a small, black real estate agency and have been operating our business, sheridaproperties, since October 2011. My wife, Sherida, has been an estate agent since 2003, and has obtained a Fidelity Fund Certificate every year since. I am a full status estate agent (Professional Practitioner in Real Estate) and my wife is the Principal Estate Agent (Master Practitioner in Real Estate).

Hi Laurette and Jan,

Thank you for your response. We are a small black real estate agency and have been operating since October 2011.  Before this, my wife has been an estate agent since 2003, and has obtained a FFC every year since.  I am a full status estate agent (Professional Practitioner in Real Estate)  and my wife is the Principal Estate Agent (Master Practitioner in Real Estate).  We have consistently aimed to comply with legislative and professional development requirements in our industry, such as the Estate Agency Affairs Acct, the NCA, FICA, SARS and other compliance requirements. We wholeheartedly support the professionalization of the industry and reasonable compliance measures by a regulatory authority, such as the EAAB to regulate the conduct of estate agents for the benefit of consumers.

Good morning Adrianne and Fiona

I trust you are both well amidst  working probably very hard at the present time, as I am sure there have to be many more agents having difficulty solving various problems with the EAAB.

Adrianne, I  thought it important just to advise you –  for the record  –  you were the only person that responded to my email sent on 30 October requesting feedback from the EAAB on the progress of the documentation I had submitted end September, to Mr Shokane, on his request. No response “what so ever” from anybody from the EAAB has been received.

In my humble opinion this fact  has to be addressed at the highest level – the severe lack of communication and response from the EAAB.

Thank you for your efforts and hard work to resolve the problems.

I am looking forward to a response at your convenience.

Kind regards
