Property Practitioners Bill
The Property Practitioners Bill was published for public comment on 31 March 2017.
Rebosa is currently consulting with a leading firm of attorneys and will be submitting our commentary by the deadline date of 30 April 2017.
We are inviting all our members to submit their comments to us by no later than Friday 21 April in order for us to collate the responses and include them in the discussions we will be having with our attorney’s, thus providing us with sufficient time to meet the deadline.
For your ease of reference the Bill can be found on Rebosa’s website. During the next few weeks we will also be publishing questions and answers in relation to the bill on our website and you can use this platform to engage with us and further familiarise yourself with the legal nuances contained in the Bill in its current form. Please forward any questions you may have.
As we’ve reiterated the ‘Bill’, if enacted in its present form, will have far reaching consequences on the real estate sector, affecting all estate agents. We therefore, urge you to please read the Bill and send us your comments timeously.
