Haigh Farming (Pty) Ltd v E.G Elliot Estate CC (14175/2013) [2015] ZAKZPHC 47           (2 October 2015)

When anyone performs those activities that are included in the Estate Agency Affairs Act’s definition of an “estate agent”, that person must be in possession of a Fidelity Fund certificate to be entitled to receive payment. This judgment illustrates how the court approaches the factual enquiry whether, in the rendering of property consultancy services and “spotting” of properties to be listed for sale, a person is ‘acting’ as an estate agent. The enquiry resulted after an estate agency refused to pay a previously agreed upon remuneration to its consultant, alleging that he acted as an estate agent and hence was not entitled to remuneration in the absence of the required certificate.
