Industry regulation of estate agents overdue

Straits Times Straits Times 25.10.2007

I REFER to the article, ‘Case, property body seek licensing of housing agents” (ST, Sept 26). I fully endorse the positive move as we are behind many developed countries which already have this in practice.

I REFER to the article, ‘Case, property body seek licensing of housing agents’ (ST, Sept 26). I fully support the move towards industry self-regulation of real-estate agents by the Institute of Estate Agents (IEA). It is long overdue. The launch of a ‘practising certificate’ for all its members is a step forward. It is not surprising that the IEA is doing so as, for years, it had sought to regulate estate agents.


THE property boom is offering disadvantaged youth a new lease on life. Under a programme called Project Youth Regeneration, seven young people who are at risk or physically disabled are soon to become real estate agents.
