Encouraging New Business Models - Proposal to amend the Estate Agents Act 1979 (BIS) - TSI response - August 2012

TSI response (PDF 241KB). TSI believes that, in contrast to letting agents, the estate agent sector operates well as a result of the regulatory structure which provides confidence and certainty to those operating within it and using it. It would be very disappointing to see this well-functioning sector ruined for honest operators and consumers just because some businesses don't want to abide by the same legislation that their competitors have been quite happy to comply with for years.
