Public consultation begins in the North on Real Estate Agents Act
November 13, 2019 6:54 am
The Real Estate Agents Licensing Board has started its public consultations on the review of the Real Estate Agents Act 2006.
Board Chair Abdul Hassan says the real estate sector has changed and developed from what it used to be and it’s only fitting that the law governing the sector is also upgraded.
Hassan says they have gathered the view of the real estate agents and are now going out to the public to get their suggestions on what should be included in the new law.
“What we basically trying to do is obtain the views of the people because generally if you look at the real estate sector, the public are affected because they are involved in the buying and selling of the properties. Through their experience they know the problems that they have faced when selling or buying their properties. So, we want to rectify the problem that’s being faced by the public.”
Yesterday the Board was in Savusavu and Labasa to hear and receive submissions from the public.
Hassan says although there was low turnout, they are pleased with the submissions made.
They will be holding consultations in the West next week
