    Default Any real estate agents on the hub?

    I have a question. If someone is practicing as a property manager do they have to have a certificate of registration and do they need to be registered with fair trading?

    Hi there lovely - I'm a Property Manager of commercial property but the requirements are the same for Residential. As a minimum, you need to have your Certificate of Registration and be registered with OFT. You'll also need to accumulate your 12 CPD points each year in order to have your registration renewed.

    Yep what pp said - you can go to the office of fair trading and do a license/registration check to see if the person is registered ( big fines if they are not!)

    I don't wish to be a property manager but note that someone I know is not listed on the Fair Trading website as certificated/registered. Just wondered how this can be? Can the person work under someone else's registration/cert?

    If they have completed their registration and it's "in the post" I think they get a 2 week grace period but there is no other excuse , they have to be registered under the licensee of the office they are working for

    you just wouldn't take the risk - all our professional indemnity and other insurances would be invalid if they were not registered - you can make a complaint with fair trading or legally our licenses and certificates have to be displayed in the office , you could go to the office and ask to see it or complain directly to the licensee
