The Property Practitioners Bill (PPB) was gazetted for comment in March 2017, and the industry is holding its breath for the 10 000 new jobs that will likely be created with its official implementation, but prospective home buyers must take heed not to trust unqualified service providers.

These are uncertain and challenging times for the real estate industry, but the non-profit organisation Rebosa is fighting for their interests and finding pragmatic solutions to industry issues such as the urgent need to fast-track transformation says Richard Gray, Rebosa chairman.

As technology improves, so does the level of property scams that do the rounds, and while every precaution seems to be taken, there will be yet another thing that fraudsters find to dupe people out of large sums of money, warns Johnny Henkes of law firm Henkes Nolte-Joubert. 

The Property Practitioners Draft Bill was published for comment on 31 March 2017 and when gazetted into law, will replace the Estate Agency Affairs Act of 1976.

Fine & Country Sub-Saharan Africa, part of the UK’s global luxury property network, announced a pioneering partnership with Unipalm Investment Holdings Ltd at a sunset launch held recently.

The Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) is gratified to announce the successful establishment of a Multi-Stakeholder Group comprising both itself and estate agency sector representative organisations.
