NAEA supports measures to improve industry

The National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA), the residential sales arm of the National Federation of Property Professionals (NFOPP), is disappointed that first day marketing is not going to be scrapped completely, but welcomes the move by the Minister for Housing and Planning to work with the industry to make HIPs more effective.

Peter Bolton King, Chief Executive, NAEA, comments: “Whilst we are disappointed about the decision on first day marketing we welcome the Minister’s decision to work with property professionals like the NAEA to take another look at the content of HIPs. We have always maintained that in their present state, they are of little use to either seller or buyer and therefore we embrace the opportunity to come up with a package that includes real benefits to the customer and will actually assist the buying and selling process – after all, that was the original intention of this legislation. If this cannot be achieved we continue to maintain that HIPs should be scrapped.

“We are pleased that the Minister recognises the value of work being done by the NAEA, RICS and Law Society to bring about a single set of best practice standards consumers can expect from property professionals. All NAEA professionals adhere to a strict code of conduct and we would like to see these rigorous standards reflected throughout the whole of the property industry.”
