OEA beginning to flex muscles

Estate agents have no excuse not to join the Ombudsman for Estate Agents scheme

There's no excuse for any residential estate agent in England and Wales not to belong to the Ombudsman for Estate Agents scheme and abide by its Government-approved Code of Practice... That's the view of Bill McClintock, chairman of OEA Ltd., as he unveiled an offer for all agents who have yet to sign up to the independent redress scheme. The Department for Trade and Industry announced at the beginning of March that the OEA had been appointed to provide the statutory redress brought in under the Housing Act 2004 and confirmed by the Home Information Pack (Redress Scheme) Order 2007.

One thought on “OEA beginning to flex muscles

  • They have every excuse.

    The industry is populated by ex convicts and gap-toothed school leavers in topshop suits – so there’s very little honour amongst thieves.

    Why would they possibly want to be regulated?
