Regulation of letting and managing agents

Draft legislation under consideration

Parliamentary report

A Government amendment to the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill 2012-13, which has almost completed its parliamentary stages, will enable the Government to require agents to sign up to a redress scheme.
