Regulation of Property Agents (RoPA)

REGULATION OF PROPERTY AGENTS

In July 2019, the findings made by the Regulation of Property Agents (RoPA) working group were announced. Not only did their report highlight the importance of regulating property agents, but it recommended that they need to be qualified in order to carry out their role.

Level 3 Qualifications would be required for Property Agents, and Level 4 Qualifications would be required for those who are currently, or wish to be, a company director or management agent.

For those currently qualified, it has been suggested that top up modules may be implemented to ensure that agents need not take a qualification all over again. Learners who register with Propertymark Qualifications will be guided through the requirements as RoPA progresses through legislation.

As the market leader and only specialist awarding body for agents in the sector, we will ensure that our Qualifications are up-to-date to fit in with any new syllabus required and offer support, where needed, to those who have qualified in the past or are looking to take their qualification in future.

We believe that this news will lead to higher professional standards in the industry and look forward to preparing agents for licensing, as well as supporting their continued professional development, so that they will excel in their role.
