Push to license SA property managers

Push to license SA property managers

by Steven Cross 2 comments

The Real Estate Institute of South Australia (REISA) has once again called on the state government to enforce licensing on property managers.

The REISA believes that mandatory licensing will ensure that landlords and tenants receive professional and fair treatment when involved in a rental transaction.

CEO of the REISA, Greg Troughton, said it was once again the right climate to address the issue.

“With national licensing for real estate professionals on the agenda, there has been broad agreement that property managers will be licensed to align with other states and territories, but REISA wants licensing introduced sooner rather than later for the benefit of all South Australians.

“Other states and territories have long realised that licensing is essential in this area, and we’re encouraging the government to move the decision forward and bring South Australia into line with our interstate counterparts.

“It has to be remembered that property managers have the responsibility of assisting people in securing shelter, and conflict needs to be handled with respect, whilst still abiding by the law,” Mr Troughton continued.

Mr Troughton claimed that the Institute's position was supported by many in the industry.

“Professional property managers who value quality training and enjoy the challenges of this job strongly support the move to licensing, as it’s key to raising professionalism and valuing the role that property managers play in the community in managing hundreds of thousands of tenancies around the state.”
