  1. 1. The Roles Played By Estate Agents Discussing The Roles Played By Estate Agents An estate agent will cause several aspects of placing someone in a home. It could be that the house is being bought by them, or have chosen to rent for a time, but regardless of the choice was, there is someone to give advice and help sort out problems. By and large, when a sale is involved, estate agents are called upon to help and they'll lead to drawing up the paperwork, and liaising with a solicitor who will ensure that everything is in order. As estate agent must be constantly the opening and close of corporations or upgraded of changes that are happening in your community, as new developments could dramatically change house prices. There's strict regulation surrounding the industry and it's also the responsibility of the Office of Fair Trading to ensure that all agents work in a manner that is honest and transparent. Laws are being upgraded, therefore it is clear that will know the things they're doing. An estate agent must belong to a minumum of one governing body before they must also be members of a redress system and can lawfully ply their trade. As they will be different for a property that is being purchased than one that is being rented, understanding the fees charged could be a minefield. There's plenty of responsibility on the broker as they must not only make sure that they are selling/renting a property that's fit for purpose, but also the one who will reside there's not likely to be an issue for neighbors or the landlord. A survey set up a few years ago showed that estate agents will most likely charge just under 2% of the price of the property. There were concerns at one time the purpose of the professional would diminish with properties appearing for sale online. So that it seems that agents all will be trading for many time to come. One thing that these real estate experts always get criticized for is the way that they describe a property. Everything is made to sound better than it's in order not to offend the seller. It's because of this that the property shouldn't be bought without a viewing and survey.
