By 28 September 2019 all employees of a registered land agent who manage residential or commercial properties must have completed specific property management training and be registered as a property manager with Consumer and Business Services (CBS). The lengthy transition period aims to provide property managers enough time to complete their training before registration becomes mandatory on 28 September 2019. CBS will start receiving applications for property manager registrations from 1 February 2019.

These changes only apply to people who are employed by a registered land agent, and not those with a less formal arrangement such as managing a property for a relative.
