Consumer and Business Services is working with the Real Estate Institute of South Australia (REISA) to ensure agents in regional areas are complying with their requirements.
Business Services and Consumers Minister Gail Gago said a regional roadshow will begin in August to educate and remind real estate agents about new laws and what they need to do to meet relevant sales and property management legislation.
“Having the right information at hand is essential when managing real estate sales and property management.
“It is crucial that licensed real estate agents fully understand every aspect of property and the law so they can provide the most accurate and relevant advice to consumers.
“We want to help agents – particularly those in regional areas who may not have the chance to regularly attend industry events and training sessions – to receive the latest information about industry regulations,” Ms Gago said.
Targeted workshops will be held in:
• Port Pirie – 10 August 2015
• Port Augusta – 11 August 2015
• Port Lincoln – 13 August 2015
• Mount Gambier – 18 August 2015
• Murray Bridge – 19 August 2015
• Victor Harbor – 20 August 2015
• Clare – 24 August 2015
• Berri – 25 August 2015
• Tanunda – 26 August 2015
• Kangaroo Island – 28 August 2015
The regional roadshow will also be a chance to provide feedback, clarify information and talk with other agents face-to-face about issues they may be experiencing in these areas.
This follows a successful roadshow in 2014 that outlined changes to the Land and Business (Sale and Conveyancing) Act 1994 and the Residential Tenancies Act 1995, which included new laws to strengthen the real estate industry.
“Last year’s road show visited 12 regional areas and every session was sold out, which was a really positive outcome,” Ms Gago said.
