When you are looking to buy property anywhere in the country you are almost assured that you will have to deal with an estate agent at one time or another. Strictly speaking an estate agent will be able to arrange the selling, renting, or management of homes, land and other buildings. The term originally referred to a person responsible for managing a landed estate, while those engaged in the buying and selling of homes were "house" agents and those involved in the selling of land were "land" agents. During the 20th century the estate fixture was added and it has stuck ever since, it is believed because it allows the title to sound more impressive.
The 1979 Agents Act and the Property Misdescriptions Act 1991 regulate agents along with the Consumers, Estate Agents and Redress Act of 2007. The Office of Fair Trading is responsible for enforcing these regulations. Many estate agents are members of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the principal body for UK property professionals, dealing with both residential, commercial and agricultural property. Members, known as “Chartered Surveyors”, are elected based on examination and are required to adhere to a code of conduct, which includes regulations about looking after their clients’ money and professional indemnity insurance in case of error or negligence. Since around 2000, online estate agents have provided an alternative to the traditional fee structure, claiming cheaper, fixed fee selling packages. These online estate agents claim to give private property sellers the ability to market their property via the major property portals (the preferred medium used by traditional high street estate agents) for a fraction of the cost of traditional estate agency.
