§ 25. Mr. Illsley
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he proposes to introduce regulations in respect of misrepresentation by estate agents.554W
§ Mr. Leigh
Misrepresentation about offers received or prospective purchasers was made an undesirable practice by an order that came into effect last July under section 3 of the Estate Agents Act 1989.
My Department is currently reviewing the outcome of consultation on a proposed order under the Property Misdescriptions Act 1991. The order would specify those aspects of property in respect of which misdescription would be an offence.
