Over the past 18 months, in my role as Vice President of the Jersey Estate Agents’ Association (JEAA), I have been involved in assisting with the current National Risk Assessment for Jersey which has involved meetings at the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC) and the attendance at two workshops organised in conjunction with the World Bank, one at the commencement of our work and secondly one at the preliminary conclusion of our work.
The president of the JEAA, Gill Hunt, has also been involved with this work, alongside Simon Buckley and another member of the JEAA. All involved have been the principal person or owner of the relevant business.
This work has involved a considerable amount of time, time that is voluntarily offered. Gill is also involved in her capacity as regional representative of the NAEA Propertymark and has also had National and Regional Meetings relating to UK agency the upcoming Regulation of Property Agents (RoPA).
We have also been involved locally with the Trading Standards Office and the Property Ombudsman (TPO), more on that a little later.
We consider, as an association, that we have a good and constructive relationship with the departments of the Government of Jersey.
