How material information can accelerate sales and reduce legal disputes

Webinar recorded live on

Estate and lettings agents have a legal obligation to include material information on property listings. This enables prospective tenants and buyers to make informed decisions.

Providing material information can reduce wasted time dealing with enquiries and improve transaction times in the sales process. James Munro head of National Trading Standards Estate and Letting Agency Team, outlined the key rules from the regulator’s perspective.

• What material information is and where to get it
• When it needs to be disclosed (and to whom)
• How material information saves time, avoids distress and reduces legal disputes
