    It's important you make your clients aware of any referral fees you are receiving for recommending a service such as conveyancing, legal services or other connected service, so that they can make an informed decision about whether to take up the offer or shop around for a better deal.

    We've invited in two investigators from the National Trading Standards Estate and Lettings Agency Team to discuss queries received regarding sales contracts and particulars. This will include dual fees, misleading adverts and what constitutes material information as well an update on the new Lettings team.

    This is a great opportunity for you to get your queries, questions and any concerns answered.

    There’s no denying that the market is very competitive. Agents are coming up against over-valuing and some areas are turning into a battleground over fees.

    So how can you win the vendor’s trust and ultimately be the agent that sells the property, without compromising on your fee or losing out to an over-valuation?

    In this new webinar we’ll cover the techniques agents are using to help build vital trust between you and your next potential instruction.

    We’ll look at how Rightmove’s free tools can help you to:
    • Win more instructions first time around, without dropping your fee
    • Win secondary instructions you originally lost to an over-valuing agent
    • Make sure that, once you’ve won the instruction, you’re the agent that goes on to sell or let the property
