Hefty fines for real estate agents who don’t divulge inspection reports

  • Real estate agents face fines of up to $4400 if they don’t reveal details of property inspection reports conducted on houses and units they are selling, under new regulations due to come into force from  August.

And, in a huge boost to property’s so-called “collaborative economy”,  agents when asked must tell potential purchasers whether the report was commissioned by the vendor or a prospective buyer.
