Time to license all estate agents

I refer to the article, 'License all agents, say experts' (Feb 8).

I have been a licensed property agent since 1992, and am a member of the Institute of Estate Agents (IEA) and operate my own agency. I fully support the move to license all estate agents.

Licensed property agents and IEA members have to adhere to proper conduct and abide by a code of ethics, failing which we will be penalised or even have our licences revoked.

Unlicensed property agents, on the other hand, can easily get away with unethical practices; they can simply quit their agencies and join other agencies.

The time is right for this issue to be looked into - for the good of the industry and the public.
