Do you feel that property spruikers should be put on notice?

    I just saw this on the ABC website as well and was going to post about it.
    Good that they're creating awareness, I really dislike those spruikers.

    They mention getting advice from 'licenced professionals' however there is no licensing requirement for property advice. At the moment anyone can just start advising on property or running seminars as long as they are not giving tax or legal advice or trying to sell properties.

    Agree no licensing, however Ben Kingsley has developed a body called 'PIPA' which you can get an accreditation from. Trying to raise the standard of advice given.

    I am not sure if Ben developed it but he is the chair. However there is no requirement to join such an organisation (maybe there should be). The trouble is the spruikers just avoid these sorts of organisation.
