The agenda of the National Association for Real Estate Agencies (NAREA) includes a strong focus on pending legislation and proposed amendments. The four pieces of pending legislation will, in one form or another, have an impact on the real estate industry and representatives must comment in order to effect necessary changes. The four pieces of legislation are:
- The National Credit Amendment Act,
- The Housing Amendment Bill,
- The Illegal Eviction and Lawful Occupation of Land Amendment Bill, and
- The Rental Housing Amendment Bill.
Other priorities on NAREA's agenda are a strong membership drive to ensure that NAREA speaks with an authoritative voice, and on-going consultation and co-operation with the Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB).
