Chamber Overview - Real Estate and Related Services
The Real Estate and Related Services Chamber consists of a single sub-sector and 8 standard industrial classification codes. Companies and individuals in this sub-sector are involved in a number of fields of real estate services.
In addition, almost all construction businesses effectively have a connection to real estate. Purchasing real estate requires a significant investment and each parcel of land has unique characteristics that has evolved the real estate industry into several distinct fields. Specialists are often called on to evaluate real estate and facilitate transactions.
The EAAB regulates the estate agency profession through ensuring that all persons carrying out the activities of an estate agent as a service to the public are registered with the EAAB. The subsector is also governed by other pieces of legislation such as Consumer protection act, FICA and various others that practitioners need to adhere to.
