In the conduct of agency practice, an agent can face ethical and professional obligations. These obligations may be moral (personal) or legal (statutory or common law).
To a good extent, these obligations have been collected together and set out in the Code of Conduct for Agents and Sales Representatives, pursuant to s 101 of the Real Estate and Business Agents Act 1978 (‘the Act’), federal consumer protection law (Australian Consumer Law) and state consumer protection law (Fair Trading Act 1987)., the Privacy Act, Equal Opportunity Act 1984, Occupational Health & Safety Act.
The simplest way to protect yourself and your agency from expensive claims of misleading or deceptive conduct, discrimination or breaches of the Privacy Act is to have a thorough understanding of how these laws apply to the practices of your agency.
