Trading Standards: The Estate Agents Regulator
The National Trading Standards Estate Agency Team of Powys County Council "NTSEAT" is the UK’s regulator under the Estate Agents Act 1979, making sure that estate agents act in the best interests of their clients, and that both buyers and sellers are treated honestly, fairly and promptly.

Redress: Handling Complaints
Estate and Letting Agents must register with an approved redress scheme, so that consumers have access to a free, independent review of any complaint. There are currently three schemes approved by the NTSEAT: Ombudsman Services Property, The Property Ombudsman and The Property Redress Scheme.
Redress: Scheme Criteria
The three redress schemes must demonstrate to NTSEAT that they are following the rules (Criteria) which were first set up by the Office of Fair Trading. You can download the criteria here. As part of this process, Referenceline is working with NTSEAT and the three schemes to carry out a survey of all agents and all consumers with complaints in 2015. The results of this survey will be shown here. We will publish more information shortly.
