The Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) was established in 1976 in terms of the Estate Agency Affairs Act 112 of 1976 (‘the Act”), with the mandate to regulate and control certain activities of estate agents in the public interest.

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. A Fidelity Fund Certificate, which is to be renewed each year is issued as evidence of such registration and confirmation that such person is legally entitled to carry out the activities of an estate agent.

The Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB), which has been reporting to the Minister of Trade and industry since 1976, was transferred to the Department of Human Settlements on 17 May 2012 by Proclamation of the President of the Republic of South Africa.

ESTATE AGENTS ARE REMINDED TIMEOUSLY TO REGISTER FOR CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD) IN 2017

The EAAB wishes to remind estate agents that all persons holding a valid fidelity fund certificate, in the capacity of either principal or non-principal estate agent but excluding intern estate agents, must register for CPD purposes in 2017. Intern estate agents will need to register for CPD purposes in the calendar year immediately following the year in which they gain full status as an estate agent (that is to say, once the fidelity fund certificate is no longer endorsed “Intern”).

Participants who have not accrued the required number of verifiable and non-verifiable CPD points for any previous CPD years will also be able, by using the EAAB’s ‘catch-up’ programme, to obtain the outstanding CPD points that they may still require.

Full details in respect of CPD registration for 2017 and the ‘catch-up’ programme, as well as of the CPD programme for 2017, are contained in a communique placed by the EAAB on its website and which may be accessed by clicking on the following link: .

Estate agents are respectfully requested to ensure that they acquaint themselves with the details for CPD registration in 2017, by consulting the communique - and especially the important programme timelines, as soon as possible. Doing so will ensure that they remain compliant in this respect. Find the notification below:
