Resulting from “Royal-Decree Law 4/2000 on Urgent Measures on the Expansion of the Estate Agencies sector” passed on July 23th, today anybody can open an estate agency and work as a “professional” estate agent without having an official degree nor even minimum studies. This, combined with the growth in the construction sector in recent years, has created a massive proliferation of estate agencies, many of them without any qualifications whatsoever. This situation has led to unprofessional tactics, swindles, fraud and exorbitant commissions.
