Who We Are
The Jersey Estate Agents’ Association (JEAA) has been established since 1965 and provides support, advice and training to its members. The Association ensures its members follow best practice to safeguard consumers and promote professional and ethical work practices. In January 2018 the Association incorporated membership of NAEA (National Association of Estate Agents) Propertymark and TPOs (the Property Ombudsman scheme) in order to align the local industry with that of the UK’s strict codes of conduct.
The Association runs regular seminars to update its members on legal and regulatory changes affecting the industry. We also work with the industry regulators and legislators to ensure that our members are fully conversant with the changing requirements of the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC) with regard to anti money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) legislation and other industry related legislation.
Where an agent collects rents from tenants and holds client monies on behalf of a landlord, the agent is required to have client money protection (CMP) insurance in place to safeguard consumers. In addition, NAEA Propertymark requires all members to have adequate Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance.
The Association promotes professionalism in the industry and are passionate about the local property market.
