New Estate Agency listings that don’t display a price can no longer be uploaded to Rightmove from today.
The portal has introduced new data fields to comply with National Trading Standards Estate and Letting Agency Team material information rules.
Fields such as price on application POA and offers invited have been removed, so a listing will not be set ‘live’ unless there is a price in it.
As with the other portals of Zoopla, Rightmove and On the market, Rightmove has introduced new data fields for tenure and council tax on new listings.
Speaking at the Propertymark national conference yesterday, David Cox, Legal Director of Rightmove warned that none of the portal’s listings are technically compliant now.
This is because CRM systems have failed to provide the required data to automatically enter data into the fields
Cox said agents can enter the relevant information in the property description but wqrned that the lack of co-operation from data companies means no listings will be fully complete.
Dedicated categories such as tenure or Council tax will say “ask the agent2 if no information has been provided through the required data fields.
Cox urged agents to ask their CRM provide about providing the required data.
At David Phillip Estate Agents all our vendors can be reassured that we are fully compliant with all aspects surrounding the new legislation and that their portal listings have all been amended accordingly.
When we started our business, we invested in Alto CRM which is powered by the Zoopla Property Group (ZPG) – not only does it ensure that we are fully-compliant but it also allows us to have a fresh and relevant database of buyers looking for homes in the local area.
