Property Listings Can No Longer Mention Price on Application


Price on application is a term you would often find in property listings. It is used by estate agents to have potential buyers or renters call to find out the asking price instead of seeing it in the listing. The reasons for using POA instead of listing the property’s price can vary. It can be used if the property’s price has not been set, because it is so unique that determining a price is difficult before buyers or renters show interest, or because owners want the price to be kept private.

However, according to our estate agents in Newham, using POA in listings will no longer be the case. Here’s why:

  • The Estate Agents and Letting Agents Team of the National Trading Standards has decided that ‘price on application’ or POA can no longer be used in property listings as it contradicts the current consumer protection legislation.
  • NTSELAT considers the average consumer needs to know a property’s price in order to make an informed choice and they must know this from the listing, before they contact the estate agent.
  • This decision is part of a series of decisions made by the NTSELAT in collaboration with the estate agency industry to improve how important information is disclosed in property listings.
  • Therefore, estate agents must now list the asking price in their property listings to abide by this ruling.
  • According to our estate agents in Newham, this will increase transparency as regards property asking prices and help solidify the relationship with and between property buyers, renters, landlords, and sellers alike.
  • In addition, our estate agents in Newham highlight the fact that, in certain cases, using the term ‘price on application’ actually drove interested parties away from a property, causing them to think that it was out of their range. Therefore, the NTSELAT decision may have yet another benefit apart from increasing transparency.
  • NTSELAT also published a list of ‘material information’ that should be disclosed in property listings. It includes the property’s council tax band, information on its tenure (freehold or leasehold), as well as if the property is in a flood risk area.
  • Estate agents had until the end of May to comply with the above decision and include this information in their listings.

From just a walk in to prompt service delivery. Adil took time to explain about property market and was very professional in every aspect of negotiation and final house letting process. So far property management has been satisfactory.

I chose REMAX and Adil specifically to manage my property in the Canning Town area because I could tell the enthusiasm and customer service levels were extremely high. I have not been disappointed given the current market and global situation over the past year and more I could not have asked for a more attentive agent then Adil and the wider REMAX team

I approached REMAX after being dissatisfied with another agent in the area, who was very poorly responsive, negligent with our property, & unable to rent it out for 3 months. From the first interaction, Adil was highly responsive, provided advice on what was required to bring the property back up to standard, and swiftly obtained quotes for all work that needed to be carried out. REMAX oversaw completion of the extensive work & secured tenants in approximately 4 weeks. I initially contacted REMAX, amongst other agents, due to their high Google ratings. Based on my own experience, I rate the level of customer service & professionalism 5 star. Thank you Adil & Team.

I have just secured a new apartment using the REMAX Canning Town Branch, and during the whole process, Mr Masood Qaiser was very helpful. I contacted him through Facebook regarding the available property. He was very professional, good communicator. Patient and reliable. Explained all the processes and followed up with emails and calls, which helped put my mind at ease and helped me throughout the whole process, making the process smooth and easy. Even he helped me with switching the bills. So I very much recommend this agency. I had a positive experience with them.

I saw so many properties to rent in Facebook . You have so many advertises and when I ask Julian if they are still available He doesn't reply to me. Even not only him ..There is another guy I can't remember his name and he doesn't answered on my messages as well. This is the reason to give you only one star

I've used Remax Canning Town Branch for Letting my apartment in Rathborne Market. Mr Rizwan is reliable and goes the extra mile to help and secure the professional tenants as I wanted. On top of his knowledge and experience, Rizwan is kind and personable, a pleasure to work with him, and I recommend REMAX wholeheartedly.
