Absence from an estate agency office

Skip listen and sharing tools

A manager or officer in effective control of a principal or branch office may be absent on annual or long service leave, or because of illness or other personal reasons.

If they are to be away for eight to 30 days, the principal agent or officer in effective control must appoint, in writing, either an estate agent or an agent’s representative to replace them during their absence.

If the manager will be absent for more than 30 days, approval for the appointment must be sought from the Business Licensing Authority.
