Unfortunately it seems some of the rogue agents still in existence received a nice plug from the Telegraph last week. This won’t help purchasers trying to sort out the wheat from the chaff:
quote article (24/5/08) entitled:
Telegraph Homes Abroad: Here’s one you can trust
“Of course, the risks can never be completely eliminated but sensible precautions include checking whether an agency is a member of the Federation of Overseas Property Developers, Agents and Consultants (FOPDAC)or the Association of International Property Professionals (AIPP)”.
Looks like the AIPP and the dodgy members in their midst have achieved the type of endorsemnt/recognition they’ve always been after.
Smack on the leg, Telegraph.
