New Code of Practice only three months away, says The Property Ombudsman

first_imgHome » News » New Code of Practice only three months away, says The Property Ombudsman previous nextRegulation & LawNew Code of Practice only three months away, says The Property OmbudsmanTPO policy lead Peter Habert tells meeting that new rules for estate agents, auctioneers and property guardians has been well received.Nigel Lewis11th December 20200826 Views The new estate agency Code of Practice revealed in July this year is due to be signed, sealed and delivered to Ministers in less than four months’ time, The Property Ombudsman (TPO) has revealed.Covering all the estate agency disciplines including sales, lettings and property management, TPO’s Director of Policy Peter Habert told a Zoom gathering of senior figures that the plan is to have a finalised copy ready for the new Regulator by the end of March.Unlike its sales, lettings and other sector counterparts which had little regulatory bite, the new over-arching code will be used by the soon-to-be announced regulator to ban agents if their code transgressions are deemed serious enough.The code will cover sales, lettings, property management, auctions, rent-to-rent operators and property guardians.Since the TPO/RICS steering group on the code proposals published the first draft in July a consultation has been underway that finished in early September.Habert (left) says this received over 500 mostly positive suggestions and comments, and the TPO/RICS group will now respond to them before nailing down a final draft.Also at the meeting was new ombudsman Rebecca Marsh, who said TPO had seen a rise of complaints against agents during the pandemic, but said it was still very low compared to the total number of transactions in the market.“Building on TPO’s previous ‘raising standards’ agenda, I plan to widen this and look at how trust and confidence can be improved within the sector,” she said.“This is something for all agents to consider and an invitation for me, as an Ombudsman, to get to know those who rarely see a complaint escalated to us.”Read more about the detail of the code of practice.peter habert The Property Ombudsman Scheme Rebecca Marsh Code of Practice Ropa TPO TPOS December 11, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Proposal would allow 19.3 million vets to join credit unions serving the Armed Forces

first_imgThe National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board is proposing to include within a credit union’s common bond the honorably discharged veterans of any branch of the United States Armed Forces that is listed in a credit union’s charter.This provision would allow veterans to be eligible for credit union membership beyond their active duty status.So, this means 19.3 million veterans will have continued access to credit unions that serve various branches of the military.In justifying its position, the NCUA Board wrote that “[a]ctive duty and discharged military personnel and their families share a similar affinity, typically maintaining a close relationship with their active duty branch of service, largely through Armed Forces associations, publications and continued access to military bases, such as Veterans Administration facilities, base commissaries, post exchanges, and morale, welfare and recreation sponsored programs.” continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Motion Travel has become the official agency of the largest marathon in the world – TCS New York City Marathon 2020!

first_imgThese are the ambassadors of our tourism and the lighthouse entrepreneurs who bravely push forward in spite of everyone and everything and destroy the status quo. Support them. In Motion travel, they are still awake dreaming and bravely walking step by step towards new goals. Running is a constantly growing trend, so over 50 million inhabitants of the European Union run regularly, and according to Josip Ćorić, Croatia is definitely growing, and the most important thing is that the number of runners, clubs and community who create new runners and new marathoners. As Ćorić points out, from the first day he woke up dreaming of this very moment and step by step he built a story that the dream turned into reality. That there is a big difference between desire and goal, says this great story, as well as its continuation, since Motion Travel recently included a marathon in Morocco, and for 2020 they are preparing to organize a trip to the races in North America and Asia where their motto RUN & TRAVEL would definitely come to life. Namely, the trend of running is spreading in Europe from year to year, as well as in Croatia, and as Josip Ćorić points out, as a passionate runner he did not have an offer to go to half marathons and races in various European cities. And that’s where that click or eureka happens. As a passionate travel enthusiast and employee in agency tourism, Ćorić decided to establish Motion Travel, the only agency in Croatia specialized in the departure of recreational, amateur and professional runners and of course their fans to races within Croatia and Europe. Today, after a little over a year and a lot of work and effort, Motion Travel has become the official agency of the largest marathon in the world – TCS New York City Marathon 2020!  Thus, for the first time, Croatia has its own tourist representative for runners at the NY Marathon, a Motion Travel  has managed to position Croatia as one of the 54 countries in the world that have a representative at the largest racing event in the world. This cooperation will enable all runners from Croatia and the region to more easily access information, entry fees and medals. “The racing population in Croatia increasingly travels to foreign races where we already offer them attractive trips and as the crown of the offer we want to offer runners from the region all major races and thus be at the top of the world agency offer of racing trips. It is difficult for us to predict in which direction the niche is developing because we are currently the only ones going in that direction and we are the initiators of both outgoing and incoming, but we think we are going at a good pace because after a year and 3 months we already have two majors. we travel to more than 15 different races across Europe and are recording constant growth. We see definite growth in offering travel on all continents. ” Ćorić points out as his new goal and the dream he wants to fulfill. Once a upon a time… or the story starts like this nekako. center_img “The beginning of communication with the organizers was already in April this year when we sent the first part of the documentation. Since the establishment of the agency, our goal has been to become the official ITO (International Tour Operator) for the NY Marathon, so we carefully “step by step” started working together. Through half a year and meeting the strict conditions we had to meet, such as being the ITO of one of the major marathons, and as we are already the second year of the ITO for the Berlin Marathon it was a great advantage for us. After sending the rest of the documentation and checking the quality of work, checking all the items we listed, we received confirmation that Motion Travel will be the official ITO and that Croatia gets the first travel agency for another major world racing event. says Coric. RELATED NEWS: As Ognjen Bagatin from the Bagatin Polyclinic points out, it is important to celebrate other people’s success, encourage and build the perception of success in Croatia. Proof of how to succeed in Croatia. A little over a year ago, a great idea was born, an idea that hit the need of runners in Croatia and offered a solution to the problem. Cover photo: TCS New York City Marathon / Illustration HrTurizam.hr Thanks to the HrTurizam.hr portal, I have the honor of being the source of information, and the “power” to connect people, entrepreneurs and tourist stories, all with the aim of generating added value and synergy. To date, I have merged hundreds of entrepreneurial tourism stories in Croatia. Also, there is no greater happiness when you watch some entrepreneurial ideas develop from year to year and manage to fight for their place under the sun. If in this process in one small part I can personally help and push, that’s it, my mission is fulfilled. FIRST TRAVEL AGENCY SPECIALIZED FOR RUNNERS OPENED – MOTION TRAVELlast_img read more
