Increase in awareness of redress drives significant increase in complaintsThe annual report from the Property Redress Scheme reveals a significantly increased workload created in part by more people knowing about their right to compensation.Nigel Lewis23rd May 20190696 Views More and more consumers are now aware of their right to compensation when things go wrong in the property market which has helped double the number of cases handled by the UK’s leading redress scheme last year.The Property Redress Scheme (PRS) says it issued 77 final decisions during 2018, up 103% from 38 the year before, and awarded £300,000 to complainants.The most common grievances against sales agents were about misleading or incorrect information and bad communications, while for letting agents it was breach of duty of care and poor service and complaint handling.“Our scheme continued to grow steadily in the first three quarters of 2018 and this reflected a still expanding market, better enforcement of the regulations and much higher awareness of the legislation,” says Sean Hooker, Head of Redress at the PRS (left).“2018 was a fundamental year for the Property Redress Scheme, and this was mirrored in the wider sector, as further developments in the Government’s “project” to reform the housing market started to take shape”.The PRS is the largest redress scheme in the UK with close to 11,000 estate agency branches signed up, helped by the closure of rival Ombudsman Services: Property in August last year.PRS has released its annual report, which reveals that out of all the agents it expelled from the scheme last year, 48% came from London and 14% from the North West.Its average award was £1,102 but last year it also made an award of £25,000 in favour of one landlord whose agent had failed to pass on rent and behaved unprofessionally.Read more about redress schemes.Sean Hooker Property Redress Scheme PRS May 23, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

El Gobernador Wolf emite una declaración en apoyo de los esfuerzos de mitigación de la COVID-19 del condado de Allegheny anunciados hoy

first_imgEl Gobernador Wolf emite una declaración en apoyo de los esfuerzos de mitigación de la COVID-19 del condado de Allegheny anunciados hoy June 28, 2020 Español,  Press Release,  Public Health Hoy, el Gobernador Tom Wolf elogió al Ejecutivo y al Departamento de Salud del Condado de Allegheny por las medidas de mitigación adicionales que el condado está implementando en respuesta a los aumentos significativos de casos de COVID-19 en los últimos días, y enfatizó que la situación en el condado de Allegheny debe servir de recordatorio para todo el estado sobre la continuidad del uso de máscaras y otros requisitos de mitigación. La mayoría de los casos nuevos en el condado de Allegheny son en personas de 19 a 49 años con una edad promedio de 27 años.“Felicito al Ejecutivo del condado de Allegheny, Rich Fitzgerald, y a la Directora del Departamento de Salud, Dra. Debra Brogan, por la decisión de cerrar bares y restaurantes para la venta de alcohol en los locales en el condado de Allegheny a partir del 30 de junio. Tomaron la medida correcta para luchar contra el reciente registro de aumento de casos de COVID-19 y recordar a todos los residentes y empresas que la mejor defensa que tenemos para evitar la propagación de la COVID-19 y mantener a salvo a los residentes de Pennsylvania es continuar cumpliendo con el requisito de usar máscaras, practicar el distanciamiento social y seguir las pautas de seguridad incluso, y especialmente, durante la fase verde de reapertura. No podemos volvernos complacientes a la hora de realizar las medidas que sabemos que pueden proteger a todos de la propagación de este virus muy contagioso.“Espero que una medida rápida por parte del condado resulte en una contención rápida y el retorno a un mayor compromiso para proteger a todos los residentes, especialmente a los más vulnerables de contraer COVID-19, y que esta medida sirva de ejemplo para que el resto del estado continúe los esfuerzos de mitigación implementados para proteger las vidas y los medios de vida.“Los esfuerzos de mitigación en todo el estado incluyen el requisito que indica que todos deben usar máscara cuando estén en negocios, cumplir los límites de ocupación en todas las empresas y reuniones, practicar el distanciamiento social, lavado de manos y desinfección de superficies: estas prácticas simples pueden hacer una gran diferencia para protegernos a nosotros mismos, a las personas de la tercera edad, a nuestros vecinos y nuestras comunidades. Incluso si cree que no se enfermará, puede enfermarse y transmitir el virus a alguien que tal vez no pueda recuperarse tan fácilmente”.View this information in English.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
