Crackdown on estate agents

Crackdown on estate agents

A BAN on multiple 'for sale' notice boards has been introduced by Waltham Forest Council.

Deputy council leader Clyde Loakes, cabinet member for environment, said: “We’re not going to just lie down and let businesses or individuals clutter up our borough.

“Clearing up our high streets is a key priority and where we find resistance we will fight back using all the tools at our disposal and even access more tools if needed.”

The council, which started an initial crackdown on property agents in 2011, was one of a handful of London boroughs to be given the right to implement a ban last year.

The local authority issued a total of 826 Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) against letting and estate agents in the borough in just a single year during the initial crackdown.

Mr Loakes added: “We realised that many of the larger agents were simply building the cost of the fines into their margins. Not only flouting the law, but flouting our enforcement measures as some sort of acceptable cost of gaining free advertising.”

The five year restrictions will apply to Leytonstone High Road, Hoe Street, Leyton High Road, Forest Road, Crownfield Road and Lea Bridge Road east of Orient Way.
