An important change to the regulations related to property management.
The professional licenses in real estate, including property managers’ licenses, shall be abolished starting from 1 January 2014. Along with licenses any conditions currently imposed on candidates to the profession, including the requirement for professional practice, are disappearing. The obligation of maintaining the liability insurance was retained (however, legislation does not provide any sanctions for the lack of it). The legislature set the minimum education of a property manager at the lower secondary level.
The trade federations and associations failed to reach an agreement among themselves on a common certification of candidates for property managers.
