Material information for property listings announced

Following requests from estate and letting agents, a property's council tax band or rate and the property price and tenure information (for sales) must be included on all property listings by the end of May 2022, and these data fields will start to appear on portals over the coming weeks. If they are left empty by an agent, this will be flagged on the listing so consumers can see what information is missing and will link to advice on why the information is important and how it may be obtained.

These changes represent the first phase of a project by the National Trading Standards Estate and Letting Agency Team, in partnership with industry leaders and the UK’s major property portals, to define what constitutes material information for property listings.
