The results of our Consumer Protection Regulations market awareness survey

27th November 2013

Given the new responsibility for both the agent and the vendor; the increased requirements to provide purchasers with information that would affect their transactional decision and increased punishment levels, the results make for interesting reading.

Please be aware that the results may take a moment to load and you can click to enlarge them. However if  after a few seconds they have not loaded please click here to view.
