A 59-year-old man was charged on Wednesday with holding himself out to be a sales person without being registered with the Council for Estate Agencies (CEA).

Lum Chap Heng allegedly committed the offences on two occasions from June to July last year.

He is said in a third charge to have held himself out as being a sales person of a licensed estate agent without first getting an authorisation by written agreement from the licensed agent, HSR International Realtors, from July 20 to 26 last year.

He introduced himself as Roy or Ron Lim, an "associate manager'' with HSR to potential clients when he allegedly did not have a written agreement to carry out estate agency work for the company.
