The Council for Estate Agencies (CEA) has charged Tan Yang Po, 50, in court with allegedly acting as an estate agent without being licensed with CEA.

Tan faces five charges of acting as an estate agent without being licensed as an estate agent, the council said in a statement on May 21.

It noted that this is the first prosecution case related to unlicensed estate agency work for the sale of foreign properties.

The CEA said that under the Estate Agents Act, an estate agent must be licensed with CEA before it can market local or foreign properties in Singapore.
