WARWICKSHIRE firm Blythe Liggins has been appointed legal adviser to the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA), the largest professional body for estate agents in the UK.
Richard Thornton, a partner at the Leamington law firm, said: "This is quite a coup for us. We will be providing legal advice to the association and its members on general matters, as well as specific issues like internal disciplinary procedures and government legislation.
"The NAEA has nearly 50 branches in the UK, and is leading the way in Europe by helping found the European Confederation of Estate Agents."
The 10,000-member association was formed to protect the public against fraud, misrepresentation and malpractice and to fight restrictive practices and encourage high ethical standards.
It is regularly consulted by both British and Continental governments, for example by the UK Government on the Property Misdescriptions Act.
