** The validity of a FFC is 01 January of a year to 31 December of the same year and estate agents are therefore required to renew by no later than 31 October of each year to obtain a FFC for the following year.
The following must be taken into account when preparing for the renewal :
** When making a payment, please ensure that your Unique Seven Digit Reference Number is correct.
** This Unique Seven Digit Reference Number remains the same every year.
** As each estate agent is allocated a Unique Seven Digit Reference Number, separate payments must be made for each estate agent.
** Irrespective of whether a Notice of Renewal of the Fidelity Fund Certificate is received or not, it is still the responsibility of each registered Estate Agent to renew their Fidelity Fund Certificate before the due date of 31 October of each year.
** It is also imperative that should the employment of an estate agent be terminated with a firm, that the Principal gives due notice to the EAAB to update the records of the firm. Should that same estate agent, join another firm that the EAAB is given due notice of their change of employment.
** The importance of this being advised timeously is so that if the same estate agent pays for their renewal without advising the EAAB of his change in firm details, the FFC will be printed with the incorrect firm name.
** It is also the responsibility of the Principal of the firm to advise the EAAB of any change in physical or postal address, contact no’s etc in order for our records being kept up to date.
** It is important for all estate agents to be aware of the late renewal penalty which is applicable if renewals are made after the due date of 31 October each year.
