Will the rental and sale of apartments go up after the law on realtors is passed?


They say that rental and purchase prices will rise because in Ukraine they propose introducing new rules, according to which all operations with any real estate will have to go through intermediaries - brokers or realtors. This is stated in bill No. 3618, registered in the Verkhovna Rada. If the project is accepted, you will have to issue an apartment passport, enter it in a special base and get a unique number. Without this number, you can’t even post an ad.
Statement by experts: “The mandatory participation of realtors will mean that when drawing up a contract of sale people will have to pay a commission, usually about 5%. This is several thousand dollars. You will have to pay a commission to a realtor when signing a lease agreement. For realtors, such a law can be beneficial. The demand for their services will increase. Certification and examinations will not pose serious problems. As experience in certification of other activities shows, exams are simple and can be passed by a person who is familiar with the basics of legislation in their field. However, you will have to pay for compulsory training and exams. "
But after all, before the adoption of the law, everything happens de facto, i.e. The legislator will only legitimize the current state of the market to bring it out of the shadows and increase revenue in the public sector.
