Too many estate agent boards?
Sick of seeing an explosion of estate agent boards down your road? Did you know they can be controlled by planning regulations? `For Sale' or `To Let' boards are limited to only one board on each road frontage and they must be on the building or land to which they relate. It is unlawful for more than one estate agent to erect a sign on any property even if is has more than one road frontage. Even more important is that for sale and to let notices must be removed 14 days after the sale or letting. I am pleased to report that Brent planning service take their regulatory role seriously and do pursue offending estate agents. Have just heard that the council has recorded 27 convictions this financial year in relation to illegal estate agents’ signage in the Willesden area and others are being investigated. Let me know if you have any concerns in your road.
