Languages of publication
In accordance with the legal rules that applied until the end of December 2013, the Polish real estate intermediary was obliged to perform in accordance with these rules as well as professional standards, with particular accuracy and care appropriate for the nature of the profession as well as the principles of professional ethics. On 13 June 2013 Polish Parliament adopted an Act amending the existing law on the exercise of certain professions, abolishing regulation of the profession of real estate intermediary or agent. From 1 January 2014, virtually all requirements became obsolete, like the need to possess a license, to possess proper education, the completion of an apprenticeship and the lack of a criminal record. The question arises how the real estate market coped with compliance with the law as well as professional standards and ethics. The aim of this article is to present proposals for new solutions in the area of professional standards for real estate intermediaries, in response to the changed markets conditions, and to compare the changes in the principles of professional ethics.
