The Rent Control Department of Ghana is set to license Rent Agents in the country ahead of the new Rent bill being drafted.
The new rent bill is expected to take into consideration certain factors that will ensure that, there is a win-win situation for both landlords and tenants in the country.
According to the Public Relations Officer of the Rent Control department of Ghana, Emmanuel H.Kposu, rent agents are going to be licensed to ensure that rent operators in the country are all captured in the new digitization system that is going to be introduced.
“the new bill when passed will capture certain factors and it is going to license all operators and this license will help us collate data on all houses and rent issues in the country”.
Responding to a question on how people can recognize certified agents, Mr. Kporsu said, the licensed agents will be scrutinized and there will be a database system that will apply people to apply as rent agents.
Meanwhile, current operators will be given the opportunity to license themselves as agents.
