Ireland has had a registration scheme for property professionals for some years now

Basically it would mean that landlords/managing agents etc would have to either comply with the law or face sanctions, up to and including losing their licence to trade.

Now why we cant have such a scheme in the UK is beyond me

Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is withered, the god of day goes down upon the dreary scene, and—and in short you are for ever floored.
