Real estate agents have been told to improve their professional integrity after the ICAC said it received about 70 complaints a year involving property transactions. The ICAC and the Estate Agents Authority said guidelines would be issued to agents to help prevent corruption. The most common malpractices involve soliciting unauthorised commissions, obtaining advantages for referring businesses, and forging documents to deceive employers.
