A PROPERTY consultant who lied to her client that a property price reduction could only be achieved if $5,000 was paid in addition to the agent's commission was jailed for three months in Western Court yesterday. Wu Tak-leung, 28, pleaded guilty to obtaining property by deception on July 6 last year. Magistrate Ian Candy said it was a breach of trust even though he understood that such an act was a regular practice in the business and Wu had informed her supervisor. However, he said the fact that Wu had deceived her own client, who had trusted her, was an aggravating factor. Wu was a property consultant with Grand Union. Her client Kwan Yin-wah had expressed interest in a flat at South Horizon and wanted the price cut from $3.16 million to $3.15 million. Wu lied to Ms Kwan that the proposed price reduction could be achieved only if she agreed to pay an extra $5,000 to the agent's one per cent commission. Ms Kwan paid $36,500 on July 6 to Grand Union as commission for the purchase, including the $5,000. Defence lawyer Edward Shum said Wu was married with a baby daughter. She only received $600 from the extra payment.
