Property agents: appeal against a warning or prohibition order

How to get a warning or prohibition order varied and revoked and how to appeal a decision

If you get a warning or prohibition order made under the Estate Agents Act 1979, you won’t be allowed to do any estate agency work.

Apply to have a notice varied or revoked

You can ask for your warning or prohibition order to be varied or revoked.

This means that we’ll cancel your order if you agree to not do any work that is covered under the Estate Agents Act 1979.

Contact us with:

  • your name
  • contact details
  • the type of work you will or won’t do

You’ll need to pay £2500 for us to change your order. We’ll make the necessary arrangements when we speak to you.

Appeal a warning or prohibition order

You can appeal to an independent tribunal if:

  • you’re banned from being an estate agent: for example, you’re convicted of fraud
  • you’ve received a warning order: for example, you haven’t met your legal duties

 You can make your appeal on the GOV.UK website.
