Man who posed as real estate salesman charged in court

SINGAPORE : A 59-year-old man who posed as a real estate salesman was charged in court on Wednesday.

Lum Chap Heng was not registered with the Council for Estate Agencies (CEA), but he allegedly presented himself to potential clients as "Roy" or "Ron Lim", an "associate manager" with HSR International Realtors.

Between June and July last year, Lum allegedly posted flyers carrying his mobile number on the walls and notice boards of HDB blocks in the Jurong West area, advertising for landlords and tenants.

Lum also allegedly represented a flat owner to find potential tenants for her property, negotiated property transactions directly, as well as conducted flat viewings.

CEA said Lum was not registered with it and did not have a written agreement with HSR to carry out estate agency work for them.

If found guilty, he can be fined up to S$25,000 or jailed for up to 12 months on each charge.
