Getting work from Estate & Letting Agents

The Problems new DEA’s face getting work from Estate & Letting Agents?

Most Domestic Energy Assessors enter the business from enrolling and completing a Diploma with a Training Agency.  The advertisements from the Training Agencies are in our national & local newspapers proclaiming the myth that large amounts of cash can be made from the thousands of houses and flats needing to be sold through out the UK.

It is true that people are always buying & selling houses, however the problems for DEAs is who controls the decision making and who is performing EPC certificates for them before you even decide to ask them for jobs? Entering the market is swamped with problems, especially dealing with all the Estate & Letting Agents in your own area. It is case of too many fools rushing in, when patience and guidance from this website can save you time and money.
