Ogier's first quarterly property law clinic of 2017 with the
Jersey Estate Agents' Association focused on the differences in

Anna said: "The property law clinics are a great
opportunity for agents to raise issues informally and for us to get
a sense from them about transaction flow.

we get a broad view of market activity and we are able to see how
issues can affect different parts of the transaction process, and
how they can be resolved."
JEAA President John Quemard said: "We really appreciate the
working relationship that the JEAA has with the Ogier property

inform its clients of the best possible practice."
The Jersey Estate Agents' Association was formed in 1965 and
encourages best practice within the industry, and its members are
subject to a Code of Practice.
