ROPA: What will it mean to you?

first_imgComplying with new regulations, suggested by the Regulation of Property Agents (RoPA) working group, could have a significant impact on the workload of letting, an Artificial Intelligence (AI) assistant, says agencies need to consider how they can factor in the additional responsibilities alongside their existing obligations and the needs of their business.Proposed regulations include a new industry regulator, stricter licensing, a Code of Practice and mandatory qualifications.L to R: Elad Ben-Ami, Offer Peylan, Tom Reiss“These new requirements will benefit the industry in the long-term, discouraging rogue operators and contributing towards raising the public perception of agents,” says Tom Reiss, CEO and co-founder of “In the short term there will be additional work involved, some agents will feel under pressure to comply in time, not to mention additional costs.”The new rules will benefit the industry by discouraging rogue operators and raising the public’s perception of agents.Agents can use automation to save time on administration which will give them more time to understand the new regulatory framework set out by RoPA, improve customer service and target new landlord business.“So many parts of the lettings process can now be automated, reducing repetitive tasks staff have to carry out and the scope for human error,” says Reiss. “Using AI to automate large parts of the lettings process can help agents to stay on top of day-to-day business, prepare to comply with the new regulations and stay up-to-date with existing legislation.” Regulation of Property Agents (RoPA) Tom Reiss automation proptech AI regulations October 1, 2019The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Lacazette sent off as Arsenal go down at Borisov in Europa League

first_imgUnai Emery’s side have now won just two of their last nine away matches — last weekend’s victory over the Premier League’s bottom club Huddersfield and an FA Cup win against third-tier Blackpool.Arsenal enjoyed plenty of the ball in the opening stages, but it was the hosts who almost grabbed the lead as debutant Nemanja Milic flicked Igor Stasevich’s cross onto the outside of the post.The visitors’ best chance in the first half fell to Lacazette, only for the Frenchman to head over when unmarked at the back post.BATE made him pay when they snatched the advantage on the stroke of half-time as Dragun climbed highest to send a header from Stasevich’s free-kick looping into the top corner.Arsenal were struggling on a difficult pitch in Belarus, and even when Lacazette did find the net just before the hour mark, he was rightly flagged offside.Emery, who won three consecutive Europa League titles with Sevilla from 2014-2016, threw on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Lucas Torreira and Denis Suarez in an attempt to find a breakthrough.But Arsenal continued to labour and their night took another turn for the worse as Lacazette was sent off for lashing out at Aleksandar Filipovic with his elbow in the 85th minute.Elsewhere, Inter Milan claimed a 1-0 win at Rapid Vienna despite Mauro Icardi snubbing the trip after being stripped of the captaincy over a contract row, with Lautaro Martinez scoring the winner from the penalty spot.Wissam Ben Yedder’s 22nd-minute strike helped record five-time winners Sevilla take a large step towards the last 16 with a 1-0 victory over Lazio in Rome, while Benfica backed up their 10-0 weekend thrashing of Nacional by winning 2-1 at Galatasaray.Hatem Ben Arfa netted a penalty but Rennes twice blew a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Real Betis in France, while Olympiakos were held to a 2-2 home draw by Dynamo Kiev.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000BATE Borisov celebrate Stanislav Dragun’s goal against Arsenal in the Europa LeaguePARIS, France, Feb 14 –  Arsenal face an uphill battle to progress in the Europa League after a 1-0 defeat by BATE Borisov in the last-32 first leg which saw Alexandre Lacazette sent off on Thursday.Stanislav Dragun put BATE ahead just before the break in Barysaw and Arsenal never threatened an equaliser, with Lacazette’s late dismissal also ruling him out of next week’s return game at the Emirates.last_img read more

West Coast goes cage free

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Evin Bachelor, Law Fellow, Ohio State University Extension Agricultural and Resource Law ProgramStates continue to battle over whether eggs should come from cage-free hens or caged hens. When we last discussed the topic HERE in May, the governor of the state of Washington had just signed his state’s cage-free requirement into law.Iowa, the nation’s leading egg producing state, has gone the other way in trying to limit cage-free egg production.  Now, Oregon is set to ban the purchase or sale of eggs and egg products from caged hens starting in 2024.  However, Oregon’s law exempts eggs and egg products from caged hens if the sale occurs at a federally inspected plant under the Egg Products Inspection Act or if the caged hens were at a commercial farm with a flock of fewer than 3,000 hens.  You can read the text of the bill HERE.last_img read more
