[데일리한국 박준영 기자] Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Won Hee-ryong warned on the 29th, “We will definitely find malicious brokers through a full investigation of brokers suspected of engaging in charter fraud, and if they are caught, we will punish them according to the principle of zero. tolerance, such as revocation of qualifications (single deletion).

Minister Won made this announcement during a visit to a licensed real estate agent’s office in Hwagok-dong, Gangseo-gu, Seoul on the morning of the same day.

Minister Won said, “I heard the shocking news that the agency that organized fraudulent jeonse houses is still attracting ordinary people’s tenants through illegal brokerage activities such as jeonse prices above the market price and real estate consulting by brokers’ assistants.” At the industry level, I ask you to make your best efforts.”

In an interview with the head of Gangseo-gu, Minister Won said, “We attract tenants by promoting the fact that rental companies must register for guarantees, but in reality, there are many cases where rental companies do not register for guaranteeing them and abusing them for charter fraud.” Although we accept this, we ask local governments to thoroughly control whether they are fulfilling their public duties and take firm administrative action.”

“The government intends to announce comprehensive measures to improve the institutional weaknesses of the entire lease agreement process,” he added.
