<Anchor> The

government has decided to investigate all real estate agents suspected of being involved in charter fraud.

If the problem is confirmed, I wrote the expression 'I will sweep', saying that I would cancel my qualifications.

This is Reporter Lee Hye-mi on the sidewalk.


Real Estate, which brokered several charter contracts for Mr. Kim, the 'Villa King' who died last year, is still operating without any restrictions.

The so-called '2400 organization', which carried out charter fraud with 3,000 villas.

As a result of SBS coverage, it was confirmed that the real estate that brokered their contract was also operated with the same name and phone number.

I have a lot of regrets about that (brokered) real estate.]

Although damages from charter fraud continue, only two real estate agents have been suspended for violating the Licensed Real Estate Agent Act over the past four years, so the application and regulation of the law on real estate agents is loose.

Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Won Hee-ryong said today (29th) that brokerages involved in charter fraud are still continuing illegal brokerage activities, which is shocking, and ordered a full investigation into brokerages suspected of participating in charter fraud.

He emphasized the zero-tolerance principle, referring specifically to revocation.

Housing City Guarantee Corporation Hug also decided to clarify the responsibilities and duties of brokers when signing up for charter guarantee.

[Lee Byung-hoon/Acting President of Housing and Urban Guarantee Corporation: Until now, when signing up for deposit return guarantee, the realtor information was not entered because it was not a required input, but we are trying to promote entering that part as a required item.]

Early next month, we plan to announce a comprehensive plan that includes a plan to support charter fraud damages and system improvements, including revisions to related laws.
