A real estate agent who trespassed on a woman’s property while trying to get her to list her house with him has been found to have engaged in unsatisfactory conduct.

Margaret Thomson appealed to the Real Estate Disciplinary Tribunal after the Real Estate Authority’s complaints assessment committee decided not to take further action on her claims against Cedric Foote.

Foote works for Tall Poppy Real Estate in Cambridge.

Thomson said the incident happened when she had emptied the main part of her house of furniture to have some work done to it, and was working in the sleepout at the back of the property.

Her furniture was in a removal van.
