If you act as a sales representative for a registered land agent you must be registered. Sales representatives may be involved in the sale of land or businesses, and this includes the lease or letting of land. If you are only involved in the leasing of land that is not to be used for the purposes of a business, you do not need to be registered as a sales representative.
If you are registered as a land agent, you may act as a sales representative for another agent without needing separate registration as a sales representative.
Additionally, if you conduct an auction of land or a business for a land agent, you must be registered as an auctioneer. To apply for registration you will be required to meet the educational requirements (see below) and, in addition, be registered as a sales representative or land agent.
