Need to stop agents targeting Pinnacle residents

Residents of a well-known estate (Pinnacle@Duxton), whose Minimum Occupation Period is ending in December, have been bugged recently by flyers in their letter boxes, at their gates and under their doors from estate agents looking to assist in selling the units.

Residents of a well-known estate (Pinnacle@Duxton), whose Minimum Occupation Period is ending in December, have been bugged recently by flyers in their letter boxes, at their gates and under their doors from estate agents looking to assist in selling the units.

Some have received unsolicited calls; many have received unsolicited visits. It has reached the point where the car park barriers have become advertising spaces for agents to put their pictures and numbers.

One brochure was of a seminar to be held near the estate by a law firm to advise on the sale of public flats.

Besides the nuisance this form of marketing creates, the intensity of which can only increase in the coming months, the fear is that some residents may be swayed into selling, only to regret it later.

It is a public housing estate, open to outsiders, so we cannot prevent agents and visitors from moving in and out frequently.

The relevant authorities, though, should look into this disturbance and perhaps even create a Do Not Sell registry, so residents who do not wish to sell are not bugged by agents and their flyers.
