It also said the CBRE had not provided evidence of how it calculated the estimated rental value or gross returns.“We told CBRE to ensure that similar ads in the future did not quote estimated rental values and average gross yields from letting properties, unless they held adequate evidence to substantiate the claims.“We also told CBRE to ensure that the basis used to calculate the estimated rental values and average gross yields were made clear in the ads.”Read more about recent ASA judgements.One cRown place advertising standards authority ASA CBRE October 10, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
