The petition on the Government website opposing the impending fees ban has now reached almost 8,000 signatures.
Essex agent Rob Farrelly is behind the petition, which calls for a cap on fees rather than a ban.
If the petition attracts 10,000 signatures, then the Government has to respond.
Farrelly, of Friend & Farrelly Property Services, said he is disappointed that ARLA is not supporting the petition, which launched last month.
He told EYE that the industry body has “expressed no interest and stated that they are taking their own measures”.
He went on: “I believe we can hit the 10,000 milestone very soon. I would love to get a response from the Government, especially when the topic is so hot.”
