Plans to raise standards across the entire property agent sector

Much is happening in the world of property currently, and recent news shows that UK Housing Minister, Heather Wheeler MP, has it in mind to raise standards within the UK property sector thus, hopefully, supporting the likes of home buyers, sellers and tenants.

It is stated that a new group of experts from the the UK property sector will be on board in deciding and working on projects to raise standards and build detailed frameworks, codes of practise, regulations and more.

Housing Minister, Heather Wheeler MP, following the announcement stated the following:

For too long, many people have faced incurring fees and bad service from a number of property agents. People should have confidence when buying, selling or renting a home.

Lord Best’s wealth of knowledge will provide a valuable insight and help us make necessary changes to ensure consumers have confidence when buying, selling, letting or renting their home.

So, good news if they actually concentrate on helping people looking to safely enjoy the house buying, selling and renting process and of course it will be more of the same if they concentrate on protecting further the landlords and investors within property as we are already at breaking point with house price values and rentals being charged across the majority of the country.
