Professor Christopher Hodges has been appointed by Housing Minister Heather Wheeler MP to the Regulation of Property Agents Working Party. The working party is to advise on a new regulatory and complaints framework for the entire property agent sector to better support homebuyers, sellers, landlords, leaseholders and tenants. The working group is chaired by Lord Best and has ten other members, of which Prof Hodges is the only academic. The Minister’s mandate is to ensure that any new framework, including any professional qualifications requirements, a Code of Practice, and a proposed independent regulator, is consistent across letting, managing and estate agents.
