Detail of outcome
This document sets out the government’s response and proposed approach for a new regulatory framework for letting and managing agents.
On the 1 October 2017 Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, announced proposals to address the imbalance of power in the private rented market by regulating letting agents.
This call for evidence seeks views on whether a new regulatory model is needed for agents in the leasehold sector. We want to understand what form regulation of letting and managing agents should take to best protect and empower tenants and leaseholders.
It is an evidence gathering exercise that will enable government to bring forward detailed proposals early next year.
