ARLA and NAEA propertymark have released their manifesto “Election 2019: Regulate and reform the housing sector.” Click here to download the full document.
The number one call on the wish list is for government to adopt the recommendations of the Regulation of Property Agents Working Group and regulate property agents. This it is hoped will improve professional standards with a code of practice, licensing and qualifications.
Other policy requests include:
Stamp duty reformed with the abolition of the 3% surcharge for second properties and a reduction or no Stamp payable for over 65s downsizing their homes.
Property MOTs should be introduced with an annual inspection for rental properties.
The court system should be reformed to cut the time it takes to gain possession.
Landlord taxes should be reviewed to reduce costs and attract landlord investment
All new houses to be sold as Freehold and not leasehold.
Access to the Rogue landlords and Property Agents database should be given to tenants, agents and regulatory bodies.
Help for the Private Rented Sector with Energy efficiency and climate change
