ARLA Propertymark comments on new inquiry launched by the Communities and Local Government Committee

Friday 13 October 2017

PRESS RELEASE: David Cox, Chief Executive, ARLA Propertymark, comments on the new inquiry launched by the Communities and Local Government Committee on the private rented sector:

“ARLA Propertymark welcomes this inquiry. This is a great opportunity to review enforcement in the private rented sector. For years successive governments have introduced law after law with no evaluation of their effectiveness. With what appears to be a coherent strategy on the regulation of the PRS coming from the Government, it is an ideal time to review what has worked and what hasn’t.”
