TDS boss Harriott calls for industry action on regulation
Tuesday 3rd July 2012
Time and again, crooked or inept letting agents get away with ‘a slap on the hand’, says Steve Harriott, chief executive of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.

But given that the Government shows no appetite for it, he issues an urgent call for the industry to unite and self-regulate.
Read his views today.
