About Me

I originally trained in and qualified as a Chartered Surveyor, talking the valuation and estate management option.
My initial work involved property valuation and estate management including commercial property.

After later becoming a Fellow of RICS I resigned before retiring as I felt that the professional body which I belonged to was not moving in the right direction publicly and heads of the organisation at the time would not engage in discussion about this.

I have pioneered and since perfected new methods to improve the way in which houses are bought and sold across the nation having conducted research into the current failures frequently occurring during this process.

These failures, cost both the public and the agents servicing their property searches a great deal of lost time and money through the inefficiencies which are currently being allowed to remain within all local housing markets throughout the country.

My proposals: www.improvethehousingmarket.co.uk

It is time that all of these were addressed and dealt with to bring forward a new and efficient way to transact house sales and purchases across the whole of Britain.

my expertise in the industry

I joined the property industry in 1969, trained and qualified in 1974 and have worked within its sectors ever since.
Though I've now retired, I continue to advance my theories regarding how to improve the nation's housing market in particular, based on my extensive working experience.

A cautious step back would be most apposite, especially whilst major changes are already underway within the housing market generally. If the private letting market is largely supplied with properties from private investors (which it is), it’s a question of balancing the aspirations of both landlords and tenants there. If tenants of private lettings don’t actually want longer term commitments but would mostly prefer flexibility, then already knowing that private landlords don’t want minimum three year tenancies, rather suggests that such a requirement would not help the provision, by private landlords, of more properties available for rent and nor would it help tenants by allowing them the flexibility they need whilst renting in the private sector. From this, the private sector appears to only be capable of managing short-term lettings. The clear inference from this is that those tenants who wish for added security ought to be provided with property owned and managed by the public sector. This has worked perfectly well in the past so there are substantial reasons directing that all governments (of whatever persuasion), should provide such tenanted property in the future. Housing associations and charities may naturally be involved in supplying these services as well. There should of course be a symbiotic working relationship between both private and public sectors providing adequate levels of social housing, each supplying properties to suit the different tenants requirements in the best way they can. Surely it can’t be right to try and turn the private sector into an arm of the public sector?
