In this month’s podcast Eddie and Paul are joined by Head of Redress at the Property Redress Scheme, Sean Hooker, who discusses his recent blog ‘Chaos Theory! Changes, changes, what’s next for the property world?’

With the political environment in a state of flux, Eddie, Paul and Sean attempt to decode the confusion surrounding legislation in the private rented sector (PRS), including delving into upcoming consultations that could impact landlords.

Eddie, Paul and Sean discuss the ‘tenant fee ban’, ‘Section 21’ updates, and Sean gives his opinion on housing courts. With political changes emerging from Westminster featuring heavily in this episode they also consider what ‘right to buy’ would mean for the PRS, ideas surrounding rent controls and whether there could be a ‘Housing Act overhaul’ on the horizon.

The key take home message … make sure you are prepared for upcoming regulation and legislative changes, whatever they may be!

As always, Eddie and Paul round up the podcast by asking Sean … ‘If you could make one new property law, what would it be?’
