The meeting, which was hosted by ALEP, was a follow-up to a roundtable held last summer and facilitated informal discussions on issues currently affecting the leasehold and enfranchisement sector.

Alex Greenslade, ALEP’s Honorary Secretary, commented:

“These biannual meetings have allowed us to agree a set of objectives and, importantly, put in place a strategy for continued collaboration and consultation, which is vital for raising standards in the sector.”

Janie Strange is Joint CEO of the IRPM. She commented:

“The Institute of Residential Property Management delivers a portable professional qualification in residential property management.  It is open to anyone working in the sector. Our aims include raising standards in the sector and generally improving the standing of the sector in the eyes of the public. By working with other professional bodies, we are able to strengthen our commitment. We are pleased to be working with the ALEP, and the other organisations in the group, for the mutual benefit of our organisations and our members.”

Patrick Bullick, Chairman of National Association of Estate Agents- London Region, said of the event:

“NAEA & ARLA are pleased to be working closely with other member bodies, relevant organisations and government to deal with the often complex issues that can arise around leasehold ownership. Our aim is to help raise the awareness of agents and the public to these issues and how best to deal with them.”
