James Brokenshire’s appointment to Housing Secretary

Mark Hayward, Chief Executive, NAEA Propertymark and David Cox, Chief Executive, ARLA Propertymark welcome James Brokenshire’s appointment to Housing Secretary this morning: “We welcome James Brokenshire into his new role as Housing Secretary, following Sajid Javid’s move to Home Secretary. Over the last 12 months, housing has been high on the political agenda, with Sajid Javid and his team working closely with the industry to make qualifications for property professionals compulsory, and ultimately make the process of buying, selling, renting or leasing a property better for consumers. We look forward to meeting the new Minister and working with him and his team over the coming months and hope the Department’s position and policy focus stays on track.”
