This month’s coverage has covered a real variety of topics and issues, and shows the breadth of the work carried out by the CA, and the areas in which its opinion is needed and actively sought. From mortgage prisoners to leasehold, rentcharges to upfront information, reservation agreements to the digital revolution happening in the sector, these are key topics for the CA and we have seen coverage over the past month on all of these.
With a General Election now called, we can expect further details from all the major political parties in the weeks ahead on what their priorities and plans are for the housing and mortgage market, and it will also be interesting to see how key MHCLG projects like the greater provision of upfront information and reservation agreements are now taken forward. The lead-up to the end of the year is certainly going to be interesting and the CA will be on hand to provide its view and ensure the best interests of the membership are fully represented.
