The Property Redress Scheme (PRS) has named the members of its new advisory panel.
It will replace the PRS Advisory Council and aims to ensure all parts of the property sector are represented and have their views heard when it comes to PRS policy decisions.
The members of the panel for each category are:
· Landlord – Soek Yee Ashley Wong
· Tenant, buyer, seller – Robert Brown
· Lettings – Lynne Moss
· Sales/auction – Richard Powell
· Sourcing – Rupert Collingwood
· RLM & surveying – Andrew Chater
· Inventories – Daniel Evans
· Guaranteed Rent – Mandy Chandler
· Agent compliance – Jenny Markham
· Trading Standards – Grant Reardon
· Student/build to rent – David Campbell
· Holiday Lets – Vanessa Warwick
· General Legal – Robin Stewart
To strengthen its governance and accountability, the PRS is also launching a new member panel, bringing forwards a new, open, and transparent forum to benefit both members and the Property Redress Scheme.
Applications are open to all members of the PRS and particularly applications from members with experience of:
· Estate agency
· Inventory providers
· Lettings and property management
· Landlords (private/company)
· Property sourcing
· Rent to rent providers
· Residential leasehold management
· Other property professionals
Sean Hooker, head of redress at the PRS, said: “We’re approaching our second decade of redress and have industry leading expertise as a result.
“We recognise the expertise of our members too and that’s why we want them to help us with their feedback, guidance, advise and support. The member panel gives them that opportunity as well as enabling them to engage with other Panel members to share knowledge and raise standards.”
Tim Frome, managing director of HF Resolution, which owns the PRS, added “Our new member panel is a key part of our strategy for improving our offering to ensure we are not acting in isolation from the sector we represent.
“We want to know more about how redress works for our members – and how we can make it better still in the future.
“It is anticipated that the Property Redress Scheme member panel will convene twice annually, once in person and once virtually. Applicants are invited to apply both as PRS members or nominees acting on their behalf.”
