IMLA: Cross-party collaboration the answer to the housing crisis

The Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association has called for cross-party cooperation to solve the UK’s housing issues.

Kate Davies, executive director of IMLA, called for an end to the political sparring, now the General Election is done with.

She said: “Even with a Conservative majority the challenges facing Britain’s housing market won’t be tackled by a quick fix.

“Instead, we need a long-term strategy which provides a coherent and co-ordinated approach to ensuring a sustainable supply of housing in both the public and private sectors, together with a robustly regulated system to ensure that buyers and renters are properly informed and protected.

“This will require significant cross-party and cross-departmental co-operation, with authoritative leadership from the highest level.

“We would urge the Prime Minister to ensure that housing is given enhanced status in his new administration, and we look forward to working with the new ministerial team.”
