Kate Faulkner OBE is one of the UK’s leading property experts. She is passionate that most of the problems in the residential property market can be solved if the media, industry and government worked together to educate consumers on how to carry out property projects. To aid this, Kate has set up a free consumer education site Propertychecklists and working groups for Home Buying and Selling and The Lettings Industry Council which are attended by DLUHC.
Kate regularly features on BBC TV and radio including You and Yours and Moneybox. She has also appeared on ITV’s This Morning and co-hosted LBC’s Property Hour. Kate works closely with journalists all over the country to help ensure their work is accurate and up to date. This is not easy when housing policies differ between Scotland, NI, Wales and England.

Kate earns her money by working with lenders, brokers, insurance and legal companies, agents, surveyors and the removal industry. This is on a strategic and communication basis, primarily to help companies better engage with consumers.
She is regularly asked to present seminars, keynote speeches and to host conferences and panels within the property sector.
To ensure Kate gives best advice to consumers, the industry, media and Government, she analyses what’s happening in the economy, property prices and rents, and the impact this has.
Kate’s business provides consumers with independent up to date advice on how to buy, sell, rent, invest, renovate, maintain or build a property. She does this via a free service called Propertychecklists.
The consumer site is supported by forward thinking companies and organisations, such as Belvoir, Habito, Reeds Rains, Your Move, Barratt Homes, Direct Line, Big Yellow, Landlord Action, Chase de Vere and Tenancy Deposit Scheme.
Kate has written 11 property books including four for the consumer organisation Which? – Buy, Sell and Move House; Renting and Letting; Develop your Property and Property Investment Handbook.
She has also presented a feature on Housing Solutions to our property crisis for BBC’s Inside Out
