Kate Faulkner 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 site www.propertychecklists.co.uk and working groups for homebuying and selling and The Lettings Industry Council. Kate regularly features on BBC TV and radio including You and Yours, Moneybox and 5Live’s Midnight Property Expert as well as LBC’s Property Hour and on ITV’s This Morning. See Kate’s latest media. She earns her money mainly through consulting projects with the industry.
On a monthly basis, Kate analyses what’s happening to the economy, property prices and rents, and the impact this has on consumers and indeed the industry.
