Industry coalition encourages gov’t to adopt UPRNs

It has been reported that over 50 key industry bodies and estate agents have written to the housing secretary Robert Jenrick urging the government to adopt UPRNs (unique property reference numbers) across the housing market.

The letter also outlines conditions to avoid bureaucracy within the housing market, which some agents fear may occur. Read more in this article from The Negotiator.
