Property Services

The property and housing industry is amid profound change as it is due to be regulated by a newly formed government body following the passing of a Bill in 2019.  All professionals will need a Level 3 qualification or above to be licensed to sell or let property, whilst owners and directors would need to be qualified to level 4 or above.

Our property services programmes are designed to support professionals in reaching the new industry standard, attaining the necessary qualifications and become recognised as trusted property professionals.

Babington were able to offer and deliver a solution that met our core requirements.
