Where next for property post Brexit and Election?
Although it will still take some time to actually leave the EU, we have a much clearer picture of which direction of travel the UK is heading.
With a new majority government in place for the next five years, a Queens Speech under our belt as well as a manifesto to draw from and the latest property forecasts now out, we do have a much better of idea of what landlords and property investors will need to be aware of over the next five years.
Find out about our expert panel’s worries and fears and, bring your own questions to test their knowledge and seek answers to property questions which are currently on your mind.

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. She earns her money mainly through consulting projects with the industry.

Russell Quirk is well known in the property industry as both an estate agency boss and PR guru.
He’s been round the block a few times having run traditional and online businesses in the sector for over 25 years and is infamous for his opinionated and straight-talking stance on anything and everything property. He takes no prisoners.
He’s a regular pundit on housing matters for TalkRADIO, LBC and the BBC and is a founder panellist for TalkRADIO’s 'Plank of the Week’ on YouTube, a wry critique of media types that "are just asking to have fun poked at them", says Russell.
