We want more people to be able to realise their dream of owning their own home, and to make buying, selling, managing and improving a home less stressful.

We do this by:

  • providing free, unbiased and easy to use advice
  • providing reputable services you can trust
  • making sure the views of homeowners and aspiring homeowners are loud and clear in the media
  • running events to help first-time buyers get onto the property ladder
  • lobbying industry and government on specific policy issues and to resolve bad practices
  • publishing reports highlighting issues of interest – and concern – to homeowners and aspiring homeowners
