Residential Property Forum

We host this industry-led forum. It helps to inform our work to maintain financial stability in the UK.
We are recruiting a new chair for this forum. The deadline for applications is 11 February 2022. Find out more below.


The Residential Property Forum monitors the residential property sector in the UK. It looks out for any issues that arise and it provides insight on the housing and mortgage markets. 

People working in the sector lead the forum and make up the majority of its members. We organise its meetings. They are hosted by our Executive Director of Financial Stability Strategy and Risk. It usually meets once a quarter. Sometimes there are extra meetings to examine specific topics if issues emerge.

We set up the forum in 2010. It works alongside the Commercial Property Forum that we founded in 1997. Both forums inform the work our Financial Policy Committee does to maintain financial stability in the UK.


Members of the forum come from the residential property sector. They include, but are not limited to: house builders, investors, landlords, intermediaries, housing market experts and commentators, estate agents and financial institutions.

Representatives from the Bank of England, Financial Conduct Authority and Government departments come to its meetings and take part in its discussions.
