About Us

Born in May 2012, Property Reporter is an online news service for the UK property industry, reaching over 37,000 industry individuals every day through our website and daily newsletters.

Our readers are a mixture of landlords, letting agents, investors and other property professionals from across all sectors of the housing industry including; mortgages, residential and commercial lettings, property management, solicitors, technology, equity release, investments, construction and estate agents.

We know our readers want to form (and often share) their own opinions, so we simply report the news and let them do just that. Our readers are the experts and part of Property Reporter's ethos has always been to bring them the facts and nothing else.

We send out daily newsletters to make sure our readers are kept informed of all the latest developments in the industry, and we try and engage in discussion across a range of social media platforms – encouraging friendly debate about the industry is something we think is very important!

As well as covering property news and comment, Property Reporter is also home to a number of independent bloggers from across the industry, all of whom provide unique news content for their specialist area. These include key decision makers for UK housing professionals, landlords, letting agents and industry bodies.

Our editor Warren Lewis, has been part of the team since its launch and has several years' experience working as a journalist in the housing industry. Supporting Everton has ensured Warren has a finely tuned sense of humour with some of his written pieces appearing in the national press and several books. His greatest claim to fame is meeting Bob Carolgees and Spit the dog.
