Since the start of the credit crunch in late 2007 there have been a growing number of private investors and investment companies offering to buy property and then rent it back to the original owners, this sector has now grown into what has become known as the “Sell and Rent Back” Industry.

Although most investors operate in an ethical manner there were some concerns shown by various groups to protect the interest of the consumers involved, and so after a brief consultation period the Financial Services Authority released details of the regulatory framework for the Industry.

The main aim The Financial Services Authority in Regulating the Industry was to protect the interest of vulnerable consumers who, due usually to financial problems exacerbated by the credit crunch, were sometimes seen to be selling their homes on unfavourable terms.

From August 2009 any company wishing to work in the Sell and Rent Back sector has required authorisation by the Financial Services Authority. Initially from August 2009 until June the 30th 2010 there was be what was known as “interim” regulation and full regulation began from July the 1st 2010.
