“Any problems that arise from owning a listed building are, without exception, due to lack of knowledge and it was on this basis that we structured the Club,” says founder Peter Anslow.
Buying a dilapidated 17th-century Kentish barn in the 1960s and discovering how little advice was then available, Peter was inspired to found The Listed Property Owners’ Club to help people in a similar situation. Today, the Club is the authoritative source of information and advice on the maintenance, responsibilities and obligations of ownership of Britain’s protected buildings.
Peter now works with his son Martin and daughter Natasha, both of whom have first-hand experience of complex conservation projects on listed homes of their own. Together, with a team whose comprehensive expertise has been gathered over more than 25 years, the Club is in a unique position to save its members time, expense and needless anxiety.
Since 2013, Peter has also been an active political campaigner supporting the owners of Britain’s half-a-million or so listed homes through The Listed Property Owners’ Club’s Political Campaign for Owners. In 2016, the Political Campaign achieved a major victory when, thanks to its ongoing efforts, the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Listed Properties was officially recognised. The Club continues to lobby Westminster for a reduction in VAT for repairs and approved alterations on listed buildings to 5%.
“The magazine alone is worth the membership fee and I would recommend that anyone owning a listed building should become a member.”
