The NSW government has reinstated Property Services Commissioner John Minns less than four weeks after terminating him from the same role.

Karen Stiles, executive director of the Owners Corporation Network, an advocacy group for strata owners, welcomed Mr Minns’ reinstatement.

“The property sector is increasingly complex, as are the needs of people buying, selling or renting their home in the rapidly expanding apartment sector,” Ms Stiles said.

“Leadership from government and industry is essential to get ahead of emerging challenges and deliver confidence. [We] welcome the return of John Minns to the role of Property Services Commissioner, to effect his ambitious plans to lift standards across the real estate and strata management industries.”
