ABSTRACT
The article focuses on news related to the real estate sector of Great Britain from 1987 to 1989. In 1987, commercial and industrial agents Dunlop Heywood & Co. have been bought by N. Brown Group in a deal worth £7.65 million. In 1988, militant Welsh nationalists bomb six real estate agencies in London, England. The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)/Incorporated Society of Valuers and Auctioneers (ISVA) failed to get a two-thirds majority and had to wait until 2000 for their merger to materialize.
