Permitting the renting of properties (7)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a double definition.

'permitting' is the first definition.
('let' can be a synonym of 'permit')

'renting of properties' is the second definition.
(eg letting a house out)

'the' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for letting that I've seen before include "activity in the property market" , "Renting out; allowing" , "Allowing or leasing" , "Leasing (a property)" , "Dealing with property" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
