LEASEHOLD REFORM CONSULTATION


6 September 2017

The Leasehold reform consultation by the Department for Communities and Local Government looks at a range of measures to tackle abuses of leasehold for residential properties; in particular the sale of new leasehold houses and onerous ground rents. The consultation will also seek views on excluding leaseholders from possession orders because of arrears of ground rent; and views on freeholders being able to challenge service charges for mixed tenure estates with shared facilities.
