Knowing that a number of my constituents have raised the issue of leasehold properties with me I raised the matter in Parliament this week during a debate on proposed legislation on leasehold and freehold reform.

I called upon the Government to end the scourge of Ground Rents on leasehold flats, reform the archaic process for Leasehold Extensions, and tackle the abuse of Service Charges.

A link to the full debate can be found here – 20:16:41.

For anyone with an interest, the Government is currently running a consultation on restricting Ground Rent for existing leases. The consultation can be found here…/modern-leasehold-restricting… and runs until 17 January 2024.
