Orders of the Day — Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Bill [Lords] (8 Jan 2002)

Ms Sue Doughty: Affordable housing is a major problem for many of our constituents, particularly in the south-east, and as a result there are many leasehold properties, especially in my constituency where, despite what the public appear to think, a lot of people live in small leasehold properties. It is often said that beggars cannot be choosers and there is a shortage of property in the area, so I disagree...

Public Bill Committee: Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 42 - Winding-up resolution (15 Jan 2002)

Ms Sue Doughty: I beg to move amendment No. 6, in page 21, line 9, at end insert 'in person, by secret ballot'. This is a small amendment. It would be desirable for voting on this important matter to take place in secret so that people were not left open to all sorts of pressure, which would be wrong.

Care System (16 Jan 2002)

Ms Sue Doughty: I enjoyed the news from God's own county. It is very much a contrast to life in Surrey. My father is 80 and lives in Yorkshire and I have told him. "Don't come south. Stay in Yorkshire." [Hon. Members: "Go to Stockton."] I am not going as far as Stockton. Many Members have spoken about what is almost crisis management and the problem is not that we resent it if care homes make a profit. Any...

Public Bill Committee: Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 103 - Cessation of management (17 Jan 2002)

Ms Sue Doughty: I beg to move amendment No. 12, in page 52, line 36, after 'passed', insert 'by not fewer than 51 per cent. of the members of the company, voting in person by secret ballot.'. The amendment is similar to an earlier one. We took note of the discussion on that but we still have some points to make. If a company is to be wound up, many people will have an interest in it. Without a quorum of 51...

Public Bill Committee: Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 149 - Statements of account (22 Jan 2002)

Ms Sue Doughty: In moving the amendments, we are trying to draw attention to the problem that arises when a leasehold property is either bought or sold, by ensuring that the clause provides for regular information about service charges in a specific accounting period and a written statement of accounts. When a property is bought or sold, people are effectively under the cosh, trying to make transactions in a...

Public Bill Committee: Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 149 - Statements of account (22 Jan 2002)

Ms Sue Doughty: I thank the Minister for her explanation. I still have some concerns about people being able to get accurate information in a timely manner when a property is bought or sold. Many people need to know where they stand financially at such times. Knowing where they will be six months down the line will not help them sort out their finances when exchanging property. Can the Minister help?

Public Bill Committee: Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 149 - Statements of account (22 Jan 2002)

Ms Sue Doughty: I am still having difficulty determining the sanctions that would face someone who used that opportunity to raise charges. What sort of deterrents will be in place? At the moment, it can be a nightmare to find out what the charges will be. People in that situation settle on a realistic charge, work out the balance and then tend to walk away. They take the hit, which is not right. I still do...

Public Bill Committee: Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 159 - Requirement to notify long leaseholders (22 Jan 2002)

Ms Sue Doughty: I beg to move amendment No. 98, in page 81, line 23, leave out 'must be in a prescribed form' and insert— 'must contain such information as may be prescribed'. This is a small amendment. Its purpose is to ensure that prescribed information is contained in the notice, but that the notice does not fail on a technicality. It would make a minor improvement to the wording. No one wants someone...

Public Bill Committee: Home Energy Conservation Bill (24 Jan 2002)

Ms Sue Doughty: Having heard such wonderful words about you, Mr. Benton, I look forward to working with you. I also support the views already expressed on the need to spend longer on this vital Bill. On the one hand it is good that it is on its way, but on the other hand it is sad that we are in this position yet again. For years, as a member of the public, I signed petitions about the subject matter of...
