Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 94 ( 1 May 2024)

Lord Best: My Lords, Amendment 94 is in my name and those of the noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham, and the noble Baronesses, Lady Hayter of Kentish Town and Lady Taylor of Stevenage, and I am very grateful for their support. Before I speak to the amendment, I want to add my appreciation of the life and shock at the loss of Lord Stunell. Andrew Stunell was a terrific advocate for better housing, as a...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 82C (29 Apr 2024)

Baroness Taylor of Stevenage: My Lords, I shall speak to our Amendment 103, and comment on others in this group. I thank the noble Earl, Lord Lytton, for his careful and thoughtful consideration of how we might use the Bill to rectify some of the glaring building safety omissions that are an unfortunate legacy of the Building Safety Act. His proposals on building trustees warrant close consideration, especially as he has...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 76A (29 Apr 2024)

Baroness Thornhill: We fully understand the passion expressed by the noble Lord, Lord Bailey of Paddington, about criminality and having a last resort. We must think of it in regard to the worst rogue landlord offences, of which there are many, and I am sure several noble Lords have seen things worthy of that description. While we do not entirely go along with the noble Lord, we are interested to understand why...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 66 (29 Apr 2024)

Baroness Thornhill: My Lords, I will speak to my Amendment 77 and make a few brief comments on other amendments. Amendment 77 would allow leaseholders to apply to the appropriate tribunal to ensure that freeholders who do not provide the agreed estate management services and allow a block to become run-down can be subject to a penalty at the sale of the freehold. There is clearly an issue of absent freeholders...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 64 (29 Apr 2024)

Baroness Taylor of Stevenage: My Lords, the amendments in this group concentrate on yet another aspect of the regime that fleeces home owners with unexpected and extortionate charges, but in this case, they are levied on residential freeholders living on private and mixed-tenure estates. I had one or two such encounters as a councillor. In one case, there was a five-year battle to get an estate through-road adopted as a...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 63 (24 Apr 2024)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, Amendment 63 in my name was tabled to probe the impact of the proposals in the Bill on ground rent investments, and the effect of prohibiting future ground rent investments, and encouraging divestment from existing ground rent investments, on leaseholders and freeholders. The Government’s intentions appeared to be clear. In 2022, the Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Act effectively...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 54 (24 Apr 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, I will briefly speak to the amendments in my name before turning to the amendments in the names of my noble friend Lord Young of Cookham and the noble Lord, Lord Berkeley. Government Amendment 83 is a clarificatory amendment. Clause 67 outlines that all of Sections 18 to 30P of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 bind the Crown, and that the relevant provisions bind the Crown whether...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 28 (24 Apr 2024)

the Bishop of Manchester: .... In tabling these amendments, my aim is to deal with an issue that in the charity world is specific to a small number of bodies but would severely impact the work that they do. First, I am a leaseholder myself, as it happens, as set out in the register of interests. I have been through the process of extending my lease; my flat is not in London, and it was quite a simple and cheap...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 26 (24 Apr 2024)

the Earl of Lytton: I take the noble Baroness’s point about things changing, but I ask her to cast her mind back—although she was not there at the time, any more than I was—to the great reforms in the Law of Property Act 1925. There was a big discussion about all sorts of matters to do with tenure and getting rid of things such as entails, and modernising the system. If we are to make a seismic...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 23 (24 Apr 2024)

Lord Best: My Lords, I support Amendments 23 and 24 in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Andrews. I can imagine the anguish that must be felt by leaseholders in blocks of flats who are facing the disruption of one or even two new storeys being built on the roof of their flats. With freeholders now having permitted development rights for upward extensions, residents face the disruption, noise and...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 19 (22 Apr 2024)

Lord Gascoigne: ...out in the register of ministerial interests. Government Amendments 19 to 22, in the name of my noble friend Lady Scott, are consequential on the repeal of the right for public authorities to block freehold acquisition and lease extension claims of houses for the purposes of redevelopment. This relates to Section 28 of the Leasehold Reform Act 1967. Removing this blocker will allow more...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 16 (22 Apr 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords for their contributions, and I start by thanking especially the noble Baroness, Lady Taylor of Stevenage, for Amendment 17, which seeks to amend the description of premises that are excluded from collective enfranchisement rights, where leaseholders would otherwise qualify. I know the amendment is well intentioned, with the aim that there is flexibility to...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 13 (22 Apr 2024)

Lord Khan of Burnley: ...Stevenage, which many noble Lords have spoken about. I remind the Committee that this amendment would require the Government to set out a strategy for making commonhold the preferred alternative to leasehold, as recommended by the Law Commission in its report, Reinvigorating Commonhold: the Alternative to Leasehold Ownership. The amendments in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Bailey of...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 12 (22 Apr 2024)

Baroness Taylor of Stevenage: My Lords, just before I move my amendment, I should say that I omitted to thank the Minister for her collaborative approach to the Bill in advance of it coming before the Committee. I now do so and rectify that omission. I also thank the Law Commission, as she did, and the many groups that have a leasehold interest and met us in recent weeks. I hope the Committee will forgive me for not...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 5 (22 Apr 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I will speak to Amendment 7 in my name, which deals with shared ownership—one of the issues touched on by the noble Lord, Lord Khan. Shared ownership was developed in the 1980s and I claim some paternal responsibility for it. It was a route into affordable homes, and there are now some 200,000 shared owners. There is a risk that shared owners will fall between the cracks between...
