To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what areas of concern to residential leaseholders and commonholders his Department is investigating; what plans he has to address those areas of concern; and what steps he is taking to work with leaseholders' groups and charities to resolve their concerns.
The Government's Housing White Paper 'Fixing the Broken Housing Market' highlighted we would "take action to promote transparency and fairness for the growing number of leaseholders". On 25 July the Government published two consultation documents relating to reforming leasehold. We are determined to rectify abusive practices within leasehold.
The Department has invited leaseholder groups, charities and other stakeholders with an interest in leasehold reform to respond to the consultation and make their views known.
