To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to the Answer of 19 November 2018 to Question 189727 on Leasehold: Reform, if he publish the minutes of that meeting.
The Secretary of State held an industry roundtable on 8 of November to press attendees on what further action they could take to support existing leaseholders with onerous leases. He reiterated his view that unfair leasehold practices have no place in a modern housing market, and pressed attendees to go further and faster in identifying and making proactive variations to onerous leases in the consumer's favour. He was clear that ground rents which doubled every ten or fifteen years should be a thing of the past and expected information in leases to be clear and transparent to consumers. No formal minutes were distributed to attendees.
