MATTERS TO CONSIDER

Extracts from Leasehold Reform Notice

https://www.lawsociety.org.uk/policy-campaigns/articles/leasehold-reform/

The government is planning to make the leasehold system fairer for leaseholders. Over several years, it appears that some parts of the residential leasehold system have become unfair for some of those who own flats, particularly some newly built flats.

Some leaseholders face high and escalating ground rents, making it harder for them to sell or re-mortgage their homes.

It also seems that some charges being requested under leases may be excessively high, or are being imposed for permissions and administration fees where they may not properly be required.

Enfranchising or extending a lease of a house or of a flat can be expensive and complex.

Issues that can be unfair include:

  • the method and frequency of ground rent increases
  • high or unclear service charges and one-off bills
  • managing agents charging unexpected fees for permissions or consents
  • the costs of and delays in providing management information
