Backbench Business Committee: Leasehold and Commonhold reform
Sir Peter Bottomley and I went in front of the Backbench Business Committee to present our case for a debate on leasehold and commonhold reform and were granted a 3 hour debate on the topic in the House of Commons this coming Tuesday.
We recently set up an All-Party Parliamentary Group on leasehold and commonhold issues, to which over 50 MPs and Peers have already signed up. The issues we’re looking at compromise everything from exorbitant ground rent charges to problems with retirement homes. Leaseholds effect millions of homeowners across the country including many residents in Tower Hamlets.
