Women in Residential Property – Leasehold Reform Webinar
May 25, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Billed as the biggest set of reforms to Leasehold Law in forty years, the Government’s proposed changes to Leasehold impact all aspects of the residential property industry and yet understanding of both the proposed reforms and Leasehold as it currently operates remains poor throughout many sectors.
The escalating ground rents scandal led to the development of a package of reforms designed to make it easier and cheaper for homeowners to buy the freehold or extend their lease, and to take control of the management of their block of flats or an estate. The reforms also aim to improve commonhold to make it the preferred alternative to leasehold.
