    Survey on new build Houses and Flats built since 2005

    Moderator2 has kindly granted my request for permission to share this survey on the Long Leasehold Questions forum.


    To assist in the Government's 8 weeks consultation on Leasehold announced this week, the survey below has been launched to gather as much information as possible about new build leasehold houses and flats built since 2005 :-


    LKP/Leasehold and Commonhold APPG survey on new build Houses and Flats built since 2005

    This survey is to help gather information about new build leasehold houses and flats completed in the last 12 years. The survey is sent on behalf of the Leasehold Knowledge Partnership (Registered Charity no 1162584) (LKP), the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Leasehold and Commonhold reform, and the Facebook group the "National Leasehold Campaign".

    We confirm your email address will remain confidential to the LKP charity and will not be passed on to third parties or used for other purposes by LKP. At the end of the survey period your details will be deleted unless you specifically select to be kept on a list for further surveys or choose to add yourself to our mailing list. An anonymized summary of the information produced will be published to help inform the groups who have created this survey, the Government and the wider public. the results will appear on the LKP web site.
    The survey closes on 12th September.

    Excellent idea to ask on this forum! I would not personally complete the LEASE questionnaire. Just my opinion speaking as a leaseholder. Have already submitted my opus...

      Hopefully many leaseholders will respond and give the Government the fullest and widest picture possible

        Please complete the above survey if you have a property built in the last 12 years and help us all in our campaign for a transparent and fairer leasehold system.

        I hope no one minds me posting again to raise awareness of the above survey........

        Seeing all the leasehold questions and issues posted on this forum confirms that there are a lot of you around to be of help and who will hopefully also benefit from a comprehensive Parliamentary review of leasehold - and hopefully a reform.

        This is a one off opportunity for all us leaseholders to give the fullest possible picture of the situation to this very important review. The form is quite simple, with two fields for free text , so you will be able to say all that you wish.

          A reminder please to all leaseholders with New Build Houses and Flats built since 2005 to complete the above mentioned Leasehold Survey by September 12.

          It is crucial for us leaseholders that as much information as possible about the current situation is submitted to the Government review on Leasehold later this year in the hope of establishing a much fairer and transparent and consistant practice.

          Thank You

            LAST CALL

            Please complete the above survey in Post #1 which is closing in 2 days time..........

            Now is your chance to have a voice on leasehold/maintenance costs, charges and issues

            Only by telling how it is, can we hope to get a fair system in the leasehold market

              Can we have separate surveys for each national developer for sale of leasehold flats ?

              Why do developers sell leases for 99 Years and 125 years term and include annual ground rents starting from £400 and £500 p.a when the start of proceeding for forfeiture is set at £350 p.a ?

                Because leasehold is the greatest scam perpetrated on English and Welsh 'home owners'!

                Mind you, all is well because that bastion of leaseholder rights - the government funded site Lease, is holding a webinar on the reforms;

                Quote: "Register now for the free webinar

                The government has published a consultation paper – ‘Tackling unfair practices in the leasehold market’ – seeking views on, amongst other things, its proposals to end the use of leasehold tenure for new build houses. Leaseholders are encouraged to respond.

                Join us in this webinar giving background information on the proposals, to help you make an informed contribution to the consultation.

                The webinar will be on Thursday 7th September, at 7pm.

                The recording of the webinar will also be available for viewing on the LEASE website."

                All will be well with LEASE on our side - their funded function, isn't it. They would never sit on the fence.

                  Good Morning all.
                  i have always beena reader and this is my first post on here.

                  Ok so in 2007 i bought ground floor flat as my first place and ww were told it was share of the freehold.
                  There are only 2 flats as its a house conversion.

                  The ground rent should not be mixed with the service charge. It is money that really belongs to the company, and appears on its statutory accounts.

                  You should bill yourself, as it is not really you that is billing you.

                  Thanks for responding.
                  I should have been more clear in what I was trying to say. I need to implement a service charge seeing I will have the whole freehold. It is what my solicitor advised. It is not based on the spur of the moment. A service charge will happen whether upstairs like it or not....

                  Evening all! I have reached a stalemate situation with my freeholder in regard to gaining consent for alterations. ie building an extension, which would involve taking out supporting walls and building into the garden. In theory they have agreed to the work, but are of the opinion I need to 'buy the...

                  Your lease is to inhabit the flat for the term of the lease.

                  The garden is leased to use as a garden in your lease.

                  You are leasing the garden as a garden, not as a habitable area.

                  You will not be "buying" part of the garden, you will be changing the
