  • 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

            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.

                  ashleymartin
                  Hello, I wondered if anybody can help me.

                  I am currently in the process of buying a victorian conversion flat which is 1 of 4 flats in the building. It's leasehold and the freeholder is still active, however the management company (which I believe was set up by the 4 leaseholders) has been...

                  Thank you all for your help in this matter and i am sorry about the confusion. I have read the lease another time and other reports from the solicitor and come to understanding that:

                  UKLandlord1000
                  Hi,

                  I have an unusual problem with the boundaries of my freehold. Has anyone experienced anything like this?

                  I have owned a leasehold flat for 19 years (ground floor in a typical 2 storey terrace house). Some years ago, I bought the freehold jointly with the leaseholder upstairs...

                  Turn the issue on its head. Had the boundary line been incorrectly drawn in your favour, would you gift it back to your next door neighbour?

                  Adverse possession would I think apply here (horrible law that basically sanctions theft -- but be that as it may).

                • lease extension - deed of variation
                  leelee758
                  Hi, I owned a share of freehold and needs to extend my flat lease.
                  I have a reply from the management that the solicitor has confirmed a deed of variation has entered for my flat.
                  What does that mean? and what are the steps to take after that on my part?

                  any help is appreciated....

                  No point asking the 'management' in leasehold about lease extensions as that is between you and the freeholder or whoever is your head lessor. Even if the management understood they have no role, and it is just as likely they haven't a clue.

                  Your description "the solicitor has confirmed...

                  You need to go back to them and get an explanation.

                  Deeds of variation can be used to extend a lease, but they will generally have to be signed by you, and signed by a witness, to should have been in no doubt that there was a deed of variation, unless they are saying that a previous leaseholder...

                • Exterior wall painting question.
                  JulieLevere
                  Hi all

                  We have recently got a letter from my freeholder saying they want to paint the exterior wall of our flat (we live in a converted house and own the ground floor).

                  They want any quotations by 30th Sept. My father in law has renovated houses and would paint it instead of...

                  Are you sure they are not trying to enforce a repairing obligation on you.

                  Otherwise, they would need a section 20 notice, and that notice would ask if you wanted to nominate a contractor; it would not ask for quotes.

                  Any contractor nominated would need to be able to work to...
