Mike Amesbury – 2020 Comments on Leasehold Reform

The text of the comments made by Mike Amesbury, the Shadow Housing and Planning Minister, on 21 July 2020.

This report is another reminder of the Government’s failure to reform the long-running scandal of leasehold.

Despite numerous Government press releases and other announcements over the years, there is still no sign of real change for 4.5 million homebuyers locked into unfair feudal leasehold contracts that should have been consigned to the history books long ago.

Homebuyers don’t need another consultation, they need action: the Government needs to come forward with legislation and finally end this medieval injustice.
