Mike Amesbury – 2021 Comments on Increasing Ground Rents

The comments made by Mike Amesbury, the Shadow Housing Minister, on 15 September 2021.

Whilst this is a welcome ruling from the CMA it highlights the glaring lack of action from the Government to tackle the leasehold scandal.

For each year that the Conservatives drag their feet, ever more innocent homeowners are being trapped in feudal leasehold homes, facing extortionate fees, poor service and restrictive contract terms without recourse.

We cannot wait for the CMA to investigate every abuse of leasehold. The Government must finally bring forward leasehold reform, which has been promised for years.
