Leasehold home ownership consultation – Federation response

We have responded to the Law Commission’s consultation on the extension and enfranchisement of residential leases.

8 January 2019

Our response supports proposals to simplify the process and reduce the costs paid by leaseholders.

We also welcome the special provisions relating to shared ownership leases, proposing a new mechanism to allow them to be extended whilst maintaining their existing exemption from enfranchisement.
