Leasehold Houses and Ground Rents: A response from ALEP

ALEP welcomes the announcement by Sajid Javid that the government plans for leasehold reform
include banning ground rents for new leasehold houses. Members of ALEP have been aware of, and commenting on, these issues for some considerable time and it is good to see that the government has confirmed its commitment to address the leasehold issues highlighted in its White Paper.
