Centre Responds to Government Consultation on Leases of Houses

Simon Cooper, Russell Hewitson and Martin Dixon have responded to the DCLG Consultation Paper on "Tackling Unfair Practices in the Leasehold Market’

A Centre Working Party, chaired by Simon Cooper, has submitted proposals to the DCLG concerning unfair practices in connection with long leaseholds. The response seeks to explain why the current practice of leasing (in particular) newly built houses instead of selling them freehold, is a market abuse with no practical benefits save the maximising of developers' revenue at the expense of consumers.
