Law Commission publishes reports on leasehold home ownership

Housing possession proceedings suspension extended again

On 21 July, the Law Commission published three reports to government on reforming leasehold home ownership.

The reports cover:

  • enfranchisement
  • reinvigorating commonhold
  • exercising the right to manage

The recommendations

The Law Commission has made recommendations for a new, single enfranchisement regime designed to benefit leaseholders of both houses and flats.

It has also recommended:

  • incentivising commonhold to make it the preferred alternative to leasehold in future
  • relaxing the requirements for leaseholders to exercise the right to manage
