  • Overview

    The key recommendations are:

    • The abolition of the two year ownership requirement before a tenant is able to extend their lease or enfranchise;
    • When seeking a statutory lease extension, a tenant should be able to extend for a 990 year term – not 90 or 50 years as is currently the case;
    • Control over the landlord’s costs for dealing with a lease extension or enfranchisement claim;
    • The removal of the requirement for the tenants to pay the landlord’s costs associated with a right to manage claim;
    • The expansion of who can qualify to present a right to manage claim;
    • Reduce the number of notices a tenant needs to serve in respect of a right to manage claim, which will reduce mistakes, time and costs;
    • A significant shift towards promotion of commonhold (where a person is allowed to own a freehold flat) principally by removing the requirement for leaseholders and other interested parties to unanimously agree to convert to commonhold.


    Mark Steggles, Partner in the Dispute Resolution team at Thomson Snell & Passmore comments as follows:

                ‘The proposals are ambitious and wide ranging.  The commonhold regime that was introduced 20 years ago never really took over – possibly because there was not enough structure in place to make it a viable alternative to leasehold ownership.  The recommendations in the report seek to address this.  Any steps that can be taken to remove procedural traps and reduce costs for tenants in either right to manage claims or leasehold enfranchisement claims will be welcome news to leasees.’
