Reforms to Leasehold Enfranchisement

Reforms to Leasehold Enfranchisement

7 January 2019

CILEx response to the Law Commission consultation on reforming leasehold enfranchisement.

In addition reforms should encourage streamlining of processes to achieve greater parity between leaseholders of flats and those of houses, but be cautious of the oversimplification that a 'one size fits all' approach could give rise to.
