As the focus on leasehold arrangements continues to gather pace, it will be interesting to see how today's announcement that people buying new-build houses in England will no longer be obliged to enter leasehold agreements will play out in practice. 

News that the Law Commission has included a project on Residential Leasehold & Commonhold, & Unfair Lease Terms, within its forthcoming 13th Programme of Law Reform is also positive.

It will be interesting to see how this unravels. For queries in the meantime please speak to Rebecca Kibby, legal director in conveyancing services.
