Mike Amesbury responds to announcement on leasehold reform

Mike Amesbury MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Housing and Planning, responding to today’s announcement on leasehold reform, said:

“Leasehold is a symbol of our broken housing system, with millions of England’s homeowners feeling like they’ve bought their home but still don’t own it.

“The Labour Party together with campaigners has been calling on the government to end the this feudal system. The first steps set out today have been a long-time coming.

“With so many announcements and false dawns from successive housing ministers the proof will be in the delivery. Justice must be done for the millions of leaseholders trapped in this system.”
