HC Deb 23 March 1999 vol 328 c157W
Mr. Gareth Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what proposals he has for reforming the law in respect of leaseholds. [76342]

Mr. Raynsford

We propose to make it easier and simpler for leaseholders of flats to exercise their right to collective enfranchisement, give leaseholders a new "no-fault" right to manage, improve the standards of residential leasehold management and stamp out specific abuses examples of which have been brought to our attention. Further details are set out in our consultation paper on residential leasehold reform, a copy of which is in the Library.
