I note since the latest general election that the new Father of the House is Conservative MP Sir Peter Bottomley. One of his main activities has been to push through leasehold reform.
This is particularly in response to “new builds” with large ground rent charges.
Has anybody got any views how this may pan out for older type leaseholds for flats etc?

SIR PETER CAMPAIGNS ALONGSIDE THE LEASEHOLD KNOWLEDGE PARTNERSHIP FOR A POSITIVE IMPROVEMENT ON LEASEHOLD REGULATIONS IN BRITISH LAW.
I have for a long time campaigned for reforms to British law to end the injustice faced by leaseholders across the country.
We can be grateful to the organisations and hard-working volunteers across the country that have been involved in this campaign. One charity that stands out is the Leasehold Knowledge Partnership who’s aim is to cast a spotlight on crooked landowners and managing agents.
Please consider signing this petition to abolish leasehold.
As Co-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Leasehold and Commonhold Reform, I am also grateful to Jim Fitzpatrick MP and Sir Edward Davey MP for their work to further this campaign in Parliament.
