Yet another petition: Abolish leasehold houses & replace leasehold flats with commonhold

Recommended Posts

Spotted yet another petition out there on the twittersphere:

https://www.change.org/p/theresa-may-mp-abolish-leasehold-strict-regulation-for-residential-managing-agents-be-introduced

Quote

Leasehold should be replaced by ‘’COMMONHOLD’’ for flats which happens in the rest of the Western World .

Houses should NEVER be leasehold since they sit on their own freehold plots. Therefore Leasehold should be ABOLISHED.

The government should take action to protect those existing leaseholders (Flats & Houses) with onerous lease terms which have become toxic.

A full review of leasehold legislation is needed.

Residential Managing agents MUST be regulated since they persecute and threaten tenants with impunity. We cannot allow this to continue.

We want FULL retrospective action for those already stuck in the web of leasehold.

This petition appears to have 2,483 signatures already, which is still not that many given the number of people stuck with ludicrous new-build leasehold houses.

Perhaps it is just that too many people who own property don't understand the difference?
