Following on from the damning report from the CMA on Friday 28th Feb we are encouraging Leaseholders to write to their MP to bring this to the attention of the government this week to urge them to take ACTION.
WE NEED TO KEEP THIS ISSUE IN THE SPOTLIGHT AND WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DO THAT.
We have written a template letter, but please edit as you need to. The more personal it is to your situation the better (don’t forget to include you address in your email)
Many thanks for your continued support.
Dear (Name of MP)
I am writing to you as a Leaseholder who is trapped in the Leasehold Scandal.
I am sure you are aware the Competitions & Markets Authority (CMA) announced Enforcement action as they have found troubling evidence of potential mis-selling and unfair contract terms in the leasehold housing sector.
We have had:
8 Government Leasehold Consultations.
A damning Select Committee Inquiry report which received the largest pieces of evidence any Inquiry has EVER received.
And now a damning CMA report which has confirmed leaseholder have been unfairly treated and proposed buyers misled by housing developers.
How much evidence does the government need to take immediate ACTION? The CMA announcement confirms that they have been systematic failures.
The government promised in 2017 they would Ban future houses being leasehold and also reduce ground rent on future leases to ZERO. This has NOT happened. We are still no further forward. Words are simply not enough. Leaseholders have had enough of waiting for the government to stop these abusive practices and help existing leaseholders who are trapped.
As my MP I ask you to raise this again directly with Ministers.
Many thanks for your continued support
