We are so proud that people are nominating us for the Women In Housing Awards.
As you know we work tirelessly for ALL leaseholders who are caught up in the complicated leasehold system. If you think we deserve to be nominated for this award please take a moment to complete the nomination process.
We are suggesting the following categories:
- TEAM OF THE YEAR – National Leasehold Campaign
- WOMEN OF THE YEAR – Katie Kendrick (founder of the NLC)
TEAM OF THE YEAR
The NLC was launched in Jan 2017 and has gone from strength to strength. The past 12 months we have:
- Held a demonstration in London which was supported by many MPS.
- Parliamentary Select Committee Inquiry: Which produced a damning report which was highly critical of the law and developers actions – Jo Darbyshire & Katie Kendrick gave verbal evidence in Westminster and along with 700 pieces of evidence Clive Betts (Chair) stated it was the largest amount of evidence they have ever received for an inquiry.
- Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) Agrees to launch an investigation into leasehold Mis-selling.
- The Law Commissions Consultations on Enfranchisement, RTM & Commonhold – The NLC ladies have been a recognised stakeholder in the Law Commissions extensive consultations. The recommendations will be published in due course.
The NLC have galvanised leaseholders. Leaseholder’s now have a voice, our voices are being heard at the highest level and we will continue to make as much noise as possible until we are reLEASED.
If Leasehold Knowledge Partnership (LKP) was run by women they would win this award hands down. Without them the NLC would not be where we are today, and for that we are extremely thankful.
