Renters (Reform) Bill - Second Reading (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I declare my conflicts: I am a former chartered surveyor and I have buy-to-let properties, as declared and set out in the register. I began research on the Bill by trying to establish its primary purpose—what is its core objective? I know it sounds obvious, but I was not convinced; it is not clear. It was revealed as a 2019 manifesto pledge and relates to key proposals from the...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 94 ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I have not heard a voice in the Chamber this afternoon against the amendment from the noble Lord, Lord Best. It is such a refreshing amendment, it is long awaited, and we have heard, and we all knew, that his report was kicked into the long grass many years ago by the Government, and that is something of a disgrace. Even in the Levelling- up and Regeneration Bill debates last year,...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 66 (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Earl, Lord Lytton, on his high-speed gallop through a large number of his Friday afternoon amendments. They were quite technical, and anyone who managed to keep up with them all deserves a prize. It was very good indeed. I will address one of them, Amendment 78F. It is very short but very important. Much of this Bill is designed to protect leaseholders from...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 28 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, it is not on the list but I did put my name to this amendment and I am very keen to support the right reverend Prelate. Much of the debate we have had so far this afternoon seems to be focused on the rich, greedy landlords versus the impoverished tenants. If we strip this away from the debate and focus on these landlords, those addressed in this amendment are charities; they do...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 26 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I support each of the three amendments in this group. I was going to say that the amendment from the noble Lord, Lord Moylan, concerning compensation, was so articulate that it really needed no reinforcement, but I was not expecting the fine history lesson just now, which has reinforced it with great skill and humour. The noble Baroness, Lady Deech, explained that she taught...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 16 (22 Ebr 2024)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I turn to my Amendment 18 in this group. I begin by declaring my interests as both the owner of two buy-to-let investment flats and the occupier of a flat, all on leases. I stand to benefit under the Bill in both situations, which is quite patently wrong. I thank the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Derby for articulating my amendment with greater ability than I can. I want to...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Second Reading (27 Maw 2024)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, there is much to be applauded in the Bill before us today. However, I am concerned that in seeking their objectives the Government are using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. The law of unintended consequences shines brightly through these proposals, and I shall address some of these concerns. I declare my interests as a retired chartered surveyor, as well as other items on the...

Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (Substitution of Cut-off Date Relating to Rights of Way) (England) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Regret (27 Tach 2023)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I will take the same tack as the noble Lord, Lord Rosser, and add my voice to his, following his welcome return to his place in this Chamber. Unless I have misunderstood the proposal—if I have, the explanation is well buried—why proceed with a cut-off date on the registration of these long-forgotten rights of way at all? They are an ancient and important contribution to our...

King’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) ( 9 Tach 2023)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Shipley, and I applaud his comments on homelessness and the desperate need for social housing. I thank the Minister for his particularly interesting introduction to today’s debate, with his apparent investment in the themes of today’s subjects. That approach will be very helpful as the Bills come through, and we will achieve a...

Non-Domestic Rating Bill - Report: Amendment 8 (19 Med 2023)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I rise to support Amendment 8, moved by the noble Earl, Lord Lytton, and particularly the reciprocal duty of disclosure by the VOA apart from for data protection reasons, to which the noble Earl referred—although I object to the latter myself. However, I think it is repugnant that, in this country, where we so treasure transparency in the law and all its constituent parts, the...

Non-Domestic Rating Bill - Report: Amendment 5 (19 Med 2023)

Lord Thurlow: Before the Minister sits down, perhaps I might clarify something I said that, I think, might have been misunderstood. In the context of Amazon—I am sorry to use a particular company, but we all know what I mean by it—I did not say that I wanted to redefine the way in which the non-domestic rating system works; I simply want to redefine the use of the property. A property such as an Amazon...

Non-Domestic Rating Bill - Report: Amendment 5 (19 Med 2023)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I declare my interest as a former chartered surveyor with interests in rating. This amendment and the rest of the amendments in this group clearly call for a review of business rates. I am pleased to add my name to the amendment in the names of the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman of Ullock, and the noble Lord, Lord Shipley. A change which had been promised and which was long overdue is...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 246 (13 Med 2023)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I declare my interests as a former chartered surveyor. The current CPO guidance attempts to deal fairly with owners who are caught up in the process of having land acquired under compulsory purchase, but it remains a blunt instrument. This amendment requires the Government to provide a duty of care, which is an excellent proposal. It is also appropriate, as we heard from the noble...

Non-Domestic Rating Bill - Second Reading (19 Meh 2023)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, perhaps I may introduce my remarks with the fact that I am floating high on a cocktail of painkillers, in advance of dental surgery tomorrow. If I start mumbling, dribbling or reading out the order of business by mistake—or indeed, if I keel over—I apologise in advance, and please move on gracefully to the next speaker. I declare my interests as on the register. I am a former...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (14th Day): Amendment 448 (22 Mai 2023)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I declare my interest as a former chartered surveyor—I was one for some 35 years; I resigned when I left private practice—and my comments now, which will be brief, are entirely my own. Why do the Government want to interfere with an independent professional body? I do not believe that architects, civil engineers, solicitors, doctors, nurses or any of the other many noble...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (14th Day): Amendment 415 (22 Mai 2023)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Etherton, for identifying what I believe to be an unintended consequence in connection with the proposed forced auctions of high street property. I am pleased to add my name in support of Amendment 418. Following many years of practice as a chartered surveyor, specifically in the commercial property market, I am well aware that one...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (13th Day): Amendment 387 (18 Mai 2023)

Lord Thurlow: I thank the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson, for letting me add my name to his Amendment 471 concerning rights of way. I have never been able to understand why the Government wanted to apply a guillotine to registering long forgotten and rediscovered public rights of way. The noble Baroness, Lady Scott of Needham Market, made a number of interesting points but one in particular stood out for me. No...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (13th Day) (18 Mai 2023)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I add my voice to Amendments 332, 333 and 341 from the noble and learned Lord, Lord Etherton, concerning affordable housing, which lies at the root of the Government’s responsibility to their citizens. As we have just heard, it is the duty of government to provide safety and security to its citizens and a roof over their heads. That responsibility includes, at the very top of the...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (13th Day) (18 Mai 2023)

Lord Thurlow: In the absence of my noble and learned friend Lord Etherton, I will begin this debate with specific reference to Amendments 332, 333 and 341.

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (12th day) (Continued) ( 3 Mai 2023)

Lord Thurlow: My Lords, I want to make a brief comment on the subject of hope value, following the very interesting observations by a number of Peers. I fear there has been a bit of a misunderstanding about the concept. Market value for property is simply what someone will pay for it, no more and no less. If that happens to include a bit of a bet that there might be an uplift for a change of use or for a...
