Councillors: Publication of Addresses - Question ( 8 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I do not think it is a requirement to live in that local authority area necessarily, but it is important that anything on the register is correct. Obviously, there are ways of looking into that. The other interesting thing is that you can opt in or opt out. Some people like to opt in—they really want their names to be there—and therefore any legislation needs to give the opportunity for...

Councillors: Publication of Addresses - Question ( 8 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The noble Lord is absolutely right. We cannot have intimidation stopping people wanting to be elected to represent their communities at whatever level—it is important even at parish council level. What more can we do? We can look for legislative time to change it, but, in the meantime, we are doing everything we can. We have put in £31 million more this year to bolster security for elected...

In addition to unsafe cladding, relevant defects may include but are not limited to: compartmentation between dwellings or...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Buildings: Fire Prevention ( 8 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: Interested parties including freeholders, leaseholders, commonhold associations or enfranchised leaseholders can potentially look to pursue a previous freeholder, developer and any associated company or person for remediation costs through a remediation contribution order. They also have the potential to pursue developers, contractors, or manufacturers where they are liable for defects which...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: High Rise Flats: Insulation ( 3 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: Developers that signed the developer remediation contract are required to assess and remediate relevant buildings as soon as reasonably practicable. The length of time it may reasonably take to assess and remediate a building will vary depending on factors including the scale of works required, co-operation of third parties in granting access to the building and finalising a works contract,...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: High Rise Flats: Insulation ( 3 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The Department does not hold information on the impact of construction defects, relating to fire safety, on the asset value of whole buildings. However, I refer the Earl of Lytton to the answer given to Question UIN 22129 On 24 April 2024 on the selling price of individual flats. UIN 22129 (pdf, 61.4KB)

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I thank the noble Lord, Lord Best, for his Amendment 94, and for his and other noble Lords’ persistence in pushing for the creation of a new regulatory body to oversee property agents. I put on record my sincere thanks to him for his valuable work on regulation over very many years. I note that he is also a member of the Industry and Regulators Committee, which recently concluded that the...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 93B ( 1 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, that is an interesting and very legal point. Rather than speaking off the top of my head, I would like to get it right and write to the noble Lord. I move to Amendments 96, 97, 99 and 100. I thank my noble friend Lord Young of Cookham for these amendments. Amendments 96 and 99 would extend the leaseholder protections to buildings under 11 metres and to collectively owned leaseholder...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 93B ( 1 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, I first add my tribute to Andrew, Lord Stunell. I have sat opposite him for many hours in this Chamber and in Committee, being challenged by him in a detailed but always good-humoured way. I am going to miss him. I did not know where he was this week to begin with, and I asked questions. He will be sorely missed, particularly on the issues that we talk about as a group of Peers. I...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Local Government: Audit ( 1 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The Government has been clear that the significant backlog of local audits in England is unacceptable. It is taking action to deal with this backlog and put the system on a sustainable footing. On 8 February DLUHC, with local audit system organisations, issued a Joint Statement setting out a clear package of measures to meet these challenges, alongside the launch of DLUHC and National Audit...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 85 (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Fox of Buckley, for her Amendment 85, which seeks to commit a Minister of the Crown to publishing a report assessing the state of the UK’s retirement leasehold sector within one year of the passing of this Act. The Government recognise that leaseholders make up a significant proportion of the retirement sector, and are committed to ensuring that...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 82C (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I thank noble Lords for their various amendments on building safety and for the debate. I will respond to the amendments in turn. I thank the noble Earl, Lord Lytton, for his amendments relating to a building trustee. Amendment 82C requires some buildings to have a building trustee, while Amendments 82D to 82M cover the process of appointment, duties, rights to information and how these...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: We debated ground rents last week, and I do not have anything to add. If there are any changes to the Bill, we will give sufficient time for all noble Lords to consider them. Amendment 66 agreed. Amendment 67 not moved.

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, I apologise in advance for the length of my response. This is a large group so I might go on for quite a long time. I apologise for that, but I think it is important that I respond to all the amendments. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Khan of Burnley, who spoke to the amendments from the noble Baroness, Lady Taylor. Amendment 67 seeks to give the right to challenge the reasonableness...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, I will now speak to Amendments 66, 68 and 70 in my name. I start by noting that I fully recognise the challenges facing leaseholders, with rising service charges caused by the increased costs in managing and maintaining buildings. The Government are clear, however, that any increase in charges must always be reasonable. We also recognise that the existing statutory protections...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 64 (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, I thank noble Lords for their various amendments on the freehold estates and for the thoughtful debate. Amendments 86 and 87 tabled by the noble Baronesses, Lady Thornhill and Lady Taylor of Stevenage, seek to prevent costs being passed over to home owners. Amendment 87 from the noble Baroness, Lady Taylor, seeks to prevent home owners having to pay any contribution towards the...
