Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 5 (22 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I am not aware of the timescale for that, but I will make some inquiries and come back to my noble friend.

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 5 (22 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Taylor of Stevenage, for Amendments 5, 6, 9, 10 and 11. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Khan, for speaking to those amendments to Part 2 of Schedule 1. These amendments would remove exemptions to the ban on the grant of new leases on houses. As I stated when addressing Amendments 1 to 4, the Government are aware that certain housing or financial...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I have noted that. The noble Baronesses, Lady Pinnock and Lady Taylor, and the noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham, also brought up the issue of the exempting of retirement houses. Retirement houses do not stand alone; they are usually part of a wider scheme with extensive communal facilities and packages of support care and hospitality services. A lease can help to organise the relationship...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I am not prepared to give any ballpark figures from the Dispatch Box, but I will look into it and let the noble Baroness know. I apologise that I do not have that figure with me today. Before I finish on this group, I have government Amendment 8, which makes minor clarificatory changes to the definition of shared ownership leases permitted under the leasehold house ban to clarify its intent....

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: We have been working with the stakeholders for many months, if not years, on this. If the noble Earl looks in the schedule of exemptions, I think he will find everybody that wanted to be there. We have agreed to put them there, but if he has any particular group in mind, I would like to hear about it, please. Government Amendment 8 is also relevant to the following group of amendments, so...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, it gives me great pleasure to open Committee on the Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill. Before turning to the debate on the amendments that have been tabled, it would be remiss of me if I did not take this opportunity to thank those Peers who have engaged with the Bill and those who have long championed the rights of leaseholders. I also thank colleagues from the Law Commission,...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, it is a pleasure to close this debate and to reflect on the many thoughtful contributions that we have heard.

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: As I think I have said to the noble Lord many times from this Dispatch Box, this is a complicated issue. I think there are about 121 recommendations in the Law Commission’s framework and we just have not had the time to go through them. However, this takes us a good way towards commonhold for the future. The Law Commission did fantastic work to review the commonhold framework, and, as I...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: We have taken the issue of human life as the important one. I think we will have further debates on 11 metres as we go through the Bill. I am conscious of time; if the noble Earl does not mind, we will deal with those matters in Committee. Given the number of small buildings under 11 metres that need remediation, our assessment remains that extending leaseholder protections to below 11 metres...
