End of Custody Supervised Licence Scheme: Extension - Commons Urgent Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: My Lords, has any assessment been made of the impact of prisons being so full and there being such a long backlog in court? One of the biggest drivers of crime in the poorest communities in this country is the idea that you will get away with it. I have been speaking to a number of people at street level who are saying that the jails are too full to send anybody there, which they say is a...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 84 (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: Is my noble friend the Minister comfortable that that information is freely distributed? It would take only a very cursory conversation with leaseholders to find out that they know nothing of most of leasehold law—anything from ground rent to the fact that your service charge can be changed from underneath you. That means that the information that is there has clearly not been absorbed....

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 79 (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 79 withdrawn. Clause 57 agreed. Amendment 80 not moved. Clause 58 agreed. Amendments 80A and 80B not moved. Clause 59 agreed. Clause 60: Limits on rights of landlords to claim litigation costs from tenants Amendments 81 to 82 not moved. Clause 60 agreed. Clause 61: Right of tenants to claim litigation costs from landlords Amendments 82A and 82B...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 79 (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: I beg to move. Excuse me—I am dyslexic, and procedure is massively hard for me. One day I will get it all right—and all at the same time.

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 76A (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: In regard to the cost of leaseholders bringing a case, people are now using modern technology, such as crowdsourcing, to raise the funds to take on a landlord. When you have a persistently rogue landlord, this could be your last roll of the dice. It is not an entirely strong argument to talk about leaseholders not having the means; that is often the case, and what most of the discussion has...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 76A (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 76A withdrawn. Amendment 77 not moved. Clause 56 agreed. Amendments 78 to 78J not moved. Clause 57: Limitation on ability of landlord to charge insurance costs

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 79 (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: A lot of the Bill relies on secondary legislation coming through at a later date, meaning that we must all wait for many of the details of individual policies and cannot fully scrutinise them now. Last week we heard from the Minister that the commencement will be in 2025-26. In January last year, the Secretary of State, Michael Gove, announced his intention to ban freeholder and managing...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 76A (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: At Second Reading, I said that leaseholders should not be expected to become serial litigators in the same manner that the sub-postmasters had to in order to get some justice for themselves. We should seek to increase the rights of leaseholders, not strip them of existing rights and protections. My amendment seeks to preserve the criminal sanctions against landlords withholding critical...

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

Lord Bailey of Paddington: My Lords, my main focus so far has been boosting leaseholder control over service charges by removing barriers to the right to manage. However, we must dramatically reform the law for leaseholders who cannot gain this control and who wish to stand up to their freeholder on service charges. It is positive that the Government are enforcing service charge transparency and disclosure with the new...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 60 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: I have heard what my noble friend the Minister has had to say and I am minded to do as she asks—if I could get one of those meetings that she has to offer. I am sure then that we could come to an accommodation.

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 60 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: My Lords, it was not that I do not like transparency. I agree with my noble friend that transparency is very useful so you know whether you are being ripped off. I was making an appeal for the ability to intervene in the process of being ripped off. I have been on the other end of this situation, where people have quite happily told us what they are overcharging us for, but we had no...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 60 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: My Lords, I will speak to my Amendments 65A and 65B. The Government should be applauded for their ambitions as laid out in the Bill. Let us hope that we can achieve them all. I put on record that I am pleased with the Government’s direction of travel, because some of my interventions up until now may have seemed slightly belligerent, but can my noble friend the Minister provide some...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: I support this amendment. Although in his intervention the noble Lord talked about how to control peoples’ behaviour when they have misbehaved and breached their lease, it should be taken into account that the threat of forfeiture is held over leaseholders, in a very draconian fashion, for the smallest infraction. More importantly, it is used to enforce such things as the flagrant and...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: There are ways and means within our court system to reclaim any money that may be owed to the freeholder for service charges, ground rent and so on. Let us be very clear that forfeiture is used as a tool to threaten, bully and cajole leaseholders into compliance. When your freeholder invents a new reason as to why you have to pay more, you are warned that, if you do not do so, you could be...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: It would be extraordinary, though possible, if fellow leaseholders could invoke forfeiture but the freeholder could not. That would be incredible, and I am sure it would have all its own problems. The point remains that, if you keep some kind of forfeiture, freeholders will want to keep hold of that power, because it is exactly that: an unfettered, threatening power, which leaseholders speak...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: The number of cases will not indicate the use of forfeiture, because forfeiture is wielded as a fiery dragon. Leaseholders speak about it as the dog that bites. The number of cases may be small, but I would argue that the use of forfeiture is probably far greater.

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

Lord Bailey of Paddington: My Lords, I want to pay tribute to Campden Charities, as I am a beneficiary of the activities of Campden Charities. I came from a community where the likelihood of one of us appearing in the Lords was next to zero, and Campden Charities is an important part of my arrival in your Lordships’ House. I point out that removing the ability of charities countrywide to provide such services would...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 13 (22 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: Maybe my noble friend the Minister can give us some detail on the Government’s new-found support for commonhold. It would be easier not to move my amendment if I had some idea of the progress of the Government’s thinking, the timetable and how they intend to increase the adoption of commonhold, because that would make my amendment largely unnecessary.

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 12 (22 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: Can my noble friend the Minister let me know how many of the 121 recommendations that the Law Commission made around commonhold will be adopted?

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 12 (22 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bailey of Paddington: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Taylor of Stevenage. I do not want to rehearse the reasons why I think that a mandatory share of the freehold is necessary, in the way that the noble Baroness laid out. I want to speak more to the contact that I have had with so many different groups and individuals who feel that they are trapped in their leasehold. The number one...
