The Queen’s speech – Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent Bill)

Commentary by Scott Goldstein, Partner in the Dispute Resolution department and property litigation specialist at Payne Hicks Beach, on one of the new pieces of legislation in the Queen’s speech – the Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent Bill). It appears to apply only to new, long residential leaseholds, however, Scott comments all may not be lost for existing leaseholders.

Scott has extensive experience in all aspects of property litigation and is able to bring a wide range of technical knowhow and commercial nous to bear on any property dispute, be it commercial or residential advising developer and high net worth clients. His expertise extends to dealing with landlord and tenant work: on the commercial side involving the applicability of the criteria for opposing a new business tenancy on the grounds of redevelopment (ground (f)) and for residential tenancies dealing with long leases in connection with enfranchisement claims, service charge disputes and disputes between tenant directors of freehold companies.
