No new leaseholds

All new-build houses will be sold as freehold and not leasehold, the government announced on 27 June 2019.

Other changes announced on the same day include plans to:

  • reduce ground rents for new leases to zero
  • for tenants wishing to sell their home, introduce a new compliance time limit on the landlord of 15 working days and a maximum fee of £200. [19.06]
