The Government remains committed to creating a fair and just housing system that works for everyone. We have already made great strides with the Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Act 2022, which will come into force from 30 June 2022. This Act is the first part of major two-part legislation this parliament to implement leasehold and commonhold reforms. In the next parliamentary session we will legislate to reform the leasehold system, including by supercharging leaseholders' ability to buy their freeholds, helping millions of households genuinely to own their own home.
