I know that many constituents in Worsley & Eccles South have encountered difficulties when trying to purchase the Freehold of their property. Many people have discovered that the Freehold has been sold on to investors who are asking large sums of money for Leaseholders to buy the Freehold.
It has since become clear that there are many residents who were unaware that they had bought a Leasehold property. This is an issue that I am deeply concerned about. The practice of developers selling on the Freehold to investors appears to be a nationwide problem and one that clearly needs reform.
I would like to discover who and how many people in my constituency are affected by the problems with Leasehold ownership and if they have encountered difficulties as a result of the Leasehold agreement.
If you live in Worsley & Eccles South and are one of the households affected, I would be grateful if you could please complete the questionnaire below. Your name and address details are required and it would also be helpful if you could answer as many of the other questions as you can.
