The Leasehold & Freehold Reform Bill: Beyond the Headlines

Webinar recorded live on

Announced in The Kings Speech late last year, the Leasehold & Freehold Reform Bill promises to make long-term changes to homeownership for millions of leaseholders in England and Wales, with the central aim of making it easier and cheaper for leaseholders to extend their lease or buy the freehold.

The Bill is working its way through Parliament at speed, and reforms of this scale will affect everyone involved in property, including you and your business. It’s also a highly complicated area of law, with inevitable “winners and losers”, so it’s important to know and understand all the proposed changes ahead and learn what you can do to protect yourself and your clients.

Watch back this webinar with Paul Sams and Sarah Sams from Dutton Gregory Solicitors, who are experts in residential property, plot sales and social housing, you’ll gain:

• Better knowledge of everything the act proposes
• A deeper understanding of how this will affect you and your clients
• Key insights into the potential difficulties you will face
