Plans to ban leaseholds on new-build homes in England - BBC News
Traditionally houses have nearly always been sold as freehold properties, meaning the buyer owns the building and land it is built on outright. [leasholde enables to 1 artificially lower price w the intention to jack up later bc leasehold enables you to do that. ludicrous to think to actually buy house but not own the land it sits on. this leasehold practice is not even the tip of the iceberg of the housing crisis and bubble territory. the tip of the iceberg has to be regulation and consumer rights/protections. shoddy builds for outrageous amounts of money. anybody remember Grenfell tower? ] MPs have described the situation as a "national scandal" and the "PPI of the housebuilding industry".
