Motion text

That this House condemns Estates & Management Ltd of Ballards Lane, London for charging an administration charge of ú225 to collect an arrears of ú6.30 annual ground rent; notes that other freeholders try to overcharge Burnley leaseholders with long term leases (999 years), low ground rents and minimal conditions by trying to enforce insurance conditions which do not exist in all the leasehold documents, or charging substantial retrospective fees for approving alterations or improvements made to properties; and calls upon the Government to legislate to stop these malpractices.
