Meeting 8 November with Leasehold Reform Stake Holders

The request was partially successful.

Dear Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government,

As a recent purchaser of a new build, leasehold house, who were duped by Barratt Homes into thinking we could easily and quickly purchase our freehold for a fair price, I would like to request information regarding this meeting. The developer went out of their way to mislead us into thinking they would be our landlord until we purchased the freehold, however, they were party to a "prior land agreement" kept secret from us and now our freehold is four times the price we were told by their sales representative.

I would like to receive confirmation that Barratt Homes management attended the meeting. I would like the minutes of the meeting published for all concerned with this issue to be able to see and understand the new Secretary of State for Housing's approach and his motivation behind proposed reform, especially retrospectively for recent leasehold house owners.

Yours faithfully,

Jonathan Poulter
