||<p>The Government's consultation 'Tackling unfair practices in the leasehold market'
ran for eight weeks from 25 July to 19 September 2017. The consultation received 6,075
responses; 5,701 via an online survey and 374 via email and post. Of those responding
to the online survey providing background information, 5,336 respondents said they
were private individuals, of which 2,790 answered a follow up question confirming
they were a leaseholder living in a house, with 1,699 confirming they were a leaseholder
living in a flat and 431 identifying themselves as a freeholder. 332 respondents identified
themselves as replying to the consultation on behalf of an organisation.</p><p>A full
breakdown of responses by type and question can be found at Annex A of the Government
response, published on 21 December 2017 available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/tackling-unfair-practices-in-the-leasehold-market"
Government also ran a separate technical consultation, ‘Implementing reforms to the
leasehold system’ during 15 October 2018 to 26 November 2018, and is still analysing
the responses. As part of our consultation questions we did not ask the respondent
to identify whether they were a leaseholder. However, we received 1030 responses which
were completed as personal views.</p>
