star this property answer text <p>The Government is clear that unfair practices have no place in a modern housing market. That is why we are putting pressure on developers and freeholders to vary onerous lease terms, such as those with doubling ground rents. Some developers have introduced schemes to assist individuals which is welcome, but this support must be extended to include second hand buyers, and leaseholders proactively contacted. We are keeping a close eye on progress and will consider taking further action as necessary.</p><p>We are also working with the Law Commission to make it faster, fairer and cheaper for existing leaseholders to extend their lease or buy the freehold. In addition, we have worked with Trading Standards to ensure there is better information on redress, and they recently published guidance to help leaseholders understand where to go if things go wrong, and how they can access support.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Highways England is now responsible for the vast majority of the historic railways estate. This includes legacy bridges, abutments, tunnels, cuttings, viaducts and similar properties associated with closed railway lines, and sales. Network Rail is still responsible for a small proportion of disused railway lines which have been retained due to their close proximity or connection to currently operational railway lines. Network Rail’s records however do not distinguish between disused and operational railway lines, and therefore it is not possible to precisely indicate how much disused network they own.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The government is committed to sign and ratify the Withdrawal Agreement, which will allow for the Implementation Period until December 2020. During the Implementation Period, UK-based broadcasters will be free to broadcast to the EU with their Ofcom licence, and the government will be given an opportunity to negotiate the details of the future relationship between the EU and the UK.</p><p> </p><p>Broadcasting is not excluded or carved out of the political declaration, which is typically the case for trade agreements. Furthermore, the UK is a signatory to the Convention on Transfrontier Television which means that films and TV programmes made or produced in the UK will continue to have the status of European Works, which is of significant importance for industry.</p><p> </p><p>Ultimately, the future relationship with the EU on broadcasting, including on licensing arrangements, will depend on the exit negotiations. The UK is committed to seek the best possible arrangement for broadcasting that will work for UK businesses and audiences, and we will work closely with the sector to update them on any new developments. At the same time, the government will continue to do the responsible thing and prepare for all eventualities, including a no deal scenario.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Following productive discussions with the EU, a clear vision for the UK’s future relationship with the EU has been set out in the recent Political Declaration. This included an agreement that both parties will establish general principles, terms and conditions for the UK’s participation in future EU programmes in areas of shared interest, including in areas such as science and innovation, culture and education. The next generation of EU programmes are currently under negotiation in the EU. The Government will decide whether to participate in specific programmes in light of these negotiations and wider UK priorities.</p><p>Furthermore, under the terms of the proposed Withdrawal Agreement, UK entities' right to participate in EU programmes during the current Multiannual Financial Framework period, such as Horizon 2020 and Creative Europe, will be unaffected by the UK's withdrawal from the EU for the lifetime of projects financed by the current MFF. According to the Withdrawal Agreement, UK based organisations and individuals will be able to bid for funding, participate in and lead consortia, until programme closure.</p>

Music venues will only be eligible where they are similar in nature to those properties listed as eligible.</p><p> </p><p>This discount is part of Our Plan for the High Street, a £1.5bn support package.
