star this property answer text <p>For many years leasehold developments have existed with peppercorn ground rents. In line with usual practice, the government’s intention would be to publish an impact assessment on zero ground rents for future leases, as part of taking primary legislation through Parliament.</p><p>In addition, Lord Best’s working group advising government on the regulation of property agents, which reported on 18 July, proposed that government consider extending regulation to freeholders. We are carefully considering all the recommendations in the report and will announce next steps in due course.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The government’s aim is to increase local government’s retention of business rates from 50 per cent to 75 per cent in 2021-22. However, we recognise that redistribution of business rates between local authorities will continue to be necessary where locally retained business rates do not meet their needs.</p><p>We have listened to calls for a simpler, up-to-date, evidence-based funding formula and we will aim to deliver this alongside an increase in business rates retention. We are working closely with local government representatives to consider the drivers of local authorities’ costs, the resources available to them to fund services, and how to account for these in a way that draws a more transparent and understandable link between local circumstances and local authority funding.</p> more like this
