star this property answer text <p>The government remains committed to promoting fairness and transparency for homeowners and ensuring that consumers are protected from abuse and poor service</p><p>We have set out a strong package of measures to tackle unfair practices in the leasehold market. This includes a commitment to bring forward legislation to ban the unjustified use of leasehold for new houses, reducing future ground rents to zero financial value, and introducing new rights to challenge fees for freeholders on private and mixed tenure estates. We are also working with the Law Commission to make buying a freehold or extending a lease easier, faster, fairer and cheaper, as well as reinvigorating Commonhold and making Right to Manage easier, to provide greater choice for consumers</p><p>The government is also working to ensure charges related to leasehold properties are transparent and communicated effectively and that there is a clear route to challenge or redress if things go wrong. Last October we established an independent working group chaired by Lord Best to raise standards across the property sector, which also considered how fees such as service charges should be presented to consumers. The working group published its final report to government on 18 July. We are considering the report’s recommendations and will announce next steps in due course.</p><p>We remain committed to legislating on leasehold reform as soon as parliamentary time allows.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The government is committed to rebalancing the relationship between tenants and landlords to deliver a fairer, good quality and more affordable private rented sector.</p><p>In April this year the government announced that it proposes to consult on the future of Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988. This would provide tenants with more stability, protecting them from having to make frequent moves at short notice, empowering them to challenge poor property standards and enabling them to put down roots and plan for the future. Our consultation on how the new system should operate closed on 12 October. We are now carefully considering the responses received and will publish our response in due course.</p><p>In January 2019, the government committed – in response to the <em>Strengthening consumer redress in housing </em>consultation – to requiring all private landlords to belong to a redress scheme, so that all tenants have access to redress when things go wrong. This will require primary legislation, which will be introduced at the earliest appropriate opportunity</p><p><br>The government will also shortly lay regulations to introduce mandatory five yearly safety inspections and tests on electrical installations in private rented sector properties.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>We recognise the challenges that the cold weather poses for those who are sleeping rough. Last month, we launched a second year of the Cold Weather Fund, doubling its funding. This £10 million fund will be available to all local authorities in England to provide a robust, local response to support as many rough sleepers as possible off the streets during the winter period.</p><p>In periods of severe weather, Severe Weather Emergency Provision (SWEP) is triggered and local authorities work closely with charities to provide basic emergency accommodation to minimise the risk of harm to individuals who are sleeping rough when the temperature drops. Many local authorities will already make sure warm places to stay are available throughout the winter, not just during times when SWEP is in force.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>My colleagues and I meet regularly with counterparts across government, including colleagues from the Department for Education (DfE), to discuss a range of policies and programmes. Next year’s settlement for local government recognises the critical role councils play, and responds to the pressures they face, by providing access to the largest year-on-year increase in Core Spending Power (CSP) in over a decade. Under our proposals, CSP is expected to rise from £46.2 billion to £49.1 billion in 2020-21; an estimated increase of 4.3 per cent in real terms. These resources are largely unringfenced and therefore available for local authorities to spend in line with their local priorities.</p><p>DfE has also recently announced an increase of £780 million in 2020-21 to their high needs budget, which pays for children and young people with complex special educational needs and disabilities. This will bring the high needs budget to over £7 billion, with every local authority seeing a minimum funding increase of 8 per cent per person aged 2-18 years old.</p>
