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" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/tackling-unfair-practices-in-the-leasehold-market</a>.</p><p>The 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>

The grant can contribute towards meeting the cost of adapting an older or disabled person’s property. The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 states that local authorities should approve or decline an application for a DFG as soon as reasonably practicable (and not later than with six months of being made). It is expected that local authorities should complete the works in a timely manner.</p><p>Since <a target="_blank">2012-13</a>, the Government has invested over £1.6 billion into the DFG, providing around 250,000 adaptations by the end of the <a target="_blank">2017-18</a> financial year. In the 2015 Spending Review, the DFG received year-on-year increases and will more than double from £220 million in <a target="_blank">2015-16</a> to over £500 million by 2020.</p><p>Liverpool was given £6,437,470 from the original DFG budget of £431 million for <a target="_blank">2017-18</a>. It will also be allocated a share of funding from the additional £42 million for the grant announced in Budget 2017, which will take the total amount to over £7 million. This additional funding is going to be paid out in January 2018.</p>
