The Queen’s Speech 2021: four key property issues

Published: 19/05/2021

The UK government announced their plans for the next Parliamentary session in the Queen’s Speech on 11 May.
These include four key property issues:

1. Confirmation of leasehold reform via The Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Bill which will put an end to ground rents in new residential long leases in England.

2. Intention to establish a new regulator for building safety together with reforms to the building safety regime.

3. Announcement of a new Planning Bill which aims to simplify and speed up the planning process.

4. Plans to publish a Renters Reform White Paper this autumn for reform in the private rented sector with legislation to follow in due course.
