This petition calls for the Government to Extend the Leasehold Reform Act to ground rent on existing residential leases.
Prior to the Leasehold Reform Act, the freeholders could set ground rent at whatever amount they chose. New protections do not extend to existing property owners. Many current leaseholders have found they are unable to sell as mortgage firms and banks may not approve lending on such properties.
The distinction between new leases and old leases puts current owners at a competitive disadvantage
