Leaseholder task and finish consultation

We recently established a special working group consisting of leaseholders, officers and professional experts to explore leaseholders’ concerns  about major works on estates.

In total, the group met five times between January and April 2014 to discuss the key issues that leaseholders had in relation to major works. These included: perceived poor value for money, lack of contractor monitoring, standard of communications with leaseholders and how works are procured. The group have written a report which identified where  improvements could be made.

We would like your comments on the report (pdf) 294KB and, specifically, on the recommendations* in the report appendices [pdf] 135KB.

The Report will also be discussed at Area Leaseholder Forums on:

Thursday 15 May: Brixton Area Leaseholder Forum, Room 5, Hambrook House, Porden Road, SW2 5RW

Wednesday 28 May: Stockwell and Vassall Leaseholder Forum, Mursell Hall, Portland Grove, SW8 1JE 

Thursday 29 May: Clapham Area Leaseholder Forum, Clapham Methodist Church, Nelsons Row, SW4 7JR

All forums start at 7pm with a surgery for individual leaseholder issues from 6pm.

A copy of the report is available at all Area Housing Offices and Hambrook House.

Please note that the deadline for comments on this report is Friday 30 May.
