NDM6681 Hefin David (Caerphilly)
To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
1. Notes a proposal for a Bill on the regulation of estate management companies.
2. The purpose of this Bill would be to:
a) give freeholders who pay charges for the maintenance of communal areas and facilities on a private or mixed-use estate equivalent rights as leaseholders to challenge the reasonableness of service charges;
b) ensure that, where a freeholder pays a rent charge, the rent charge owner is not able to take possession or grant a lease on the property where the rent charge remains unpaid for a short period of time; and
c) give freeholders in Wales equivalent rights to those in England as a result of changes to the regulation of estate management companies planned by the UK Government.
