Reform Enfranchisement Law Campaign

Campaign for CLTs to be exempt from leasehold enfranchisement

Why does it matter?

Because of these leasehold enfranchisement rights, the CLT cannot protect the long-term ownership of the land.

Landowners, be they private or public, are unlikely to make land available for CLTs or Local Housing Trusts because they risk losing the land asset

It is a major barrier to securing finance for CLTs because funders and investors want long-term   investments and long term returns from investing in CLTs.
