ABOUT US

Dermot Mckibbin has set up this site.It  is intended to promote discussion and raise awareness amongst progressive opinion about the need for reform of the medieval leasehold system in England and Wales. The leasehold tenure has been abolished in nearly all the English-speaking world including Scotland. The site will occasionally cover other housing issues.

Dermot believes that the solution to the injustices of the leasehold system is to adopt the Commonhold Tenure. This would allow people to manage blocks of flats in accordance with their wishes. The leasehold system needs to be abolished and not just polished up at the edges.
