ARCH has been asked to draw members' attention to a survey
considering councils' experiences in dealing with leaseholders when
refurbishing blocks of flats. The survey is being carried out
by Professor Susan Bright of the Oxford University Faculty of Law,
working with David Weatherall of the Energy Saving Trust.
The survey is part of research aiming to develop practical and
policy recommendations that would make it easier for social housing
providers to proceed with essential energy-related refurbishments
including how property law in England and Wales could be reformed
to remove barriers to energy upgrades in blocks of flats.
Complete the survey.
