Scrap the qualifying time of 2 years ownership for lease extension

The Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993  is legislation which provides an opportunity for an additional term of 90 years,  plus the present unexpired term.

To be a Qualifying leaseholder you must own a ‘long lease’, and have owned it for the past two years and not be a business or commercial tenant.  You do not need to have lived in the property for this period, merely owned the lease for two years or more.

The clause of the Law that requires this qualification can be easily scrapped.

Scrap the limit of 10 minute GP appointment

Surgeries have a limit of 10 minutes per appointment which may be OK for certain cases but for other critical cases it is insufficient and may have to be extended.

This 10 minute appointment limit with GP should be ended and replaced with the GP's recommendation of length for appointment  according to the case.
