New Deal for Leaseholders Campaign

Thousands of leaseholders across Tower Hamlets have been sent bills for as much as £40,000 for works to their properties which Tower Hamlets Homes – the Arms Length Management Organisation responsible for the properties – has insisted are paid within twelve months. For huge numbers of residents, these bills are simply unmanageable in such a short space of time.

Rushanara Ali MP and Jim Fitzpatrick MP have launched a campaign urging Tower Hamlets Homes and the Council to secure a new deal for leaseholders.The campaign has three main demands of Tower Hamlets Homes and Tower Hamlets Council.

  1. Extend the current repayment period for major works from 12 months to 10 years

  2. Provide greater transparency on charges and proposed future works

  3. Adopt a pro-active approach when engaging, consulting and responding to leaseholders
