A raft of property legislation to be enacted during the coming parliament has been revealed during the Queen’s Speech.


This includes modernising the planning system to enable more homes to be built, more help for first time buyers, and a promise to ‘enhance the rights of those who rent’, a reference to the yet-to-be introduced Renters Reform Bill.


Her Majesty also said that the practice of excessive ground rent increases by freeholders would be banned for new leasehold properties, a promise Boris Johnson had already outlined earlier this year.
