A book on public sector leasehold management has been published by two senior London council officers.
Managing Local Authority Leaseholds: A Good Practice Guide was written by Islington Council's compulsory competitive tendering (CCT) development manager Steve Michaux and Mark Baptist, who manages a neighbourhood office in one of Lewisham Council's CCT contract areas.
The book, published by the London Housing Unit, which represents 19 London boroughs, looks in detail at the legal requirements councils must fulfil when managing their leaseholders.
Around 100,000 council homes have been sold on long leases and the authors say that managing the stock can be difficult.
The publication, which includes case studies, also contains advice on the new 1996 Housing Act.
