The rent-charge / leasehold saga grinds on. 

Labour MP Justin Madders welcomes some of the proposals being tabled but rightly asks about those homeowners who have already been saddled with these difficult-to-sell leases. 

He is proposing a compensation fund similar to PPI. 

Banks have already paid out £28bn under the PPI scheme since 2011 which is a truly extraordinary sum. 

I doubt the leasehold "scam" - to use Madder's frank term - will hit these levels but watch this space. 

All to play for and I have no doubt there will be many nervous players in the property sector right now.
