New page on differences in leasehold law in Wales
A new page has been added to the LEASE website dedicated to highlighting the differences in residential leasehold law between England and Wales: http://www.lease-advice.org/publications/wales/
Anthony Essien, Chief Executive of LEASE, said “I met with the President of the Residential Property Tribunal Service for Wales and I was told that we could help those using the Welsh tribunal system if we publicised the differences in the law between England and Wales. I hope that this new page not only helps, but continues the dialogue with our Welsh customers about what else we can do to help them solve their leasehold problems. I hope they will get in touch.”
