LEASE advisers attended a number of Outreach events in the last quarter including those organised by Phoenix Housing (twice), Hackney Homes, Ealing Council, Islington Homes and others. LEASE advisers also provided advice at MP surgeries in England and Wales. Events typically include a brief presentation on particular aspects of leasehold – these can range from issues regarding service charges to how to do a lease extension. Advisers often also hold a surgery after the presentation so that leaseholders can raise their own particular issues.
If you would like LEASE to attend a leaseholders meeting or forum in your region or your block please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7383 9800. We look forward to hearing from you and helping with your leasehold issues.
