Rhoda K wrote to us with her story about how LEASE had helped her.

“I live in a Victorian building which has been converted into flats. We received a surveyor’s report and a demand from our freeholder for a very large sum of money to be spent on resurfacing the car park. We had had no notice of this. I telephoned LEASE and was very pleased to have a solicitor speak to me about the problem in detail and without rushing me.
“She said that a freeholder could demand money for necessary repair and maintenance, but not for an improvement. I called a meeting of the other leaseholders, and we came up with several points to show that this was an improvement. I wrote a long and detailed letter, which everyone signed, and a few days later we received a letter stating that “the works have been aborted.” I am very grateful to your service for saving me so much money.”
