Management: Car park perils 2

Nicholas B contacted us about a problem he was having with car parking. A neighbour was parking in front of his garage, and the management company was refusing to enforce the parking restrictions.

He said, “The advice I got from LEASE really cut through to the heart of the parking dispute I had with a neighbour – and more importantly the management company who were blatantly disregarding the situation.”

“Their advice gave me the legal perspective with great precision – but more importantly the practical way to go about getting what I ultimately wanted from my parking rights being unambiguously violated.”

“The interface between the legal and the practical was their phenomenal help desk staff – who to my complete amazement was a REAL lawyer!”

“I can’t explain the time and grief – and cost – that the LEASE has saved me in two simple phone calls. Thanks very much to LEASE!”
