David L owns a flat with a share of the freehold in Enfield, Middlesex. He is one of the managers of the block of twenty flats. Mr L recently heard that another nearby block was including certain notices when they wrote to leaseholders about service charges. Mr L contacted LEASE to find out if the managers of his block should also be including these notices.

The LEASE adviser confirmed that any service charge demand or reminder letter must be accompanied by a formal summary of rights and obligations. Mr L was also referred to the appropriate section of the advice guide “Service Charges and other issues”.

Mr L said that LEASE was “a great and extremely useful service to the many thousands of us leaseholders out there”.
