About LEASE’s Fire Safety service

Our services

LEASE provides FREE initial advice on fire safety to leaseholders in high-rise buildings, including those with ACM cladding, to ensure that leaseholders are aware of their rights and are supported to understand the terms of their leases.

If you have a question or concern about fire safety in leasehold, please see the frequently asked questions below. You can also get free advice from our experienced advisers, by booking a telephone appointment, or by writing to us.

If you are a leaseholder with fire safety concerns we encourage you to complete this survey. The information you provide will be passed on to the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government, to assist them in determining the necessary response to fire safety issues and concerns. You may be contacted for a follow up. The Government are keen to hear from leaseholders for their views on this important issue.

We are here to:

  • Give free, independent, impartial information and guidance on fire safety
    • Advice by telephone, email and post is initial advice. This is outline, summary, legal advice to ensure you understand your rights. We will help you better engage on fire safety issues, such as interim and remedial fire safety costs. We cannot act for you. If you need other assistance, we will guide you to where you should go next.
    • Advice and information by ‘outreach’. If there are 20 or more leaseholders in your building, then an outreach event may be the most efficient way for us to assist. We can speak to the group about a particular point of concern and/or have an advice surgery for individuals to obtain personal advice.Please use our event form to arrange an event close to you. We can also hold events by Skype, conference call, or webinar.
