LEASE provides FREE initial advice to members of the public on residential long leasehold and park homes law. We can help if your enquiry is about a flat or leasehold house with a lease longer than 21 years or park homes.
LEASE is not able to advise on:
- assured or assured shorthold tenancies (eg, if rent is paid weekly or monthly)
- commercial leases (a shop or other business)
Leasehold professionals such as lawyers, managing agents, surveyors, estate agents, developers etc can also access advice by paying a fee and booking an advice session.
