LEASE, The Leasehold Advisory Service, is a Non Departmental Public Body (NDPB) funded by Government to provide free legal advice to leaseholders, landlords, professional advisers, managers and others on the law affecting residential leasehold in England and Wales.
LEASE is funded by -
We can provide advice by telephone, by letter or email, or in person at the office; we can arrange seminars and group meetings where large numbers of leaseholders want to discuss a joint issue. We publish a wide range of free advice notes.
Lease Conferences Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of LEASE, provides various paid services. All revenue earned from these services is used to help support LEASE's core free front-line advice service.
Non-professionals in the leasehold sector interested in the content of paid services after the event should apply to the Chief Executive.
Leasehold advisers are available for telephone advice from 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday.
If you would like to write to us please include a day-time telephone number in your email or letter.
If you would like to come to our office for face to face advice, please telephone 020 7383 9800 to request an appointment. Before an appointment is agreed an adviser will discuss your query with you by telephone, to determine whether it would be best addressed by a face to face meeting. This is because of the high demand for advice. Please bring all relevant documents (for example, the lease) with you. If in doubt ask the adviser what you need to bring.
