Leaseholders need some free leasehold assistance?

Background

Leaseholders on the Alton Estate have been highlighting some various concerns in various meetings. For instance:

  1. At the Let’s Talk event held earlier in the year there was a mention regarding over whose responsibility it was for the door frame when discussing fire doors (with one gentleman claiming to have an email from the Council suggesting that they had the responsibility for the door frame?).
  2. Another example is that some residents have had double glazing installed for their property and the Council is going to install double glazing for the whole block and there are concerns over how the charge will impact them in this situation.

Related to these and other examples some leaseholders have been keen to seek advice though have little idea of who to go to. In this instance, one possible option is The Leasehold Advisory Service (LEASE). Note this is not an endorsement for rather, some leaseholders have used their service and have suggested that they might be good place to start for any queries. For instance, they provided feedback regarding the retro fitting of water sprinklers – https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2018/08/10/feedback-from-lease-regarding-retro-fitting-water-sprinklers/
