From LEASE: (www.lease-advice.org):
The UK’s first ever independent national survey of the country’s 4.1 million leaseholders, a ground-breaking survey developed by LEASE (www.lease-advice.org), has now been launched.
The survey has been developed in conjunction with property law firm Brady Solicitors, with the aim of assessing levels of satisfaction amongst the UK’s leaseholders and residents management company (RMC) directors. It is live online at www.bradysolicitors.com/survey2016 for leaseholders to contribute until the 31 March.
Leasehold properties are being built at a rate of close to 120,000 per year but currently there is no definitive understanding of what is desired – both in terms of the build of the property and the management services that are subsequently provided.
We urge all leaseholders, and RMC directors to have their say by taking part in this unique and important piece of research into the leasehold sector in England and Wales.
The research will provide valuable information for government ministers, and the industry’s regulatory bodies, and, importantly, will help the sector’s service providers, the managing agents, to understand how and where they need to improve, whilst assisting leaseholders to better understand their rights and responsibilities towards both their property and their fellow leaseholders.
