Leasehold Advisory Service (LEASE)

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. It is funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and the Welsh Government.

LEASE can provide advice by telephone, by letter or email, or in person at its office in London. Advisers are available for telephone advice from 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday.

LEASE ADVICE LINE – 020 7832 2500

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 7832 2500 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.

LEASE is based at Fleetbank House, 2-6 Salisbury Square, London, EC4Y 8JX.
