The so-called 'leasehold scandal' has affected leaseholders up and down the country, but people struggling with leasehold issues in Newcastle will be offered free specialist advice at an event on Wednesday 4 July.
The free-to-attend event, which takes place at the Royal Station Hotel in Neville Street on Wednesday 4 July 2018 from 1pm to 6pm, will offer specialist advice to owners of flats and leasehold houses and those keen to understand their rights before purchasing such a property.
The Leasehold Roadshow will be delivered by Louie Burns, Managing Director of Leasehold Solutions, a well-known and passionate speaker and advocate for the rights of leaseholders, together with experts from Leasehold Valuers and Leasehold Law. Louie is an active member of the National Leasehold Campaign and is in consultation with government on the injustices of leasehold.
Louie said: “Leasehold is a complex area and it can be very difficult for property owners to get access to the information they need to protect themselves and their interests. That's why we're bringing the Leasehold Roadshow to Newcastle, to provide the owners of leasehold flats and houses with free, honest and impartial advice to help them take back control of their property.
"We see so many cases where leaseholders get exploited by unscrupulous freeholders, who unfairly raise ground rent and service charges, or offer informal lease extensions, which convey no legal protection whatsoever.
"The Government has made plenty of noise about its intentions to reform the leasehold sector, but that's left many leasehold property owners confused about their options and wondering whether they should act now or wait for new legislation. Our Roadshow will provide leaseholders with expert guidance so they can make informed decisions."
A series of seminars will address the key issues in leasehold enfranchisement, including lease extensions, purchasing the property's freehold and the implications of the leasehold house scandal. Due to popular demand, Leasehold Solutions will be running free advice sessions with project managers, legal and valuation experts to provide one-to-one advice.
Louie continued: “Attending these presentations is a must for owners of flats or leasehold houses. We will cover a range of key issues during the event, whilst providing crucial information and insights, with plenty of opportunity for questions.
"As well as the seminars, we're also running free one-to-one sessions with our project management, legal and valuation experts. These popular half hour consultations will run alongside our informative seminar presentations and give leaseholders the chance to discuss the specifics of their own lease arrangements in detail.” Places are limited and must be booked in advance.
