We’ve had three other public meetings for the benefit of leaseholders:
- A meeting with the Leasehold Advisory Service in January 2015, minutes here
- A meeting with Metropolitan Leaseholder Services in April 2016, minutes here
- A meeting with the Leasehold Advisory Service in September 2019, minutes here. We had a follow up on the issues in June 2020

Nobody in the TRA is a property lawyer. We cannot give legal advice.
