On Wednesday 1st February 2017 Neil Newstead attended the 15th annual Lease conference in London along with Rachel Evans, Molly Griffin and Emily Gillam of our Block Management team.

Attended by professionals of the block management industry as well as many Leaseholders, the Conference was a great success, it was held at etc. Venues at County Hall on London’s South Bank.

The day’s events included a key announcement from Housing Minister Gavin Barwell on the future role of Lease as a service for Leaseholders and Lord Neuberger’s keynote speech on Lease interpretation and his views on the perception of the judiciary.

The day was broken up into a series of breakout sessions focusing on key aspects of Leasehold management. We attended the ones on property management which covered sharing practice, private and public new mixed tenure, case law update and Section 20 FTT Foundling Court v Camden.

We are already looking forward to returning next year.
