New duty advice scheme at the London LVT

Yesterday the Leasehold Advisory Service (LEASE) announced in a press release that it would be operating a morning duty advice scheme at the London offices of the LVT from 21 September 2010. This news follows hot foot on the announcement that from 16 September 2010, LEASE’s phone advice line will open at 9:00am — half an hour earlier than the existing time of 9:30am — and will open late (until 8pm) on Mondays.

One hopes this is all because the money saved from withdrawing funding for advice on commonhold is being put to good use. On the whole a more positive story then, though advising on leasehold disputes as a duty will be fairly challenging.

    A small correction: the LEASE phone lines will be open from 0900 from 16th September, not 0930 as stated in the post.

    Ooops. I meant that they are half an hour earlier than the existing time of 9:30am, but that got muddled in an edit. Hopefully corrected by now.
