Summary of Service

The clinic offers a free, reliable service to those with legal difficulties involving residential, long leasehold property (i.e. greater than five years), for example, service charge disputes, issues concerning major building works, management concerns, lease interpretation, administration charges and rent reviews. The service is offered by the University of Law in association with volunteer lawyers from specialist property firms in the local area. All students from the University of Law are supervised by qualified University staff and the lawyers involved in the project. If you are offered an appointment (these will take place remotely), you will be asked to send copies of all the relevant documents in relation to your matter. At the appointment, the volunteer solicitor will go through your matter and will provide you with appropriate advice. An advice letter is sent out within two weeks from the date of the appointment.
