This is a really helpful book to all laymen.
I have been in law all my life and cannot stress enough how the author has made this book so easy to follow and understand your own Lease!
Will definitely be recommending this!
This really is a great book to help leaseholders understand their lease and the obligations within it. I found the information concise and easy to understand without unnecessary legal jargon. I liked the ‘recommended action’ box at the end of each chapter too. The content is up to date and relevant and I would recommend this book to any leaseholder. A really excellent read!
by Mrs Griffiths
Every barrister, solicitor, architect, surveyor, estate agent or any other professional engaged in any way relating to leases MUST buy a copy of this excellent reference work. Everyone tells you that all leases are standard or that they know all about leases. Be assured they know nothing. This man is the only person who really understands leases and I have had 50 years associated with construction and design. Buy two - one for your desk and one for the bookshelf.
by Vincent McCartney
I have been married for over 41 years (we renewed our wedding vows in 2009, on the Queen Mary 2, at Christmas time in the Caribbean)
We have two Children and three Grand Children and I have always enjoyed family life and spending time with them
In my spare time, I like reading and music and, with my wife, have travelled extensively abroad
From a career point of view, I was a practising lawyer for nearly 40 years specialising almost exclusively in Leases (both residential and commercial) and during that time I acted for Leaseholders, Landlords and Management Companies. In addition, I have also worked for and provided advice to Property Managers and Managing Agents in relation to the management of leasehold properties. All of that has given me a unique range of experience
Whilst I cannot explain why, I love working with Leases, have a real passion for them, and have been very lucky to have been able to spend my career working with something I really enjoy. That has proved to be of great assistance when writing my book.
Whilst I am the age where I could soon retire into the sunset, it has never been part of my life plan to retire and I intend to carry on doing the things I love, including working with Leases, for some years yet.
