The Lambeth Homeowners’ Association (LHA) is run by leaseholders for leaseholders and other homeowners who pay service charges to Lambeth Council.
The main functions of the LHA are to provide a forum for homeowners to exchange information, assist each other with problems and raise issues of general concern with Lambeth Council.
The LHA sends out a monthly newsletter to keep members up to date with housing matters.
We also have an online Google Forum for members to share their experiences of Lambeth Council as their freeholder. Members offer advice to each other on dealing with their leasehold questions and problems.
We organise in-person and online meetings for members to discuss their issues. These include (among other items):
- incorrect service charges
- excessive major works bills
- poor quality work
- leasehold extension
- buying the freehold
Membership is free and open to leaseholders and other homeowners who pay service charges to Lambeth Council. Occasionally we ask for contributions to running expenses. The organising committee is elected each December. The constitution can be seen by clicking here
There are about 30,000 council properties in Lambeth, of which about 9500 are leasehold properties. Our current membership stands at over 1000. To be truly effective in representing a collective leaseholders’ view to the council we need many more members to sign up, particularly as next year many leaseholders will be facing large major works bills as the properties get refurbished.
Acting together gets much better results than acting alone. Please JOIN the association.
