Leasehold Life is the only property information site based on a wide range of freehold, leasehold and PRS problems experienced by our block of flats, a journey which starts here.
In addition to my own writings I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to present articles contributed by a number of industry professionals along with summarised case-law updates, initially provided by Barrister Jonathan Upton of Tanfield Chambers) and now provided quarterly by Solicitor David Whitney of Painsmith Solicitors.

- Invited to be one of the guest speakers at the 2013 ARMA Conference with my presentation transcribed into an article by Flat Living Magazine entitled ‘Lost In Translation’;

Suzanne Wickes: Managing Director at Hera Management Services
“Sharon’s in-depth knowledge of leasehold and in particular leaseholders’ requirements was invaluable when we were designing Hera’s services. Sharon provided us with a comprehensive article and information about what leaseholders wanted from a managing agent (based on feedback to her site) that has been used as a “blueprint” for our services to which we always refer back. I would highly recommend Sharon and would work with her again at any opportunity”.
Bob Smytherman: Chairman of the Federation Of Private Residents Association
“Sharon works tirelessly in the interests of leaseholders and RTM Directors providing good, sound practical advice about the RTM process and the responsibilities faced by those becoming Directors. Sharon’s web-site Leasehold Life provides essential reading for anyone interested in the leasehold sector and is always very happy to add contributions from the FPRA for which we are most grateful “.

Sharon is committed to improving the lot of residents of all tenures and for that she should be commended”.
Katie Cohen: Partner at Child & Child Solicitors
“I first came across Leasehold Life through the Enfranchisement Group on linkedin and made contact with Sharon with a view to JPC Law contributing enfranchisement related articles to the site. I was impressed by Sharon from the start. Her passion for leaseholder’s rights was unrivalled and the content of her site is both interesting and informative” .
