Leasehold Knowledge Partnership

Leasehold Knowledge Partnership banner

Charity description

The Leasehold Knowledge Partnership and Carlex seek to represent the interests of residential leaseholders and end unfairness in this form of property tenure.

Carlex (, the Campaign Against Retirement Leasehold Exploitation, represents the interests of retirement leaseholders.

Our patrons are the MPs Sir Peter Bottomley and Jim Fitzpatrick, and we provide the secretariat to the new All Party Parliamentary Group on leasehold and commonhold, formed on September 7 2016.

We also report the sector in award-winning editorial coverage, highlighting abuses and inconsistencies to be found in leasehold.

The work of LKP / Carlex has been reported by all UK media.
England and Wales are unique in the world in perpetuating flat "ownership" in the form of a tenancy – leasehold – with all the vulnerability that that involves.

Many who live in flats are young, old and single. Often knowledge of leasehold is very limited, and in disputes they are disadvantaged.
