    Sad passing of ALEP Co-Founder

    It is with great sadness that ALEP announce the death of ALEP co-founder and Director, Alex Greenslade.

    Alex, 51, who founded the professional membership association with his sister, Anna Bailey, died suddenly at home on 12 December.

    Alex had worked with leaseholders since 1998 and was also co-founder and Chairman of the Leasehold Group of companies. Alex was a regular in the NOTB Hot 100 and was presented with the ERMAs Outstanding Achievement Award in 2017.



    Clare Grove, ALEP’s spokesperson said: 

    “Alex was a professional, a stickler for detail, a mighty intellect and a stalwart of the enfranchisement sector.  Together with Anna, he founded our association with the aim of bringing together those with expertise in this niche field, to tackle the behaviour of those he always called the ‘dabblers’ and to provide a badge of assurance to both leaseholders and freeholders. 

    He will be much missed by all who had the pleasure of working with him over the years. Our thoughts are with Anna and Alex’s family at this time.”

    Property Tribes sends compassionate thoughts to Anna and Alex's families and also to Alex's colleagues at ALEP.

    Leasehold Solutions is mourning the death of Alex Greenslade, who founded the project management company with his sister, Anna Bailey, in 2002.

    In the late 1990s, Alex was the owner of a leasehold flat with a relatively short lease. His landlord offered an extension, but with unfavourable terms. Not wanting to be bound to an unsatisfactory lease, Alex instead managed the freehold acquisition of his building on behalf of his neighbours.

    Reflecting on how difficult the process was, Alex noticed a gap in the market and set up the first specialist leasehold enfranchisement project management company, working solely on behalf of leaseholders.

    Alex was joined at Leasehold Solutions by his sister, Anna Bailey, and under their leadership, the company went from strength to strength. In 2007 Alex and Anna – in an effort to stop those ‘dabbling’ in the sector - went on to launch the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners (ALEP). Following the success of Leasehold Solutions, Leasehold Valuers was established in 2013 and Leasehold Law in 2014.

    Louie Burns, Managing Director of the Leasehold Solutions group of companies, said:

    “Alex was a remarkable person who devoted his career to helping to improve the lives of leaseholders across the country. Thanks to his foresight and vision, Leasehold Solutions was born and has gone on to support thousands of leaseholders over the past 16 years.

    “Alex's exceptional contribution to our companies, our sector, the wider property industry and our community cannot be overstated, and he will be gravely missed by all those who knew him. Our hearts are with Alex's family and loved ones at this tragic and difficult time.” 

    ​A memorial service will be held in the New Year.
