My parents are both registered disabled and are 85 years old. My father has dementia and my mother a hip replacement, they cannot get up to the third floor without the lift because they cant manage the stairs. the lift needs major work doing on it and they have been told it may be out of action for up to 6 weeks. They own the flat leasehold and own 1 19th of the freehold along with 19 other leaseholders that each owns there flat. there are four directors. please, can you advise me what laws cover them in regards to the lift being out of use for so long and what steps I can take to help them as they will be potentially trapped in the flat for all of this time without a lift .thank you. David .
