Our landlord and tenant solicitors cover breaches of lease, licence to alter, debt recovery, claim notices and sale of the freehold.
We provide expert debt recovery services for freehdolders, intermediate landlords and property management companies.
A licence is required for leaseholders to make internal alterations to their property. We can also produce a retrospective licence to alter.
We act for freeholders, intermediate landlords with head leases and management companies whose tenants are in breach of lease.
The Landlord & Tenant Act 1987 says that freeholders must offer the right of first refusal to any leaseholders before selling the freehold.
Failure to respond to a Section 13 or Section 42 Notice, or doing anything that might admit the validity of the claim notices, could be costly.
A leaseholder may be said to be in breach of the lease when it defaults on its duties under the lease, possibly leading to forfeiture.
