Where a group of leaseholders is dissatisfied with the management of their building or estate, or they simply wish to take control, they may consider claiming the right to manage under the provisions of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002.
We can represent leaseholders wishing to exercise the right to manage, or landlords/management companies faced with such a claim, no matter the size of the building or development.
We assist either party from the outset of the claim, advising on the process and whether or not the leaseholders are entitled to exercise the right to manage, through to conclusion and acquisition.
RIGHT TO MANAGE FOR LEASEHOLDERS
We work with leaseholders from the outset to advise on qualification and entitlement to claim the right to manage, before a claim is commenced.
We undertake all work throughout the claim including the formation/incorporation of the right to manage company, service of notices inviting participation to all qualifying leaseholders, service of the claim notice on the landlord and/or management company, advising on the landlord’s and/or management company’s counter notice, and advice following acquisition. We also advise on and conduct any litigation work in the Tribunal, in the event that the claim is contested.
RIGHT TO MANAGE FOR LANDLORDS OR MANAGEMENT COMPANIES
We act for landlords and management companies faced with claims exercising the right to manage.
We will review qualification and entitlement to claim the right to manage, serve the relevant counter notice and advise following acquisition. We also advise on and conduct any litigation work in the Tribunal, if the claim is contested.
As it is the responsibility of the right to manage company formed by the leaseholders to pay the landlord’s and/or management company’s reasonable costs associated with the right to manage claim (save for any costs incurred in the Tribunal, where the claim is contested), often this work is facilitated at no cost to the client.
