During the Covid-19 crisis, our dedicated teams are very much open for business.
We are still dealing with many new enquiries every day.
If you think we may be able to help you, please do not hesitate to call us on 020 7940 4060 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Landlords & Agents
Local authority authorities are continuing to proceed with enforcement action during the current lockdown, and our regulatory specialists are able to give advice, make representations and commence appeals where necessary.
We are able to give advice to landlords and agents on how to address the current crisis and fulfil their legal obligations during the lockdown.
Lease Extensions and Enfranchisement
For leasehold services, the lockdown measures give owners time to reflect again on whether it is the right time for them to instigate either the collective enfranchisement process to acquire their freehold or a lease extension process. This is as good a time as any to start either of these processes and particularly if your lease term has less than 85 years remaining.
If you start one of these statutory processes now, completion is likely to be 6 – 10 months away. If your financial circumstances change during the process, you are not obliged to complete or you should be able to suspend the process for a period. We offer a free initial telephone consultation, and should you wish to discuss your particular circumstances please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Leasehold Services Team on 020 7940 4060.
Tenants, leaseholders and homeowners
With many people being stuck at home, unsatisfactory housing conditions can be an unpleasant daily reality. Whether it is repairs that need to be done, defects in a newly built property, or damp and other defects, we may be able to help. Landlords and developers may say that nothing can be done during the current crisis, but they are wrong. The current crisis is an opportunity to start putting things right. We are well-known experts in dealing with repairs and related issues. We are open for business and please do feel free to contact us.
