(including cyclical repairs and replacement).
We are experienced in the oversight of major and cyclical works.
Requirements under Section 20 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 (as amended by S151 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002).
We seek to include our customers at each stage of the process over and above the normal consultation requirements.
The consultation process must be used if these works will cost over £250 for any one leaseholder. Thus, in a property with unequal service charge contributions, the landlord must consult all leaseholders if any one of them would have to pay more than £250 (£100 in the case of contracts that exceed one year). If consultation is not undertaken, the landlord may not be able to recover costs over £250 (£100) per leaseholder.
At each stage of the process of consultation with lessees under our Section 20 process, we maintain regular communication with the landlord, taking instruction where necessary.
