Help with tackling block management disputes
Disruptive leaseholders (or even those just unaware of their responsibilities) make life difficult for their fellow residents and give landlords and managing agents a headache.
- Parking their van outside the block.
- Hanging out the washing.
- Laying wooden floors.
- Keeping pets in the property.
- Subletting without permission
- Airbnb letting
These are just some of the issues that block managers, landlords, and – on occasion – other leaseholders ask Brady Solicitors to help them tackle.
So what can you do if a leaseholder is in breach of their lease?
The first step is to remind your leaseholders of their duties under the terms of their lease. Give them the chance to correct their behaviour.
If however you have a leaseholder who is persistently in breach of their lease and isn’t responding to a friendly word, Brady Solicitors can help you to take firm action through the court system.
More often than not, we find that a disruptive leaseholder will react quite quickly to communication from a solicitor and that court action isn’t necessary in order for calm to be restored.
You may be surprised how fast a well-worded, expert letter can change longstanding behaviour.
