The relationship between leaseholder, management company and freeholder is, ordinarily, relatively peaceful. Disputes tend to only arise when one of the parties breaches the lease in some way. If you are having a problem with your freeholder, or are a landlord with issues with your leaseholders, our specialist property disputes solicitors can assist.
Service charge disputes
Service charge disputes take many forms, and our solicitors have the expertise to deal with them. For example, we act for long leaseholders concerned that their landlord has not been transparent about the service charges; and freeholders and management companies that would like some advice on the best way to deal with the service charges. We also work with freeholders to recover unpaid
Breaches of lease
Disputes between long leaseholders and freeholders sometimes arise when one of the parties breaches a term of the lease. We advise both leaseholders and freeholders on disputes concerning unauthorised alterations; unauthorised subletting or assignment; disrepair (whether the item in need of repair is the landlord’s or leaseholder’s responsibility) and unauthorised alterations.
Dealing with a nuisance neighbour
There may be circumstances when a leaseholder’s behaviour becomes a nuisance to the other occupiers. This could be by noise nuisance or anti-social behaviour. While many such issues are resolvable between the parties, we can help you take action where required.
There may be instances where a freeholder wishes to forfeit a lease and recover possession of a flat as a result of the leaseholder’s breaches of lease. We can advise you on your rights and the procedure, whether you are a freeholder, management company or leaseholder.

What Our Clients Say
Mr M, Leeds
"Worth every penny. Totally delighted with the outcome of my protracted conflict with a problem Tenant. A huge thank you to Connor and Ed in achieving such a small time frame through the labyrinthine judicial paper trail associated with evictions which had previously had me frustrated beyond belief. Cheers guys."
Mr S, Leeds
"The rebuilding of my house went horribly wrong with the main contractor going into liquidation and subsequently a number of defects coming to light. Thanks to Ed I have managed to recover almost half of the cost of the build from the architect who was managing the build - considerably more than I originally expected. I would highly recommend Ed particularly for his grasp of detail in a case involving hundreds of emails, photographs and pages of experts reports."
Mr B, Leeds
"What great service Ed provided me with, the end result was what I wanted. Cheers again."
