Applications at the First-tier Tribunal Property Chamber FTT

The FTT is, unfortunately, quickly becoming part of every day life for most residential property managers.

Our Enfranchisement and Residential Leasehold team are experienced in dealing with all manner of service charge disputes: from disputed, multi million pound major works projects; to contested fire safety works; to global challenges by disgruntled leaseholders to every item of expenditure incurred over periods of many years; and attempted counter claims and set offs for damages, caused by leaking roofs.

Partner Roger Hardwick is recognised as one of the leading experts in the field, and has been involved in a number of high profile decisions in the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber).

In addition to applications to determine service charges, our expert Verity McMahon has a considerable amount of experience with applications for dispensation from the statutory consultation requirements; applications to vary leases of flats (for example, where service charges do not add up to 100%); and applications to appoint a manager, under Part II of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987.
