At RVS Solicitors, we work for both landlords and the owners of leaseholds (tenants) if a dispute surrounding service charges or ground rent develops.
The issue of ground rent and services charges have been subject to a lot of media attention over the past 12 months. Many tenants are becoming frustrated with being locked into what they view as oppressive services charges and/or ground rent which increases by such a percentage every year, their home becomes practically unsalable.
At RVS Solicitors, we work for both landlords and the owners of leaseholds (tenants) if a dispute surrounding service charges or ground rent develops. We can advise and represent clients in the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber); however, we are also highly experienced in alternative dispute resolution methods such as negotiations and mediation. These are generally more cost-effective than formal litigation and allow for win/win scenarios, providing a greater chance that the relationship between the parties can be preserved.
