Major works

It’s a fact of life that buildings need to be repaired, maintained and renewed. Whether it’s a programme of external redecorations, or the replacement of a roof, major works are part of the ongoing management of a building.

And where a landlord proposes to carry out works which will cost any leaseholder more than £250 and recover the costs via the service charge, then the landlord will either need to undertake a consultation exercise or obtain dispensation from consultation.

With the costs consequences being so drastic for a landlord who doesn’t comply, the expertise and advice we can provide is a must.
