Owners of leasehold flats will get greater protection against poor service from managing agents following the launch of a new regulatory regime.The new regime, which has received cross-party support, has been developed by the industry’s trade body ARMA and contains a number of measures specifically designed to protect leaseholders.
Most freeholders (whatever type they are) and resident management companies are highly likely to employ the services of a managing agent, largely due to the logistics involved in self-managing anything larger than a very small block. This makes them central to the leasehold sector so what are they and what do they do?
For the answer to this question, Leasehold Life is very pleased to introduce new guest contributor Chris Alexander, a property litigation solicitor at SA Law LLP who advises landlords, tenants and managing agents on all aspects of residential landlord and tenant law. This advice includes service charge disputes, disrepair claims, forfeiture, lease extenstion, collective enfranchisement, right of first refusal and the appointment of managers. Chris also writes the Leasehold Lawyer Blog giving commentary on issues in the world of residential landlord and tenant law.
