Case Studies
1. A landlord client received statutory notices served under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 from the tenants of a block of 45 flats in order to extend the terms of their leases. Nathaniel acted for the landlord and successfully managed the volume of claims, establishing the most efficient and straightforward method of processing matters so that the client obtained the various premiums in a timely manner, which totalled a six-figure amount.

2. A client wished to dispose of their freehold interest in a mixed use block consisting of commercial units and then 40 flats above. The transaction was caught by the relevant provisions of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987 (“the 1987 Act”). Each of the 40 tenants in the block had a Right of First Refusal under the 1987 Act, meaning Nathaniel had to oversee the service of Section 5 notices on each of the tenants at both their registered owners’ addresses and the flats themselves. Once the client had satisfied its statutory obligations under the 1987 Act, it was able to sell the freehold interest in the block.
