On-going nuisance claims and ever increasing arrears are sometimes unavoidable.

We work across the range of property management litigation, from bulk service charge and ground rent recovery work, to obtaining and enforcing determinations from the courts or tribunals. We handle everything from informal advice over the telephone to representation in the most complex high-value property disputes. Building on our sector focus, we have developed considerable expertise in the successful representation of our clients.

Our process –from start to finish- has been streamlined and reviewed constantly for years, to make sure we do everything we can to get things back on track as efficiently as possible. Our communication with defaulting tenants has been carved from years of experience working with clients and barristers who are highly recognised in their field.

From our promise to action instructions within 24 hours, to ensuring reports are sent in-line with the requirements of both you and your clients, we take our responsibility seriously. We pride ourselves in streamlining our process to match yours, and nearly all of our stages are tailored to what you need. We work closely with your team ensuring that where it is not possible to settle matters outside of court, the proceedings are handles swiftly and effectively, with minimal cost.

We can provide a fixed-fee retainer service to support you tailored to your needs for some areas, and operate on a fixed-fee basis for others. As a guide, we undertake the following services:

  • Fixed-fee service charge and ground rent bulk debt recovery, with costs in most cases recovered from the defaulting lessee or the general service charge fund;
  • Representation by us or counsel at court or tribunal proceedings; and,
  • We pay for disbursements and recover them from the lessee or the general service charge fund in most straightforward cases.

You will have one fee earner assigned to your file that will retain responsibility throughout the matter, and on a day-to-day basis. All contact details, and those of the team, will be available and on-hand to discuss any issues that may arise.
