About this deal

A tenant of a flat whose landlord is a qualifying tenant of that flat is not to be regarded as being a qualifying tenant of that flat. Thanks in particular to our surveyor Steve who answered the questions we had on the survey and to Joanne for arranging and delivering. Timing of sale of flats – a disposal prior to the exchange of contracts for the flat which would take the number of Qualifying Tenants over the 50% threshold.

Unfortunately for him, the tenants then served a further purchase notice requesting he transfer the freehold to them for no consideration. of the Magistrates Courts Act 1980: 'a magistrates' court shall not try an information or hear a complaint unless the information was laid, or the complaint made, within 6 months from the time when the offence was committed, or the matter of complaint arose'. As we shall see, where participating tenants’ leases have unexpired terms of less than 80 years, this can result in a much better deal for lessees than an enfranchisement claim under the 1993 Act.As such, owners of mixed use buildings will need to consider the right of first refusal when granting leases of commercial units.

and for the purposes of this subsection the internal floor area of any common parts shall be disregarded. Whether the draftsmen of the Act intended these far-reaching effects we will never know but, bearing in mind the sanctions for non-compliance, it is often best to tread with caution. James and the team were fantastic: so responsive to questions, really knew their stuff and kept me updated every step of the way.This is the first time we worked with Peter Barry Surveyors to survey our plans for a loft room conversion. Therefore, especially in buildings where the percentages are close, it is important to consider very carefully what is and what is not deemed to be common parts. This is important for landlords as breach of the LTA 1987 provisions runs the risk of criminal prosecution and penalties for the landlord, as well as the right to compensation for the Qualifying Tenants.
