Acted for a client in respect of a possession claim, including defending a beneficial interest claim made by the Defendant against the Claimant in respect of the property. The matter was settled in the significant favour of our client.
Acted for a client on a freehold collective enfranchisement claim against a particularly difficult landlord. The issue at stake was the demand by the landlord of unreasonable sums for the premium together with unreasonable conditions in the transfer document. Protracted negotiations on both aspects resulted in the matter being settled to the benefit of our client, with a significant reduction in the premium and the provisions in the transfer being brought in line.
