Service Charge Compliance
We can provide a “service charge health check”. We analyse one or two sample developments, reviewing systems and processes to ensure they are compliant with current legislation and best practice.
Service Charge Management Audits
We undertake forensic audits of draft service charge accounts prepared by managing agents. We look at issues ranging from the apportionment of charges to whether those charges are reasonable. Our instructions generally come from clients who wish to reduce the risk of challenge, however we have also acted for leaseholders who require expert advice on their service charges liabilities.
District Heating and Communal Energy
We offer advice ranging from input on the system set up and design provisions to legal guidance, metering and billing advice and leaseholder communication strategies.
Landlord & Tenant
We have a thorough understanding of the obligations placed on residential and commercial landlords by the Landlord and Tenant Act and the RICS Codes of Practice. We regularly advise clients on best practice and compliance to help prevent and defend legal challenges.
