What we do

Breaches of Lease

If you have lessees who have breached the terms of their leases we will offer advice in identifying the steps to be taken to remedy those breaches including the further legal action to be taken if those breaches are not remedied.

Enfranchisement

We act for Freeholders in what can often be described as a complex and niche area of law. The Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 as amended by the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 affords tenants the right (upon qualification) to purchase the freehold of their building or part of their building.

PDC Law offer expert advice in all areas of collective enfranchisement and are able to provide a complete end to end service for its clients.

Lease Extensions

The Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (as amended by subsequent acts) provides Leaseholders with the statutory right to extend their lease by 90 years and add this to the remaining term of the existing lease for a peppercorn rent.

As the freeholder, whether you are faced with the tenants statutory right or are negotiating a voluntary extension PDC Law can provide you with advice, guidance and most importantly the desired result!

Lease Review

Both freeholders and managing agents will benefit from our in depth lease review service for developments across their portfolio. Our team identify key clauses, decipher their meaning and explain how they should be implemented in practice.

Right to Manage

The Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 provides leasehold owners with the statutory right to collectively make their own decisions as regards the management of their flats by setting up a right to manage (RTM) Company.

PDC Law offers freeholders in receipt of a ‘right to information notice’ and or ‘notice of claim’ expert advice. We are able to assess validity and identify dispute grounds, offer representation in the FTT and effectively manage the transfer of management where required.
