The Leasehold Advice Centre provides a highly efficient & competitive fee paying service for flat owners to claim various rights to which they are entitled. We have been providing a very full & substantive service for clients for over 12 years and do not expect leaseholders to do the work themselves, unlike some of our competitors. In our opinion, the various procedures, especially preparation & service of Notices, should only be carried out by experienced professionals who specialise in the field, as claims can fail where the procedures laid out in the legislation have not been complied with adequately & leaseholders are still liable for costs.
These are a genuine copy & paste of actual quotes made by clients about our services

Take away the management, control, repairs & even the insurance away from the existing Landlord / Managing Agents, effectively putting the participating lessees in charge. The Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 is legislation which provides an opportunity for the flat owners to run their own affairs and to make their own decisions about the management and upkeep of their flats, including the insurance, repairs, service charges etc. by means of The Right To Manage - 'RTM'. The landlord's consent is not required & even where Landlords may be absent the Leaseholders should be able to secure the management via RTM. There is no need to prove mismanagement by the landlord or the current managing agent to implement the right. We can act on your behalf to form the RTM Company, serve the Invitation Notices and the Notice of Claim to put you (via the RTM Company) in control of the management of the building at comparatively small cost
Extend your lease by an additional 90 years over and above your existing term, all at a 'peppercorn' (i.e. nil) ground rent. This can be very beneficial for lessees with short leases or those with high levels of ground rent or undesirable ground rent review clauses. The Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (as amended) is legislation which provides an opportunity for an additional term of 90 years, at a peppercorn rent which is basically the same as being rent free. The additional 90 years is plus the present unexpired term. We can act on your behalf for an independent valuation to be obtained & to prepare & serve the Notice of Claim upon your Landlord. We can search for 'absent Landlords' & assist with Vesting Order applications as well where necessary
Buy the Freehold of the block collectively between a number of the lessees. The 1993 Leasehold Reform Act (as amended) provides the right for at least 50% of 'qualifying' leaseholders to compel the Landlord to sell the Freehold to them. We can act on your behalf in respect of obtaining a specialist Valuer's opinion and to prepare & serve the Notice of Claim upon your Landlord. We can search for 'absent Landlords', assist with Vesting Order applications and negotiate with the Crown where appropriate.
