Need help with forfeiture and repossessions?
We have considerable expertise in defending and issuing possession claims for residential tenancies and leasehold properties. We can guide you through the statutory mechanism for obtaining possession in the case of short tenancies. Where there are long residential leases for apartments or houses – we can explain the restrictions on the right to forfeit the lease and guide you through the legal requirements.
Has your lease been breached?
In most cases of long residential leases the landlord is required to apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal for determination of the breach of lease before commencing forfeiture proceedings.
If you are a landlord, we can draft the application and represent you at the hearing. If you are a leaseholder, we can draft a response to the landlord’s application and present your case to the tribunal.
