Pemberton Greenish secures leasehold enfranchisement success for landlord Sloane Stanley Estate in Court of Appeal case
The Court of Appeal has today handed down its judgment in the above case which is of great interest to enfranchisement practitioners. It concerns one element of the statutory process for calculating the premium payable for an extended lease under Chapter II of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 known as “relativity”.
I read with interest an article you’d written about landlords demanding ground rent and being able to claim six years’ worth providing they complete the appropriate demand form correctly.
My leaseholder has demanded this of me too but my question is – which I can’t seem to find a definitive answer to – are they in breach as they haven’t sent invoices/demands annually in the first instance or is this irrelevant if they have done it all in one go backdated six years with the correct form?
