Duration: 1 hour
Residential leasehold property is in a bit of a mess. The fire safety crisis has led to thousands, if not tens of thousands, of leaseholders being faced with huge remediation costs. The government response in the Fire Safety Act and the Building Safety Bill is not necessarily the panacea that many have hoped. What are the key changes? What problems will this lead to? The Ground Rent Bill seems likely to end ground rents on new leasehold properties and this session will give an update on the progress of that reform. It will also look at the big cases of the last 12 months such as West India Quay v ETAL (s.20B, LTA 1985 and legal costs), Firstport v Settlers Court RTM Co Ltd (first time the Supreme Court has considered the Right to Manage regime) and Aster v Chapman (service charge consultation).
