MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A MANCHESTER LEASE EXTENSION SPECIALIST ONSIDE
The importance of instructing a specialist lease extension solicitor must not be underestimated. Lease extensions are highly specialist areas of property law and the relevant legislation is very complicated.
Many solicitors may believe that they have enough expertise to take on lease extension work only to find themselves struggling to meet their clients’ needs due to the complexity of the legal work. This is not the case with our accredited lease extension experts.
There are many deadlines involved in lease extension work and if one of these is missed it can cause enormous problems.
Furthermore, interacting with difficult landlords requires experience and a detailed knowledge of lease extension law. Sometimes landlords will attempt to stall negotiations so that it will cost the leaseholder far more to complete the residential lease extension process.
Solicitors must be able to identify these tricks and take the matter to first-tier property Tribunal [previously known as the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal] if necessary.
