Grenfell-Styled Cladding Sparks Friction with Leaseholders

Updated: Mar 7, 2018

Montpelier Solicitors' Dispute Resolution team advises 78 Paddington leasehold residents on the service charge which the freeholder of their estate is seeking to impose in the wake of Grenfell.


Numerous private residents across the country have received notices from management companies of exceptional service charges relating to the removal and replacement of cladding and other fire-safety measures. Leaseholders are entitled to be consulted on qualifying works and can challenge those works or the cost of implementing those works if they are ‘unreasonable’.


A number of cases are making their way through the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) raising similar issues as leaseholders take issue with unconscionable service charge demands.


The Montpelier team advising on the matter is headed by Kumarlo Menns.
