Every housing association or social landlord has the duty to manage its leaseholders according to the terms of their lease and the general law. When leaseholders choose to ignore these provisions, it may become necessary to enforce the terms of their leases.
Housing and Property Law Partnership (HPLP) offers boutique legal services for registered providers and their managing agents, property managers, housing co-operatives and other registered providers throughout London and Southeast England. We provide tailored, individualised solutions in the understanding that every case is unique. As recognised experts in property law, we provide the expertise and experienced legal advice you need to achieve your aims.
Why should your housing association choose HPLP?
Our solicitors are recognised professionals in handling all forms of tenant misconduct and other issues. We are an award winning law firm, accredited by the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners (ALEP). We act on behalf of all registered providers, from major multi-office housing associations with several properties to smaller specialist set-ups with only a few members. Our experience includes handling leaseholder issues involving:
- Illegal uses of the flat (brothels, drug dealing, etc.)
- Unauthorized alterations to the flat
- Improperly installed aerials or satellite dishes
- Illegally sub-letting or selling the flat
- Lease extensions and lease renewals
We take a pro-active or re-active approach as indicated by the conduct in question. Where the safety and security of other tenants or the property are in danger, we work quickly to address the problem through all avenues, including litigation if necessary. For less urgent disputes, such as unauthorized alterations or lease renewals, we might suggest alternative dispute resolution to obtain amicable solutions through negotiation. We advise housing associations and managing agents on their rights and the law.
Whatever the issue, we provide the legal knowledge and expertise you need to ensure your assets and rights are protected. For more information, please review some of our case studies for examples of where our expertise has achieved success on behalf of our clients.
