  • Ground rent arrears recovery

    Ground rent arrears recovery

    Ground rent arrears can no longer be regarded as an afterthought to service charge recovery and the ability to manage large volumes with accurate and detailed financial reporting is a key requirement for ground rent managers when appointing a solicitor.

    At JB Leitch, we act for many of the largest ground rent management companies in the UK, specialising in customised ground rent collection services on both criteria and non-criteria ground rent debts.

  • Service charge arrears recovery

    Service charge arrears recovery

    Excellent property management relies on sufficient funds being available to the managing agent to carry out maintenance or provide key services to leaseholders.

    At JB Leitch, we have many years’ experience in service charge arrears recovery on both residential and commercial premises.  From receipt of instructions through to final remittance, our turnaround times are impressive.  In the vast majority of cases, all costs are recovered from the defaulting lessee and we also fund court fees on your behalf pending recovery.

  • Breach of covenant

    Breach of covenant

    Whilst the most common breaches relate to the non-payment of rent, service charges or other sums due, there are other possible breaches of a lease.

    We manage cases efficiently to ensure the landlord’s position is protected.  In many instances, we are able to obtain damages and compensation on their behalf.

  • Forfeiture

    Forfeiture

    If a leaseholder is in breach of the terms of their lease, we can pursue forfeiture action on your behalf for both criteria debt and non-debt breaches on either residential or commercial premises.

    Given the extra protection afforded to residential leaseholders under the law, it is essential that legal advice takes account of the additional requirements in any residential forfeiture proceedings.

  • PRS

    PRS

    With the growth of the build to rent sector, many developers and landlords will have both traditional leasehold and PRS properties in their portfolio.  Therefore it makes sense to use a legal firm that can deal with both types of property – both from a collections and reporting angle.

    JB Leitch acted for many, many years for buy-to-let landlords large and small and, whilst we no longer offer these services to individual landlords, we are very pleased to bring this experience to the PRS market.
