Breach of Covenant

The leading experts in leasehold law…

Often a landlord must take action in order to avoid being in breach of lease with other leaseholders in the block or being deemed to having waived the right to forfeit over the said breach. Taking action may also deter other leaseholders within a development acting in a similar manner.

As the leading legal experts in leasehold law, JB Leitch has considerable experience in managing matters such as:

  • Unauthorised change of use
  • Unauthorised alterations
  • Unlawful sub-letting
  • Nuisance
  • Disrepair

We also know that breach issues can sometimes generate negative feeling towards managing agents. By instructing JB Leitch, managing agents take themselves out of the picture and help to defuse the situation. Alternatively, in situations where breaches are deemed beneficial, we can offer full assistance with retrospective licenses for consent.

We will take each case on its own facts and can offer bespoke advice and guide you through the various options that best suit your objectives.
