Hello and welcome to the latest LVT news update from Camden Leaseholders’ Forum.
A Leasehold Valuation Tribunal (LVT) is a statutory tribunal in England which decides on various types of landlord and tenant disputes involving property. e.g. If you have a property complaint which is not resolved with Camden Council, you may take Camden Council to the LVT. Equally, as in the current case regarding the management element of service charges, Camden Council may take you to the LVT. The decision of the LVT is legally binding but only to your specific case, unless one of the parties decides to appeal.
Nicolas Kisson (Chief Litigation Solicitor) and Tom Frith (Solicitor) from LEASE will be giving a presentation on the recent changes to the LVT, which will become the new First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber), as part of Islington Leaseholders Association’s annual general meeting. The meeting is on Wednesday, 12 June at 7pm in the Council Chamber at Islington Town Hall, 222 Upper Street, Islington, N1 1XR. All are welcome.
Camden Leaseholders’ Forum has also published a document about how to try to get Camden Council to deal with your complaints; hopefully speeding up the whole process, reducing misunderstanding(s) and getting an effective resolution. Download the article here.
The next regular Camden Leaseholders’ Association meeting will be at 6.45pm on Tuesday, 18th June at Camden Town Hall, Judd Street, Kings Cross, WC1H 9JE. The next open meeting will be later this year, on a date to be confirmed.
That’s it for now!
