Can anyone recommend a solicitor for dealing with Camden Leaseholder services? I’d like to try to push some action from Camden on a longstanding subsidence problem with our flat.
Dan19th April 2021 at 08:26 #5858
I have the same problem. Would you please let me know if you find one. Also maybe we can join together as a group.

Us too; specifically for unfair major works charges.19th April 2021 at 22:15 #5860Greg18Participant
I have the exact same problem along with many others. I’ve appointed a solicitor and am unfortunately at the point of County a court but it is the only option to get things done at Camden unfortunately.
Happy to recommend the solicitor I am using.20th April 2021 at 01:16 #5863
Thank you for your message and sharing your experience. I would like to have full details of your solicitor. Also could you please just let me know what the outcome might be. If you think it is not too late I would like to join with you and share the costs if possible.
My direct email is; email@example.com
Would be grateful to hear from you here or directly.

The Bourne Estate Leaseholders have a shortlist of solicitors specialising in service/major works charges. Private message if interested in getting contact details.20th April 2021 at 13:15 #5865
Recommend Anthony Golds based in London. Local branch in south London. Ask for Eleanor. Good luck!20th April 2021 at 18:52 #5866dbose09Participant
Great, thank you!21st April 2021 at 20:20 #5867
May have been suggested elsewhere but isn’t this issue where collective action would be more effective? Why don’t we find out if one of these recommended solicitors would act for all of us? Perhaps offer a retainer?22nd April 2021 at 00:17 #5869
Yes I agree collective efforts makes the case powerful and stronger.22nd April 2021 at 00:19 #5870
Anthony Gold does collective case. First you the leaseholders have to agree. I don’t know if it has to be same issue or same estate but I could check that if anyone is interested?22nd April 2021 at 02:02 #5871
Yes I agree to go ahead with the case collectively. I am all for it22nd April 2021 at 10:40 #5872
Anthony Gold would be a start if interested. How do we take this forward as a group?22nd April 2021 at 12:01 #5874
I am happy to join your group and go along with Anthony Gold. Maybe we can set up a group in one of the social media applications, like Whatsapp or Telegram with all parties participating including Anthony Gold to liaise all the necessary information in order to take the case forward. It requires an admin manager to set it up and also to inform the solicitor of such intention. The sooner the better22nd April 2021 at 15:04 #5873Leaseholder1Participant
It seems to me that Anthony Gold could help us not just with excessive major works demands, but also Camden’s failure to meet its obligations as freeholder, including failing to carry out necesssary repairs and deal with noise and nuisance issues. Given that as a group we could push quite a bit of work their way, could Anthony Gold, as a starting point, give us a presentation (on zoom) explaining how they can help us, their previous experience of dealing with Camden and other councils, and how and at what point we should approach them.
Also, I think members of the leaseholders committee may have taken legal advice or brought legal action against Camden, and it would be great if they could also share their previous experience, perhaps on the same zoom call. It would be particularly useful to know how leaseholders on an estate organise themselves as a group. We on our estate have found it difficult to form a leaseholders group and it is tricky knowing how to split costs between leaseholders.22nd April 2021 at 17:30 #5876SONOALIParticipant
Please also count me in with regards to major works.22nd April 2021 at 22:14 #5878SPantelidesParticipant
I would also like to participate in a ZOOM Call with Anthony Gold and understand how he can help us. My main interest is Major Works23rd April 2021 at 00:36 #5880Jerome BOUGHTON MILLSParticipant
A number of leaseholders have a WhatsApp group where we are having pretty much the same conversation. If you wish to join us message me and we can get you added. There has to be strength in numbers. Jerome23rd April 2021 at 05:19 #5881
Please add me on whatsapp
My name is Mohsen23rd April 2021 at 06:39 #5882
Please send details of the estate you having major works issues with and the solicitor recommendation: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks.23rd April 2021 at 07:26 #5883
Please add me to the WhatsApp group – 07808169549. Im a leaseholder on the Alexandra Place Estate – no firm advice of imminent major works bill but as its some years since the last, expected some time soon.23rd April 2021 at 09:04 #5885
The Bourne Estate Leaseholders’ Group has 12 leaseholders and we have shortlisted a solicitor already. We are open to others and if all us from different Camden owned properties all get to together to chip with asking questions that relate to all our cases then this could bring the cost down massively. For example, whether a particular piece of work like changing windows is an improvement or genuinely needed. If anyone would like to share access to our legal adviser assuming the above isn’t suitable then email me on email@example.com April 2021 at 15:09 #5889SutcliffeParticipant
Hi. I own a flat in Cavendish Mansions on Clerkenwell Rd and have previously had huge bills for Major works. Very interested to hear what comes from taking Camden Council on.23rd April 2021 at 15:25 #5897
