What do you do if leaseholders are consistently breaching the terms of their lease? Brady Solicitors property management experts are available for expert advice on dealing with disruptive leaseholders.
Help with tackling block management disputes
Disruptive leaseholders (or even those just unaware of their responsibilities) make life difficult for their fellow residents and give landlords and managing agents a headache.
- Parking their van outside the block.
- Hanging out the washing.
- Laying wooden floors.
- Keeping pets in the property.
- Subletting without permission
- Airbnb letting
These are just some of the issues that block managers, landlords, and – on occasion – other leaseholders ask Brady Solicitors to help them tackle.
So what can you do if a leaseholder is in breach of their lease?
The first step is to remind your leaseholders of their duties under the terms of their lease. Give them the chance to correct their behaviour. If, however, you have a leaseholder who is persistently in breach of their lease and isn’t responding to a friendly word, Brady Solicitors can help you to take appropriate action to prevent further breaches.
More often than not, we find that a disruptive leaseholder will react quite quickly to communication from a solicitor and that court action isn’t necessary in order for calm to be restored.

Since using Bradys for the last 18 months our service charge arrears situation has completely reversed. Not only have the collected arrears that have hung round for ages but they have reduced the overall debt considerably including on complex freehold estate rent charges.
They really ‘get’ the property management industry and what is required to support us in the variety of challenges we face.
I am very happy with the way Brady Solicitors helped me to extend my lease. They made the process easy, clarifying the various stages, giving me advice on my options and handling them professionally.
I have found them to be highly professional in all our dealings, but most of all knowledgeable of the minutiae of service charges and block management.
Many thanks for your help, professional advice and calm nerves. I will be recommending you to anyone I know needing a good solicitor buying or selling or indeed needing a lease extension.
We feel we have an expert partner on our side supporting our arrears collection. Using Bradys making our block management projects easier, educates our team and fundamentally makes our client relationships stronger.
We turned to Brady Solicitors when our existing legal team hit a brick wall. Bradys got to grips with the problem, recovered the arrears and – happily – have helped us to build better leaseholder relationships.
Brady’s has recently carried out multiple lease extensions, with mine included. These have taken place in good time, and I have been informed of the various steps of progress in a pleasant and knowledgeable manner. Many thanks.
Working with Brady Solicitors was easy. We hadn’t been able to recover service charge arrears from one leaseholder for many years, with numerous people getting involved to try and recover them. It was brilliant when the funds came through within only months of instructing Bradys.
I was very satisfied with Brady Solicitors. They were very helpful and if I did not understand things they were always there to help. I would definitely recommend them to everyone.
We take great pride in the recognition we have received, which showcases our innovative approaches and capabilities within the industry.
