Major Works and s.20 Consultations
The law around major works and section 20 consultations leaves many unsure how to plan for repair, maintenance and improvement works to their blocks. Brady Solicitors can help you make sense of the legislation and guide you through the process.
Leaseholder communication is key
Open, transparent dialogue and communication with leaseholders during the section 20 consultation procedure is vital to securing the necessary contributions to the planned projects. We can support you through the consultation process, attending leaseholder meetings and steering you through the necessary stages.
On occasions however where consultation isn’t possible (for example when emergency works have to be carried out), Brady Solicitors has extensive experience of successfully applying to the First-tier Tribunal for retrospective dispensation from consultation.

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 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.
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.
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.
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.
