Examining the topic of service charges and management thoroughly, addressing potential issues and offering remedies in a practical step-by-step approach, this title looks at the topic from both the landlord and the tenant's point of view. Further, the contractual and statutory obligations of parties are identified and the law and procedure of arbitration, the courts and Leasehold Valuation Tribunals discussed.

With service charge claims issued by the LVT having increased more than four-fold in 2006/07 compared to 2002/03 and a raft of recent legislation there has never been a more important time to ensure you are fully up-to-date with service charges developments. Fully updated to take into account the many recent and significant legal developments, Service Charges and Management: Law and Practice:-

  • Examines recent case law, including: Holding and Management (2007)- meaning of building, Canary Riverside (2006)-the Schedule 12 costs fallacy, and Oakfern (2007)- meaning of 'service charge'.

  • Discusses new statutes and statutory instruments, including: Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002, LVT Fees Regulations 2003 and Service Charge Regulations 2007.

  • Discusses various pieces of recent Welsh service charges legislation, that have brought it up to date with that of the United Kingdom including the Service Charges (Summary of Rights and Obligations, and Transitional Provisions)(Wales) Regulations 2007 (SI 2007/3160).

  • Covers the RICS Residential Service Charge Management Code (2008) and RICS Commercial Service Charge Management Guide (2007).

  • Includes, new for this edition, a materials CD with all relevant legislation, forms and precedents, enabling easy drafting and customisation of documents.
