Latest Property Disputes Q&As

Q&As
A landlord has unreasonably withheld consent to an alienation request on the basis of rent arrears which are not owed. The landlord has also unlawfully re-entered the premises and as a result caused significant damage to the tenant’s stock.
Q&As
A mortgagee seeks possession of a residential property owned and occupied by the borrower. However the loan facility letter is based on a commercial or business loan. Accordingly the legal charge secured against the property is also substantially commercial in nature. Does this affect issuing possession proceedings? Is the mortgagee bound by the Housing Protocol and the Administration of Justice Act 1970 or can it proceed by way of a lasting power of attorney?
Q&As
Does failing to notify a tenant of the change of landlord (even though it was years ago and the tenant has been paying rent and has communicated with the new landlord) prevent the valid service by the new landlord of a section 21 notice and subsequent successful possession proceedings?
Q&As
If a landlord has served a residential service charge demand with the old summary of rights and obligations instead of the correct ones which have been used since 2007, does this render the demand invalid?
Q&As
Where a developer has failed to refund the deposit and reservation fee to a buyer as required following the buyer rescinding a sale agreement, can a charge be secured against the development without the need for court proceedings or will the buyer require a County Court judgment before it can register a charge against the development?
