If the qualifying conditions are met, the landlord must serve a Section 5 Notice (the nature and timing of which will depend on the type of disposal being proposed) and follow the procedure set out in the 1987 Act. As such, mixed use property owners may wish to take a proactive approach and seek advice during the early stages of a proposed transaction, or even when a development is being designed. The lesson to be learnt is to check the date when the summons was applied for, and see whether it was more than 6 months after the relevant disposal took place.

The report was exceptionally detailed and comprehensive, very often including details and recommendations which I would not have expected e. Founded over 20 years ago, vLex provides a first-class and comprehensive service for lawyers, law firms, government departments, and law schools around the world.It is not necessary to go into details of the alleged offences here; suffice to say the defendant landlord pleaded not guilty. In an attempt to satisfy the tenants and end the litigation the landlord then transferred the freehold back into his name for no consideration. He made the whole process of achieving a party wall agreement award with my neighbour easy and stress free. However, considering the LTA 1987 from the outset when purchasing new properties or development land may avoid potential problems on a future sale.

Timing of sale of flats – a disposal prior to the exchange of contracts for the flat which would take the number of Qualifying Tenants over the 50% threshold.

The Landlord and Tenant Act 1987 (‘the 1987 Act’) gives a right of first refusal to “qualifying tenants” by prohibiting certain landlords from making certain disposals of certain premises without first offering the disposal to the “qualifying tenants” of the building. Therefore, where there is to be a disposal of existing property, it should be carefully considered as to whether the LTA 1987 applies before the property is marketed. If you rent or let a property for residential purposes, such as a flat, house, or room, you are covered by several acts, depending on your situation.

Whilst only qualifying tenants of residential flats can exercise the right, the 1987 Act expressly refers to properties containing non-residential elements, so it is important not to fall into the trap of thinking that the right only applies to blocks of flats. A list of the members’ names is available for inspection at our offices in Peterborough, Cambridge and London. The primary difference between the basis of valuation under the 1993 Act and the 1987 Act is in the treatment of ‘marriage value’. I recently contacted Peter Barry Surveryors to carry out a desktop valuation, on short notice, for a residential property that they had previously performed a detailed valuation on, a few years prior.The initial survey had to be postponed last minute due to a potential collapse in the chain, but that was no problem. The 1987 Act provides a wide definition of "qualifying tenants" which includes any tenant of a flat under a tenancy, save for some specific exceptions including business tenancies and ASTs. In mixed-use premises where the above criteria is met, the landlord cannot, for example, grant a lease of a commercial unit without first making an offer to the qualifying residential tenants.
