Top Issues at LVT
This section is a summary of some of the key issues that customers raise with LEASE when considering applying to a Leasehold Valuation Tribunal (LVT). LEASE cannot help in the preparation of cases before the tribunal, and we strongly encourage parties in dispute to seek to resolve their differences through discussion/negotiation and to consider alternative dispute resolution (eg, mediation) before taking their case to the LVT.
We provide an overview of the key points to consider for each issue, and links to the relevant law, as well as references to cases that may help you understand the framework in which the issue has been addressed by the courts and tribunals.
New topics will be added and content updated on a regular basis. If you have any comments or suggestions for topics for this section, we'd like to hear from you. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
