My landlord wants to employ a new cleaner. Does he need to consult me before he does so?

A landlord must consult the leaseholders before entering into a qualifying long term agreement (QLTA) for the provision of services such as cleaning, gardening or lift maintenance. A QLTA is an agreement entered into by the landlord with a contractor for a period of more than 12 months where the amount payable by any one leaseholder exceeds £100 in any one year.

Certain contracts are not included. For instance, contracts of employment.

If consultation is not undertaken the landlord cannot recover more than £100 per year from any individual leaseholder unless the Tribunal has dispensed with the requirement to consult.

You may require the services of a solicitor, a surveyor or a managing agent.
