Residential Leasehold Update: Dealing with Defective Leases – In-House Training

IQ Legal Training has developed this course to address the changes by the Competition and Markets Authority (the CMA) in respect of defective leases and ground rent, to help individuals navigate the new regulations.

On 19th March 2021 the CMA announced a requirement to Countryside and Taylor Wimpey to remove ground rent review provisions that compel leaseholders to pay double the existing ground rent every 10 or 15 years of the term. The CMA is still considering the position of Barratt Developments and Persimmon Homes to determine whether similar action is required.

This course will examine key issues when dealing with defective residential leases generally and onerous ground rent provisions in particular.

We will consider:

  • The impact of the CMA findings
  • The practicalities of varying residential leases
  • Dealing with difficult landlords – Section 35 and Section 37 Landlord and Tenant Act 1987 applications to the Lower Tribunal
  • Other solutions to defective leases

Training can either be delivered in person at your place of business or via live webinar to suit your requirements.  

Should you opt to have your in-house training delivered by live webinar, our specialist systems give us the option to provide you with recordings and course materials which allows you and your team to refer back to the training via our website at any time should you wish to do so. Alternatively, if any of your team are unable to attend the live in-house training these facilities mean that you don’t have to worry about them missing out and you can go about your day, reassured by the knowledge that they can carry out their required training at a time to suit your business needs.  

For face-to-face training, unfortunately it is not possible for us to provide recordings of the sessions however, all course training materials will still be provided.  

Certificates of completion are also provided for delegates attending in-house training sessions.
