Introducing: Graphs of Relativity

graphs logo

Graphs of Relativity is a new online application. The site calculates the unexpired term of a lease, or uses an already known unexpired term, and then calculates and tabulates the relativity with reference to published graph data. With a PDF and print function, the application can be used on a case-by-case basis. There is also the facility to enter a property address for further referencing.

Developed BY Valuation Surveyors FOR Valuation Surveyors, we hope you find this resource useful, and invite your comments, suggestions and feedback as we continue to develop and improve the application.

First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber): new service

In response to the change of the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal into the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber), which came into effect on 1 July 2013, myleasehold ltd are introducing an expert witness service committed to dealing with Tribunal matters.

From now on, our Tribunal department will be headed by Mr Ivan Taylor BSc FRICS. Ivan is a Chartered Surveyor with over 25 years’ experience dealing with residential property disputes, specialising in leasehold reform and service charge matters.

Ivan is an integral part of myleasehold’s professional team. As a result, he will be involved from the outset in the difficult cases and when a Tribunal hearing seems likely. In the forum of our general internal discussions he will be informed of outstanding issues in dispute on a case-specific basis.

Notwithstanding directions being issued, the myleasehold team will continue to negotiate, as our objective is to reach a settlement without the need for the matter to be heard in a Tribunal.

Fees

Our fees for undertaking work in advance of a tribunal are charged at an hourly rate of £295 plus VAT. In the event that the matter were to be heard at a Tribunal and Ivan were to attend the hearing, the fee would be £950 plus VAT for a half day and £1,650 plus VAT for a full day.

For further details or enquiries, please contact Mark Wilson or Ivan.

ERMAs

We are delighted to announce that we have won the award for Valuers of the Year at the prestigious Enfranchisement and Right to Manage Awards 2013. The ERMAs, now in their 5th year, recognise professional excellence in leasehold reform work.

We were presented with the award at a ceremony held at Quaglinos on 6 June. The whole team were in attendance to accept the prize and we couldn’t have been more thrilled.

The Valuers of the Year accolade is awarded to Valuers who act for leaseholders and/or freeholders in enfranchisement matters, and the judging criteria included depth of applied knowledge and expertise, excellence in client communications, marketing and innovation.

“By winning this highly contended award, our innovative and transparent approach to business has been recognised. We have a free-to-use online lease extension calculator and promote transparency whenever possible,” says Mark Wilson, myleasehold’s Managing Director. “We have had a busy year, and are very glad to see all our hard work paying off. The sector is modernising in both valuation and legal services and we are committed to introducing other products and services as part of the modernising process.”

‘buy now’ feature added to website

We have a very exciting new addition to our site – you can now purchase your Fast Track Valuation Report for a lease extension online in a matter of minutes, via PayPal.

It is the quickest, most cost-effective way of finding out what you should be paying for your lease extension.

Simply fill out the form, process your payment and within two business days you will receive a valuation report along with two valuations: one which can be used as an opening offer in negotiations with your freeholder, and one for what your lease extension is ultimately worth, based on your provided opinion of the property’s “long lease value” (i.e. what the property would sell for on the market if it had a lease of 100+ years unexpired).

Read more about the Fast Track Valuation and what you will receive.

See our pricing and buy your report now.
