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.
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.
