As well as identifying the correct grounds for legal challenge, Lambert Smith Hampton proposed an alternative solution that voided litigation altogether and generated further savings for the client.

The result was a restructured lease amending the service charge provisions without the need for litigation.

Added value:

  • Healthy landlord/tenant relationship meaning no litigation costs
  • Additional saving of £270,000 for the client
  • Enhanced investment value for the landlord
  • Improved and modernised building with brand new air-conditioning plant for the occupier
