Can I (tenant) challenge my landlord’s service charge?
By law, the service charge is required to be reasonable. If you feel as if the service charge is not appropriate, you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to determine this.
Can a landlord forfeit a lease without a court order?
If you breach the terms of the lease, your landlord many be able to forfeit the lease. However, this is not possible for residential or mixed-use property where the landlord is not allowed to enter without a court order.
Can a tenant withhold from paying rent?
This depends on the wording of the lease. It’s important you seek the counsel of an experienced and well-informed solicitor to talk you through the legal jargon and help you understand your rights.
