Exceptional result for Lewis Nedas Law's Commerical & Litigation Department

papersProperty litigation specialist Annabelle Randell and Head of Commercial & Litigation Ian Coupland have achieved an outstanding result within 48 hours of instruction, successfully protecting their client’s properties valued in excess of £100,000,00 from repossession.

Our client contacted Annabelle and Ian early on a Thursday morning, informing them that he was in receipt of a letter from his landlord confirming that forfeiture proceedings had been progressed in respect of approximately £2,000.00 in unpaid services charges. A possession order had already been obtained and a bailiff’s warrant was to be executed that following Monday morning in order to formally repossess of our client’s properties.

Within 24 hours of instruction, Annabelle and Ian successfully reached an agreement with the landlord’s solicitors for our client to be granted relief from forfeiture, the bailiff’s warrant to be withdrawn, and for the lease to be restored as if it had never been forfeited in the first place, so enabling our client’s tenant to continue to occupy the property.

By acting so quickly in negotiating a fair and reasonable settlement, and in the process avoiding the increased cost of unnecessary court applications, we managed to preserve the status quo to the benefit of our client as otherwise the financial consequences to our client would have been grave.

Lewis Nedas Law are proud of their achievements for this and many other clients who find themselves in similar circumstances. If you find yourself in a strained relationship with your landlord or tenant please contact Ian Coupland on 02073872032 or icoupland@lewisnedas.co.uk.
