Leasehold Advisors

The more complicated the law, the more advisors are needed to sort it out

The experts who are employed in disputes are sometimes also the rule makers whose rules led to the disputes in the first place.

All these professions are needed to service leasehold tenure and may be employed by either side in a dispute:

Accountants
Architects
Barristers
Building surveyors
Cost construction consultants
Expert witnesses
Forensic accountants
Housing and Tenancy Relations Officers
Managing Agents
Quantity surveyor
Solicitor
Structural engineer
Valuer

In addition the following may also be needed:

Building Control
Companies House
Fraud Officers
Land Registry
Police
Trading Standards Officers
VAT Officers

Finally new businesses are now being developed to help leaseholders use the legal system. Intermediaries have become necessary to help organise enfranchisement and lease extensions. Most of the rules (laws) which in theory, protect leaseholders cannot be used due to lack of expertise, time, money, or support.
