Can ‘Major Works’ be used by freeholder to gain possession?Make Text Bigger
The lease says I as a leaseholder am entitled to stay in my flat while major works are carried out. That the only way for the freeholder to buy you out is with a compulsory purchase order.
Shelter says that major works cannot be used to gain vacant possession of the tenants flats so they can sell them on long 999 leases. Even sending a leaflet suggesting they must move out is unlawful eviction.
Are there any circumstances where a freeholder can take tenants and leaseholders to court to obtain possession of their flats by way of an injunction?
If through extortion a leaseholder agrees to give the freeholder possession of his flat four years years, by signing an injunction without going into court, would this be malicious prosecution and the an offence has been committed.
What would the offence be apart from unlawful eviction?
