Head lessee breach of covenants?Make Text Bigger
Can I ask what the remedies are when the Head Lessee in a block of flats breach the lease covenants?
The head lessee is also in charge of managing the block (RTM is not possible due to the 25% rule in a mixed use block, i.e. commercial on the ground floor and residential above).
I cannot give my name due to intimidation from the head lessee and their Managing agent.

“If your landlord breaches the terms of the lease you can take legal action against them to court. This is becuase the lease is a contract between two parties (the leaseholder and the landlord) and any actions for breach can be enforced via the courts.
If a leaseholder is successful on a claim for breach of the lease they can be awarded damages, a court order to force the landlord to comply with their obligations in the lease, or to carry out any particular tasks or obligations. The successful party can also try to claim the costs that they have incurred from bringing the claim.
