Flats let on long leases present a range of risks and responsibilities for those surveyors and managing agents who manage buildings containing such flats or who advise the persons with those management responsibilities.

Moreover, the sale and purchase of flats has become a key growth area, particularly among first time buyers.

Spread over 2 dates, this live broadcast session is aimed at surveyors and property professionals responsible for residential leasehold management.

  • Non-compliance with the consultation requirements and seeking dispensation from those requirements
