The landlord and tenant and dispute resolution teams attended the FPRA (Federation of Private Residents Associations) AGM at Kensington Town Hall on Monday 10th November 2014, where Mark Chick and Chris Macartney ran workshops on extending your lease and/or buying your freehold. Mark Chick is an Honorary adviser to the FPRA.
Other members of the teams dealt with enquiries from leaseholders at what was a well-attended event and the panel discussed a number of interesting issues including the regulation of managing agents, the number of leasehold properties in England and Wales and the impact of the Competition and Markets Authority’s review of this sector.
The FPRA held an open meeting prior to their AGM where the speakers included Keith Hill MP talking about the impact of the ARMA-Q scheme for managing agents.
There were also advice surgeries and seminars as well as general advice provided in a ‘marketplace’ arena.
