Service Charge Heads Up: Where Is Best Practice?

CPT has been running training events on service charges since 1994. In those days, best practice was defined by a non-compulsory service charge code, agreed upon and promoted in unison by a number of property bodies. In 2019 it emerged as an RICS Professional Statement, which was mandatory and since it was accepted across the service charge industry, anyone – whether a RICS member or not – was going to be judged by whether they followed it. It had teeth in as much as anyone who was non-compliant had the threat of sanctions and public humiliation. Is it any wonder why it’s one of the top free downloads from the RICS website?

This course is intended for surveyors, investors, occupiers and all those involved in rent review and lease renewal negotiations or commercial property management generally.

Landlords' Consents

In dealing with landlords’ consents the focus is usually on what is, or is not reasonable on the landlord’s part. This recording considers the up-to-date caselaw on this aspect. It is important to be aware of practical and procedural factors which have an influence on the outcome, whether or not a disputed application ends up in court. Going about things the wrong way can seriously undermine your negotiating position. The module examines relevant Protocols, consider what formal requirements might apply and the conduct of applications more widely. The types of consent addressed will include alienation, alterations and change of use.

Dealing with Informal Occupation

Over the last five or six years of economic and political uncertainty and turbulence, many landlords have tended to prioritise income over other aspects of property management. They may often have been prepared to accept occupiers of less than ideal quality, and to overlook the fact that terms of occupation have not been regularised. This is understandable in the short-term, but may lead to problems later on, as regards identifying what sums may be recoverable from the occupier, and ultimately the ability to recover possession. This module considers how occupation can be documented quickly and economically for short-term, low-value lettings, in the light of guidance from recent caselaw on the characteristics of licences to occupy and tenancies at will. It will also consider strategies to untangle the knot when problems have arisen.

Tenant Insolvency & Landlords’ Rights

There are many different kinds of insolvency procedure and while some are highly restrictive of the actions a landlord might wish to take, others are not. It is not enough to settle for the information that the tenant has ‘gone bust’ and simply wait to see what payment, if any, emerges. Landlords and their advisers need to be aware of the forms insolvency and pre-insolvency procedures may take, what options remain open and the effective routes to maximising payment of rent and other sums, or obtaining possession if required. This recording takes a practical approach to the issues raised by tenant insolvency.
