The Residential Leaseholders’ Handbook explains in plain language everything leaseholders and their advisers need to know in relation to long residential leases. Among the common problems it tackles are absent landlords; spiralling service charges; the right to be consulted on significant or long term service charge items; how to challenge excessive charges; how to gain control from difficult or exploitive landlords and how to set up a management company. The book begins with the legal framework of a typical ground lease and its main provisions including: responsibility for repairs, insurance and management of a building, the meaning of the covenant for "quiet enjoyment" and the termination of a lease due to overdue rent. The author explains what lenders look for in a residential lease; how leaseholders can insist that their lease is amended to meet lenders’ requirements and the issues relating to assignment, subletting and alteration of leasehold premises. Extensive use of real life scenarios, landmark cases and some fictitious case studies illustrate how leasehold law works in practice and enables readers to effectively assess their position. Written in non-technical language this book is a reliable source for leasehold management companies, managing agents, legal advisers, students and residential leaseholders.

'Wayleave' is an archaic term from the nineteenth century defined as 'a privilege enabling a person to cross another person’s land with infrastructure and with goods and chattels'. It has been applied to electricity rights because of the need to string electricity lines across land. Electricity is such a fundamental part of life that its supply is often taken for granted. In reality, the rights for electricity lines are arguably the weakest of all utilities, with the vast majority covered by wayleaves. Privatisation in the 1990s provided the opportunity to bolster wayleave rights, but it only led to a tinkering through primary legislation. The acceleration of telecommunications over the past twenty years has confused issues, with operators installing masts and adding apparatus to electricity lines. A large proportion of wayleaves are dealt with at local level, with little consistency. Coupled to this is the public concern that electricity lines have potentially serious health effects that continue to attract research and media interest. This book has been written for those involved in, or advising on, the use and development of land for transmission and distribution lines. As most people have only brief encounters with the electricity infrastructure, this guide will help to avoid the fear of the unknown. By setting out the main principles and procedures used and the relevant primary and secondary legislation in a clear and easy-to-follow way it will enable lawyers, surveyors, planners, architects, engineers and accountants to discuss the relevant issues with confidence.
