Avoidance of litigation leads to a win-win situation

Fay Cavey-Wilcox

The brief was to challenge a £250k service charge item relating to the cost of a replacement air conditioning system following legislation against the use of R22 refrigerant.

As well as identifying the correct grounds for legal challenge, Lambert Smith Hampton proposed an alternative solution that voided litigation altogether and generated further savings for the client.

The result was a restructured lease amending the service charge provisions without the need for litigation.

Added value:

  • Healthy landlord/tenant relationship meaning no litigation costs
  • Additional saving of £270,000 for the client
  • Enhanced investment value for the landlord
  • Improved and modernised building with brand new air-conditioning plant for the occupier
