Application for determination of service charge

Dean was instructed by the freeholders of a property to obtain a determination of the service charge payable by one of the leaseholders within the building, to enable his clients to begin proceedings for the forfeiture of the lease. The leaseholder had failed to pay the service charge for four years, and the freeholders’ previous efforts to obtain payment had failed.

The application was granted and Dean was also successful in seeking the leaseholder to pay the freeholders’ costs of the application.
