Service Charge Summit 2017

21st Sep 2017

Tanfield are pleased to announce that we are once again hosting the Service Charge Summit, in conjunction with News on the Block.

The theme of this years summit is the impact that third parties have, or arguably should have, on the landlord and tenant relationship. Those third parties may be as diverse as Parliament; mortgage providers and residents’ management companies.

Particular challenges include:

  • Making provision for compliance with current safety, disability discrimination and energy saving regulations in a lease granted many years ago;
  • The powers and limitations of Right to Manage companies co-existing with landlords;
  • Dealing with service charge machinery that is no longer appropriate following significant alterations to a building and the granting of or surrender of leases;
  • The entitlement of a party who is both a director of the freehold company and a lessee to challenge service charges raised by the company whilst that party is a director.


  • County Hall Riverside Building, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 7PB
