First-tier Tribunal Property Chamber


The First-tier Tribunal - Property Chamber (Residential Property) is the forum for dealing with matters previously brought before the (former) Leasehold Valuation Tribunal. The tribunal aims to provide easier and affordable access to resolving residential leasehold disputes between leaseholders and their landlords.

It can:

  • Determine whether a service charge or administration charge is payable – this also applies to a service charge which has already been paid
  • Vary a lease that doesn’t make adequate provision for a service charge or other charges
  • Determine whether to dispense with or to modify the landlord’s requirement to consult with leaseholders before carrying out major works and recharging leaseholders for these works via the service charge
  • Award costs where a leaseholder or landlord has acted unreasonably
