Mundania Court
How did we do it?
This collective enfranchisement group had all but given up hope. Then they met Ringley. Ringley led them to save £374,000 and get them the freehold saving them £569,000 against the Freeholders Notice and £374,000 against the best their previous Solicitor and Valuer could manage. The issue boiled down to the value of 4 telecoms masts. Ringley put together a case based on the diminishing long term value of roof masts due to mergers and reducing space requirements.

Saved £1,614

Haverstock hill

Haverstock Hill
How did we do it?
Water ingress led the Basement Flat's floor to collapse. As the cause of the collapse could not be easily identifiable our client, agreed to investigate. An independent survey confirmed the Ringley surveyor's opinion that a drainage channel under the conservatory had caused water to enter the space under the floor. As the conservatory is not the responsibility of Management Company we saved our client and other Leaseholders £1,614 in professional fees.

Saved £6,700
