Jonathan Tawse Solicitor (Havant Branch)

Ian Peach : Coffin Mew LLP
With many years' experience working in property law, Jon Tawse is one the South's most knowledgeable legal experts in all matters involving or connected with Leasehold Enfranchisement acting for both Landlord and Tenant From lease extensions, to collective enfranchisement and the right to manage claims, Jon works closely with a number of specialist surveyors both locally and in London and the suburbs. He has also dealt with a number of leasehold house enfranchisement cases under the 1967 Act. These are quite rare in the South He keeps up-to-date with enfranchisement legislation, County Court proceedings and most importantly decisions of the First Tier Property Tribunals. 'There have been a number of important decisions in recent years specifically in relation to deferment rates outside London,' he explains. 'It has been a controversial area and a number of important cases have influenced the costs associated with individual lease extensions'. It is a very fast evolving area of law and keeping abreast of current trends is vital in order to provide sound legal and practical advice In recent years, there has been a strong interest in enfranchisement work and Jon notes that 'clients often carry out preliminary research through the Leasehold Advisory Service and other excellent online sources before embarking on the legal process' Whilst the law is complex in this area Jon believes it is of equal importance to understand the position of the parties since frequently time and money can be saved by agreeing a settlement which may make sense to both parties.
