Court of Appeal overturns leaseholder consultation ruling

Court of Appeal overturns leaseholder consultation ruling

The court of appeal has overturned the decision of the High Court in Philips v Francis.

For the last two years there has been considerable anxiety amongst landlords, property managers and leaseholders regarding the interpretation of the meaning of 'qualifying works'. Today's ruling provides much needed clarity to the position and will be welcomed by all those involved in major works across the industry.
