    Chancery St James or Chime Properties - Extending Lease

    Hello, I'm trying to contact Chancery St James to explore exending my lease. However, it seems that Chancery St James are no longer an active company and listening to their voice message, it suggests that a company called Homes Brand Online are now managing the lease. Investigating Homes Brand Online doesn't bring up much, they don't have a website or can't find any contact details.

    I believe my lease is with a company called Chimes Property Limited, even this organistion don't appear to have much contact numbers.

    Does anybody have any idea of contact details for either Homes Brand Online or Chimes Property Limited?

    Many Thanks


    Caution, This thread is close to the edge in terms of its potential for naming and shaming, which isn't allowed.

    According to, neither of those companies exist.


      If what you mean is Chimes Property Limited is your freeholder/lessor or head lessor they ought to be named and addressed on all invoicing under s47/48. An address in England and Wales. If the other lot are/were managing agents you'd go over their heads about extending your lease anyway.

      If Chimes don't ring out, pay £3 on the land registry for the freehold title extract and see who your freeholder is there. Maybe you got the name wrong?
      Do not read my offerings, based purely on my research or experience as a lessee, as legal advice. If you need legal advice please see a solicitor.


        The name, registered office address, and company number also need to be on the invoice, if the demand is from a company, under company law. The company number will give you the correct current name, and the registered office address must accept all official communications.


          Is this the company you wish to contact ?

            Thanks lawmaker. there is another planning application (which I refer to earlier) from a few years ago, I am trying to get a colour copy of that as it identifies the exact area existing flat owners with parking in the deeds are allowed to use, it's the forecourt so we know this is the area which he...

            We have bought a freehold flat which is one of the few flats in the building that has parking permission in the deeds. There are only a few spaces so it isn't allocated and only the flats that have it in the deeds can park in them. The person who owns the freehold to the shared areas and I assume the...

            The agent and the solicitor would definitely know what they were doing and have an idea of the costs involved. There are different ways of the agent being rewarded but obtaining proof is difficult. To be fair, the management company should be able to rely on advice given to it by an agent and it has...

            Interested to get thoughts on this issue.
            Managing Agent A has ties to solicitor B. Block Company C has a flat owner D who was in arrears of, say, £1500.
            A advises C that D must be taken to court. B runs up costs of say £8000 preparing case and in anticipation of S146 follow through....

            Does this case mean that for a residential lease failure to give notice of GR increase during the review period doesn't matter? I.e review can be at any time, even after specified review date?

Following the determination of the new rent the landlord claimed the increased rent due for the entire 13-year period between 1994 and 2007. In this case the landlord was success...

            The flat above one of our tenants has caused two separate water ingress issues to the flat below June and August, the issue is apparently either a faulty slow leaking stop cock or washing machine. They have asked to see a plumbers report and apparently there isnt one .The MA said no insurance claim...

            Good. You have an unqualified right to park a vehicle. The landlord cannot do anything which interferes with that right.

            For a claim in nuisance to succeed it would have to shown that the tenant of the flat above's actions caused the leak.

            I do not understand the MA saying this is a flat to flat dispute. If the damage was accidental it should be covered by the block insurance. Insist a claim is made.
