    Limitation - Six v Twelve years

    Everyones favourite question is back.

    A recent UT decision is here >

    And the winner is............*drum roll*..12 years..probably

    The conclusion is that the law says its 12 years but an FTT still has the power to strike out a claim for being unreasonable if the LH waiting so long to make a claim, which is kind of fair but many LH, me included, didn't sit there twiddling their thumbs 10 years ago, its just that we were completely ignorant of our rights.

    I note that they mention Section 32 of the Limitation Act, one of my personal faves now, as I used it successfully to claim back OVER 12 years of GR overpayments.
    Advice given is based on my experience representing myself as a leaseholder both in the County Court and at Leasehold Valuation Tribunals.

    I do not accept any liability to you in relation to the advice given.

    It is always recommended you seek further advice from a solicitor or legal expert.

    Always read your lease first, it is the legally binding contract between leaseholder and freeholder.
