A full and frank discussion this morning with Andrew Kafkaris, of Bruton Street Management, who provided evidence for Baroness Gardner at last week’s House of Lords debate. Understandably Richard, who used to be the RA chairman at Millbank Court, in Pimlico – which he now manages – has strong views about leaseholders being aware of what they have signed up to rather than complaining that it is all so unfair afterwards. He has interesting views on how the RTM process could be improved, as well as the expensive and convoluted LVT process. Hopefully, Bruton Street Management will become accredited to LKP in due course, and we will shortly be publishing his article.
