Hackney Leaseholders Success As Tribunal Ruled In Their Favour
Hackney Leaseholders had a taste of victory as the dispensation tribunal on the 15th July 2013 ruled in their favour:
- The proposed agreement between the Council and Hackney Homes is NOT a QLTA (Qualifying Long Term Agreement).
- Dispensation should NOT be granted.
- The Council is NOT entitled to recover costs of the tribunal proceedings as a service charge.
In the summary it was noted: “This is an organized objection to the Council’s views and in our findings justifiably so.”
Hackney Leaseholders were represented by Barrister Andrew Dymond. They were opposed to Hackney Council’s application for dispensation in appointing the ALMO Hackney Homes the long-term agreement for external repairs on their property stock.

In the meantime a big thank you to those who got involved and donated money and time. This could not have been achieved if it wasn’t for the organization We Are Hackney Council Leaseholders http://www.wearehackneycouncilleaseholders.org/
