    Opinion on advice to landlord from its agent
    by MartynSE5
    I am one of four directors of a limited company that owns a building where the company has 67 long leases, and the company's affairs are managed by an agent.

    Our agent asked for our approval to write an aggressive letter to our leaseholders, enforcing a particular covenant and threatening...

    Selling Lease to Freehold Ltd Company
    by kennyrm
    I own 3 of 4 flats (leases) in a building and am 75% shareholder in the Ltd Company that owns the freehold. My neighbour (who owns the other lease and 25%) wants to sell up. I am interested in buying. Can he sell his lease to the Ltd Company instead of me privately, making me 100% shareholder, and owner...

    by gkasus

    Agents’ fees increasing above the board
    by Lots on
    I rent a 3 bed flat to students via agents, fully managed. They take 11%. Just had the email saying that due to changes in the legislation they are passing their lost fees on to me. Specifically: letting fee £350 plus VAT, tenant referencing fee £50 +VAT per student. Inventory and check in £200+...

    Tenant has "sole right to use garden"? Different lease wording
    by sarahbrowne

    So we've been comparing our flat's lease with the leases of the above two properties... and they don't match. We have a ground floor mansion flat that backs onto a small fenced area/garden. The 2 flats above us in our block do not have direct access. The Freeholders have sent out letters...

    18-month rule and invalid demands
    by MartynSE5
    I would appreciate opinions on this situation, please:

    - Demands for service charge and ground rent for 2018 were sent in December 2017
    - Delays in auditing accounts for 2018 caused the landlord's agent to send 20b notices in June 2019, predicting a £30k shortfall

    Freeholder Issues
    by bluemonday735

    I am having trouble with a freeholder and the way things are being run in my building. It's all very complicated so I will try and stick to the bare bones.

    My block has 7 flats with one guy who is the majority sharer of freehold (not over 50%). I have one share.

    rough cost of repairing a basin
    by Battered landlord
    Tenants have cracked a basin (it was new when they moved in). The damages outweigh the deposit I have. I got a quote of £200 for a new sink, including labour and disposal of old sink). They have asked how much to just repair it. Can anyone give me a rough idea? Thanks very much.
