    Deed of Variation

    I am hoping i am in the correct forum!!

    We have been selling our leasehold property for the last 5 months. We knew we would have to get a deed of variation completed with Taylor Wimpey and that part of it has gone relatively smoothly.
    My solicitor has tried to make an application to have it registered and land registry ad has been told that there are two earlier applications on the title that need to be completed first.
    We have been advised that this could take up to 26 weeks plus to complete.

    Can any one advise me of whether we can exchange and/or completed before it is registered with land registry or is anyone had any advice at all i would be grateful

    Thank you

    Hi All,

    This is my first post :-)
    I found this forum whilst I was googling about freehold insurance and thought I would ask you guys for opinions about my purchase.

    So I'm in the process of buying a detached house (built 1911) consisting 2 flats with separate entrances...

    Thanks leaseholder64 that is very useful information.

    So a couple of hypothetical situations: and I will make LOTS of assumptions that are most probably wrong.

    Lets say that I have perfectly good freeholder buildings insurance.

    The ground floor flat takes down...

    The lease is only void if:

    1) The freeholder gets a ruling from the FTT that there has been a breach; abd

    2) The freeholder then issues a notice of forfeiture; and

    3) The leaseholder either doesn't seek relief from the courts or the courts don't grant relief....

    The interior is listed even though it isn't mentioned: "While some entries will make no reference to the interior, unless it is expressly excluded, it is covered by the listing and may be significant."

    I’m in a process of buying a flat inside a grade 2 listed building. The process was going fine until I noticed the floor plan in the lease doesn’t match up with the current floor plan in real life. I can see that there has been structural changes made the flat in the past. Our solicitor has questioned...

    The description online mentions nothing about the interiors inside the building, does it means the inside of the building is not protected and there’s no consent needed to do internal changes in future? We also want to update the floor plan in the lease agreement. Do we do this after the purchase...

    You can search the listing records to find out which parts of the building are listed. As said it may only be the outside appearance or could be some particular features both externally and internally. The listing will describe what they have listed.

    Dear John

    In brief, the clause requires the freeholder to take out buildings insurance with a reputable insurer for the full reinstatement value that must meet the requirements of the Council of Mortgage Lenders. It provides latitude for the freeholder to insure against any other risk in...
