    Documentation for renovations on share of freehold flat

    We are a first floor flat, share of freehold with the ground floor flat. We both have a 999 year lease. In 2014 we did a loft conversion. We had a party wall agreement with the other share of freeholder flat, planning permission and it has all been signed off by building control. However, should we wish to sell, what else needs to be in place?
    do we need to amend the Deed and do we pay for this or share the cost with the other freeholder?
    Did we need a formal licence to alter document, or is the party wall agreement sufficient?
    Thank you

    Since it was all agreed with co Freeholder then I would think all that you might have to do is amend the deed if it needs amending.

    It seems to me co Freeholder has been helpful without any benefit so I can't see any justification in expecting any contribution.


      I think you should not ask the other freeholder to pay or share any costs for your loft conversion.

      You should consult a solicitor with your lease and ask if any addition is required for including the loft


        Thank you for your responses. We will consult w lawyer to have the Deed updated with the new floor plan.

          The first words used in that clause confirm that the land sold off in 1935 was no longer liable to pay any part of the fee farm rent because the seller accepted full responsibility to pay all of the rent, because he was continuing to retain the remainder of the land that was subject to the fee farm...

          A fee farm rent is another name for a rentcharge. Despite the word "rent" appearing no tenancy is involved. The rent is also charged on other land. The intention back in 1935 was that the seller would continue to pay the whole of the charge.

          What you need to do is enquire if the...

          It look like that there is possibility to buy out fee farm rent ( to be confirmed by conveyancing solicitor). Do You have any idea estimated cost of buying out grount rent ? 108f a year at this moment.

          You need to ask your conveyancing solicitor ( a local to the property) to explain how to understand and remove the fee farm rent ?

          Just a quick follow up. When you say they have title do you mean they can claim adverse possession?
          if they have already been granted the rights in deed from years ago how could they now now claim its their land.
          Sorry if I am missing something it just confuses the heck out of me.
