    Matt Pike ran a successful 30-acre fishing complex from his freehold property,Fishy Farm,In Devon. The Farm consisted of 12 Fishing Lakes and several conttages.

    In 1997,Matt sold the freehold to 10 acres of his land,including 3 lakes and Carp Cottage, To John Rudd

    1)to use the property for residential purposes only
    2) to contribute 25% of the cost towards the upkeep and maintanance of the water purification sysytem serving the lakes at Fishy Farm and Carp Cottage
    3)to maintain the otter proof fence on the eatern boundry of the property and
    4)not to keep any fish eating pets

    in 2005 Matt Sold Fishy Farm to Ted Cod

        You need to read-up on the rules about how the benefit and burden of covenants devolve. Also, try an LZ search on 'Covenants'.

            Due to the purchase of a freehold (shared 50/50), We need to vary the leases to accommodate the changes for our own purpose. We have be told that there is a fee of 750 pounds per lease, this does not include legal fees.

            How possible is it to do this process ourselves so to avoid legal...

            You will need to sign as both leaseholder and trustee for the freehold. I assume this will need to be done as a deed, so you will need to get the signatures witnessed. If there is a mortgage associated with either property, you will need to pay the mortgagee for approval and they may insist on a ...

            You can have a meeting of the 2 freeholders and agree to terminate the collection of ground rent and whatever minors actions which you want . The items agreed by both parties would be entered into a document signed and dated by both of you as variations to the lease which you could send to Land Registry...

            Hi, I am selling an empty house without a tenant who moved out recently. The Estate agent told me the prospective buyer would live in the house.

            You can ask, but 24hours is irresponsible.
            But it takes as long as it takes for a solicitor to VERIFY you or he has the funds, then throw the keys into the estate agent that sold the house.What is YOUR RUSH ? for 24 hours.
            no need to answer as 24 hours is unacceptable.

            Can I ask solicitor to set interval between exchange of contracts and completion to be 24 hours maximum?

            And, are there any penalties for the other party if they fail to complete on set day? Can I call off sell if completion does not happen when it should and drags on?
