    I have had a look at a site called "".
    Although its "guestbook" (lists posts from viewers) is a bit thin, the factsheet displays are quite good and might repay a brief read if you've 15 mins. free.

    Thanks Jeffrey for your lead to this website - the information is clearly set out and provides excellent guidance.

    Here's a direct link to the index page of the

    Commonhold and Leasehold Reform

    Any advice or suggestions given in my posts are intended for guidance only and not a substitute for completing full searches on this forum, having regard to the advice of others, or seeking appropriate professional opinion.
    Without Plain English Codes of Practice and easy to complete Prescribed Forms the current law is too complex and is thus neither fair to good tenants nor good landlords.


      Has anyone actually dealt with a commonhold? Interested to hear if you have.

      As a conveyancing solicitor I believe the information given in the post to be useful (provided it relates to property in England & Wales) but I accept no liability except to fee-paying clients.

      • Dealing with Adverse Possession objection
        by Ken_Johnson
        I bought a property 3 years ago which was in AP of a small strip of unregistered land next to it since the 1960s.
        I recently applied for AP and all was going fine until recently an objection was received by a neighbour with a lot of spurious and false claims.
        The letter received is a B193(A)...

        Good to hear an update.
        To clarify: you informed land registry your opinion is that the objection is groundless.
        did you also send my letter template to your neighbours?...

        Apologies for the delay.

        Wrote to the two objectors, twice, never heard anything back. One of the objectors tried threatening physical action, reported to Police, crime reference number obtained. Informed Land Registry that as they are not responding, it's best to go to tribunal.

        I have now heard back from the management agent who is also the secretary of the management company that, they were not the secretary at the time I became the owner and was not passed over details from previous agents.

        Hi All,

        Sorry if this question was already addressed previously.

        I hold a leasehold property back in years ago and I am now planning to sell my property.

        What comes to my mind is that when I have a look of the previous LPE1 / M&A there was mentioned a Membership...

      • Selling with tenant in situ - no EIRC
        by meehr
        Hi folks, slightly worried and looking for your view:

        I’m selling my old flat with tenant in situ, and just discovered that we have been non compliant since April on the EIRC - my earlier interpretation had been that we didn’t need to do an EIRC until a new tenancy.

        Your buyer needs to get their own EICR done before they buy

        I dont think you could be retrospectively prosecuted if you were no longer the owner when it came to light that there is no EICR. I would probably get an electrician in however, to inform me what it would cost to get up to standard. You don't want to give the hypothetical buyer reasons to doubt his/her...
