  • Freeholders breach of the lease
    surreygirl
    We had a surveyor in last year in April 2018 which said that the outside render was now porous and needed to be repaired as a matter of urgency and should be a priority. At a meeting they voted to wait for a year until people had saved up the money and also they needed to have an asbestos test done....

    Sorry but a different view. Does your lease permit improvements ? Tanking may well be considered additional to repair and maintain. The interior of the wall is usually considered the leaseholders responsibility. Tanking would solely benefit your flat, not the building. It is likely to increase...

  • Reply to Freeholders breach of the lease
    eagle2
    Normally, a freeholder has a duty to repair and lack of funds cannot be used as an excuse for delaying works,

    Whether or not the lease permits him to borrow monies and charge the cost of borrowing to leaseholders is irrelevant.

    You appear to have a valid claim against the freeholder...

    What is the nature of the freeholders? Why do they have limited assets? In the worst case, they are a residents's management company, in which case they have very little leeway, as they will have very little money of their own and very little real security for any loan. They are also unlikely to be...

  • Freeholders and Sub-tenants
    cday356
    Hello all,

    I would be grateful for some views on the following situation. We are a freeholder, and have a non-resident leaseholder who has been sub-letting his flat for more than a decade. We took over the freehold about 6 years ago. It has since come to our attention that the leaseholder...

    At what point is there a breach of the covenant for quiet enjoyment? There must come a time when the freeholder has requested access on a number of occasions and found no evidence of leaks that asking again must be considered to be unreasonable.

    If the tenant is in breach, what remedy is...

  • Tenant of Leaseholder leaving property in common parts
    TheManOnTheBus
    I own the freehold of a small building (and a couple of the leases). One of the other leaseholders as let to a tenant who despite warning will not remove property (bicycles / push chairs) from common parts.

    The leaseholder (and therefore their tenant) does not have the right under the lease...

    I am not sure it is.

    Section 12 starts: "This section applies to goods in the possession or under the control of a bailee".

    There are four key words:

    "goods": Is the bike goods? Yes, because the Act defines goods as including all chattels personal...

  • Reply to Freeholders and Sub-tenants
    leaseholder64
    Is your issue with the such deeds in general, or with the failure to restrict it to those covenants (typically the ASB ones, and in particular, excluding service charge payments) that are relevant to the sub-tenant.

    There is, I believe, a common problem that sub-landlords use standard tenancy...

    Thanks for your comments Lawcruncher,

    Regarding your first paragraph, I appreciate the further clarity on how a covenant of quiet enjoyment should be interpreted.

    Briefly regarding your second paragraph, the sub-tenants have been in occupation since 2004, so I wouldn't call...
