    The Notice is served by new leaseholder ( or by his solicitor) on freeholder after the name of new property title holder has been registered by Land Registry.

    Thank you Lorimer and leaseholder64.

    It's actually a devolution, not an assignment, but the freeholder certainly needs to know about it.

    Yes and yes. The freeholder needs to know to whom the ground rent and service charge demands should be addressed and this is the mechanism by which the information is given to the freeholder.

  • Notice of Assignment on inherited leasehold property.

    Could anyone tell me if a Notice of Assignment has to be given to the freeholder of a leasehold property if the new leaseholder inherits the property (as opposed to purchasing it). The lease states that notice must be given "within one month of any assignment assent transfer or under lease of the demised premises", so it would appear so, but I just wanted to double-check that this is the norm. If so, am I right to assume that the freeholder's usual fee for receipting/acknowledging this notice would also be payable by the devisee (i.e. the new leaseholder)?

    With a purchase, all this is normally taken care of by the buyer's solicitors, I'm not sure if the same would apply to the inheritance case (if solicitors are involved, that is). Any shared knowledge would be greatly appreciated!

    We are the freeholders to a block of flats. We own the freehold in a limited company.

    Apparently one of the flats issued a Section 42 back in April with a date of July for any counter offers.

    Our managing agents have only just told us about this TODAY and we are way out of...

    Is the address of your managing agent the same as the address at the Land Registry for you as freeholder?

    If you believe the figure offered is too low, you could have therefore regarded the notice as invalid and that is why you have not responded. They would then have to apply to the court...

    As per lease - everyone supposed to maintain their frontages. The road is made private long time ago and there's no owners currently it is bona-vacatia now.

    Usually the scaffolding is put up by the scaffolding rental company. The roof repair work will be done by roofing company who worker may not be aware of the scaffolding on site.

    Hi All,

    I have a leaseholder that constantly refuses to pay service charges and ground rent. I’ve had endless court cases but they are slow and I’ve then struggled to get court fees back which have been added to everyone’s service charges including mine!

    I’ve decided...

    You can check online at Land Registry website for the name of current freeholder of your building. You may have to pay £3 by credit card to download. Also check the listing of company at Companies House website.

    I am representing a group of investors in a property where the developer/freeholder has gone into administration. Two questions - does the administrator now technically own the freehold? and can they demand payment for repairs to the building that the freeholder should have carried out in order to protect...
