    Does this clause in my lease mean I cannot let my property out?


    I've attached a clause which is contained in my lease, does this mean I cannot let me apartment out, i have to move location for work but do not want to sell my flat.

    It only means you can't let it out to prostitutes.


      It doesn't allow any form of multiple occupation, not even the, usually considered more benign than sub-letting, case of boarders, but it does allow you to sub-let to a single family.


        So I cannot let a room to a friend but I can let the entire property out to a couple.


          That's how I read it.

            If one is allowed to let entire property to a couple, then one can equally rent the same to a single person -- i would have thought ... (since the original 'tenant' will be away - so the single "friend" tenant wouldn't be classed as a lodger)


              In default of a more specific definition, I would expect family to be interpreted as in the 1985 Housing Act, meaning that the most distant relationship amongst those present would be nephew/niece. A family can be one person.

                We are about to buy our first property and a little disappointed by our conveyencer, despite their glowing reviews on Trust Pilot etc.

                The property was built in 2002 as a pupose built block of flats originally with 125 year leases. The vendor has lived there for 5 years and other than one...

                If you are not happy to pay the service charge , then don't buy leasehold and instead look for a freehold house

                I am a BTL leaseholder. My tenant did not send me the ground rent and service charges demands and court notices. Unlike the previous freeholder this one did not send me any papers at my residential home. Therefore the bailiffs were sent and the property taken by the freeholder. I am willing to pay all...

                You need to explain more. Why were letters sent to your tenant? Did you give the FH your actual address ? As mentioned forfeature is very rare and there would be a while host of court dates first...I assume you knew nothing of them.

                I'd get in contact with a solicitor ASAP and show him...

                I moved to a new address and totally forgot to pay my half year ground rent to E&M that is £100 on 1st March. All the letter chase were sent to my old address and I didn't get passed on by my tenants in time, only got them yesterday.

                Extra costs are only payable IF the lease allows and IF demanded correctly with Administration Charges - Summary of Rights attached..the s146 clause can't be used for amounts under £350 also note this figure can't be bumped up by admin/legal charges. From what your lease days all you may owe extra...

                I purchased a leasehold flat in 2013 (ex-Local Authority and they remained the freeholder) which had a section 20 notice estimate for £7,000 (per flat - 4 of them but we are the only...

                You are right to pursue the formal complaint against the Council and you are right to chase them on a regular basis.

                To be fair to the Council, it cannot be easy for them to deal with the complaint if documents are in the hands of the managing agents and letters and notices were issued...

                Hi there, I am looking for some advice about a formal lease extension for a flat with 66 years left on the lease.

                Based on a valuer calculation I have offered the FH a premium of £8.5k in the S42 and their counteroffer is £14.5k...which seems to also includes their fees (... the premium...

                My offer/proposal was based on the RICS valuer guidelines and report. He suggested between £8k to £10k based on the property price.
                It was a formal extension via S42, so no GR, buying a new lease, etc.

                My question is more about the process, i.e. is it just the matter of going up...
