    Lease Extension - Landlord

    Hello everyone. I wonder if someone can assist me. I am a landlord and am granting a lease extension to my leaseholder. The Leaseholder was really pressing me to get everything agreed. We managed to agree all terms and then once that was done, the leaseholder went quiet on me. My solicitor then served a 21 day notice under the regulations. The leaseholder has not completed and my solicitor is now saying that even though the 21 days has expired we still have to wait for the full 4 months. It seems a bit nonsensical that we could serve notice and then still not be able to do anything when it expires.

    Does anyone have any experience of this and is it the case that the notice doesn't really have any bite and I just have to wait out the full 4 months.

    Thank you.

    Hi our lease states the FH can take 15% of total expenditure for management fees.
    They have set up a separate company and have charged ££3.5k on £16k expenditure.

    If that is the case, it is a simple matter to send 2 separate emails, one asking for the RTA to be recognised and a second one from a leaseholder asking for the information

    He wasn't making the request as a leaseholder, but as an RTA. I don't know why he didn't make a request as an individual leaseholder, but as an RTA, the RTA has to be be recognized by the freeholder, and the freeholder can withdraw that recognition at any time, except if an FTT has ruled that the TA...

    Their response is absurd, as a leaseholder you are entitled to receive the information requested. A separate legal entity appears to manage the property and a reasonable management fee for the service provided may be recovered under the service charge provisions. The freeholder is not entitled to charge...

    Thanks Gordon999 we are aware the FH MA are one and the same, I made that point in my first post. What we cant understand is that they think they can do as they please, and to comment we are not fit to be involved in the RTA without is ludicrous....
