    Share of freehold query


    Does anyone own a share of the freehold with one other person and if so what is the best arrangement to have for paying the building's insurance / dealing with maintenance/repairs. We are probably going to hold the freehold as individuals rather than as a company.

    Thank you for any advice you might have.


    Please refer to the following post:!-part-1=

    Best wishes

    • Reply to RTM - Admin Fees Charged by Freeholder
      by Lorimer
      There isn't much case law on this but even when an RTM is in place and it is the RTM that is responsible for dealing with consents, I believe the freeholder CAN charge a reasonable admin fee simply for the freeholder's time in reviewing the consent application. This is because the RTM company cannot...

    • RTM - Admin Fees Charged by Freeholder
      by chris1544
      We have RTM in place for our two flat building. Recently the other leaseholder put in a request to the RTM company to install an air vent. I duly wrote to the freeholder, notifying them of our intention to grant approval for the works, giving them the statutory 30 days notice.

      They have...

      Wonder if you can help... This week I have received a Court Claim form pack with what seems to include a ‘particulars of claim’ and ‘lease’ for ‘outstanding arrears of Ground rent and insurance’.

      Now this is a huge shock as I’ve not received any letters at all, no emails or phone...

    • Can I let this freehold indefinately ?
      by Boab
      Is there any reason why I cannot let a freehold flat on a two flat maisonette where there are two freeholders with a deed of covenant between the two to cover such issues as maintaining the property? There appears to be nothing in the covenant restricting renting my property out and it’s been done...

      Well but who’s to judge that intention? If I as the freeholder only want women, kids and one armed pirates in my block of flats and therefore put a restriction of use to that extent in the lease isn’t that my pretty unambiguous intention?

      Well put. I have a property with...

      FYI - I pressed and stated facts and quoted the law etc and they eventually backed down... Mega Chuffed. Didn’t even have to pay any of the legal fees or additional costs. It helps that in the lease as mentioned they had to email or send mail via recorded delivery... Their legal team agreed and dropped...

      Many flats with ground rent increasing every 10 years are not able to get a mortgage loan . Taylor Wimpey have set a side £130 Mil for correcting the ground rent demands in their leases . If your flat was built by this company, you should contact the company for correction of the lease.
