Can lease be changed just because the directors want to change it?

    You appear to be doing quite well so far, it is just a question of not giving up when obstacles are placed in your way. That is what others hope to achieve and they should not be allowed to succeed.

    If the managing agent is not allowing you to inspect the documents, that will work in your favour, just keep a record of requests and replies.

    I would concentrate on the managing agent at this stage and make a formal complaint regarding the failure to deal with repairs and reported problems, the lack of transparency and the insurance arrangements. If you do not receive a satisfactory reply, I would refer the complaint to the Ombudsman for the redress scheme to which he belongs.

    It looks like you should prepare to take a case to the FTT but at the moment you do not seem to be ready, you need to obtain further information and copy documents.

    I would avoid personal meetings with the directors at this stage and make all communication by email or letters so that you may refer to them at the FTT hearing if necessary. Meetings are only likely to add to your stress levels.

        A ground rent of £150 per annum increasing by 50% every 10 years until it reaches £3,844.33 with 2 years to go before it makes its first doubling would cost around £7,600 plus 0.33% of the value of the flat to have a statutory lease extension

        One of the difficulties in proposing any...

        by sgclacy
        Once the Land Registry have closed the title and a new lease granted there is no redress for the lessee seeking relief from forfeiture

        The land registry will write to any party shown in the charges register and the tenant before closing the title - therefore illustrating the need to make...

      • 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...

      • 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...

        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’.

        by ChrisDennison
        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...
