    Leasehold Sublet

    IMG_20190423_230243.jpg Hi
    I have a 2 bed leasehold flat which I now want to rent out and am checking the lease doc to see if any restrictions.
    Attached are paragraphs which I think may be relevant and would appreciate your view please.

    In para (g) it says not to underlet of PART only of the flat. Does that mean I can let the whole flat?

    Also in section 5 it says that no signs can be put outside other then for sale or TO LET!?

    Thank you kindly in advance.

    You can let the whole property but would not be allowed to let only part of it.

      Thank you for your prompt reply.
      I have just found one more para which mentions that flat is to be used as a private residence. Does your first answer still apply?
      Thank you kindly

        Being a private residence just further restricts the sort of sub-let, e.g. definitely excludes AirBNB These are all very standard terms.

          The one family restriction, means you cannot use it for sharers, and probably requires you to have a no lodgers clause.

              I live on the ground floor of a 4 story owner-occupied block. 9 flats on the ground floor have a patio outside their property surrounded by communal landscaping. The lease shows the patio area as deck access and states it is for the exclusive access of that property and it is not 'to be used to store...

              "The exclusive right to use the terrace edged blue on the Plan 2 for the reasonable purpose intended"

              That reads a bit oddly. If that is all there is, it has mean you can use the terrace to do the sort of thing you expect pople to do on a terrace.

              Generally you don't want a situation where part of an estate has reverted to the Crown, and you do want a situation where someone can be made to pay for maintaining the surrounding land.

              Also, if there were someone to enforce against, the council might well enforce using anti-social behaviour...

              What we need is the exact wording in the lease as to what rights you have over the patio.

              This is all highly confusing.

              There is a lease -- why is it void???

              I cannot imagine that a lease (the contract) simply becomes void if the freeholder becomes bankrupt (or ceases to exist in some form) and if the thing they owned becomes owned by anyone or anything. If that...

              It is not entirely clear cut as the management company is still the responsible person for safety issues.

              Good morning, back again after a long absence. So to confirm how the patio can be used, I contacted the landlord directly a year ago and they confirmed they had no issue with me having plants or furniture on the patio, they confirmed to the managing agent also and that as far as they were concerned...
