    On another thread I've suggested trying Swarblaw forum which I've found excellent. It has numerous law forums including one on Company law.

      It should be the surveyor rather than the conveyancer who picks up that the property has a dpc.

      It is down to the conveyancer to check the planning title, but what he cannot do is guess what changes have been made to a property. If a conveyancer is told, for example, that a property has an extension, he can make the necessary enquiries.

        The OP would already know that from the other multitude of threads he/she has posted on the same scenario/topic (with trivial variation). Time wasted.

          See your other thread for lawcruncher's similar response. Moderator2 the various threads (about 4) should probably be merged.

            it would appear that in another court case that unless the lease covenants state what needs to be repaired and maintained ie structural foundations and damp then some work could be seen as improvements and some judge said that the freeholder can not expect to be given back an improvement to the property so if damp proofing is not in the lease it may well be classed as an improvement however I am not convinced about that as damp effects the property foundations of the building.

            Tanking does not protect the foundations (nor is there any reason it would given the position of application). If anything in can make them worse. Therefore this argument is not a valid one.

              And the question is?

              Please please do not post any more one liner threads on the same overall scenario, with so little content as to make no feasible meaningful response possible. What does "not insuring properly" mean? See numerous other threads on insurance.

                You appear to have raised the same point in previous threads, the response is likely to be the same.

                  I think Andrew makes a valid point. You need professional advice from a surveyor ( solicitor ?) well versed in leasehold law.
                  Tanking is an issue in some of my threads. You end up going round in circles unless you have authoritative opinion which is on the legal AND building issues.

                    Andrew...as a flat owner also trying to help another flat owner we have found that as time goes on more issues are arising and whilst they come under the banner of say insurance, the issues are different hence the different posts so one post was about insurance commission, another was about insurance not being put in place for a building which has suffered movement so this is a different issue...

                    yes they all come under insurance but they are different issues hence they cant be all posted at once because they come up at different times and now we have another insurance question about running a business which is not allowed and may affect the insurance.

                    the intention is to get help on different points. Fair enough if all the queries come up at once then they could all be posted as one thread however that has not been the chain of events so far..so hence they have not been posted all at once..

                      Marriage value is payable in the compensation if the existing lease has fallen below 80 years remaining. It may benefit older leases if leaseholders are not required to pay the legal and surveyor costs for both sides.

                      eagle2,

                      The management company is, though, specifically varying a restrictive clause in the lease. On that basis, I believe it needs a formal deed of variation to be lodged. Is that not correct?

                      Hi,

                      Hoping someone can advise. I am leaseholder and the landlord is a local council. my property is a flat and there are about 55 flats spread out over 3 floors.

                      Now the problem is that over the years the council has failed to maintain the exterior and communal areas - including...

                      It may benefit older leases by removing "marriage value" from lease extensions but this would not help you _ and freeholders are also aware of imminent changes and may be more willing to negotiate prior.
                      Speak with a specialist like Homehold.org who will negotiate on your behalf,...

                    • How much can the freeholder charge for registering details of a sublet?
                      by Joubert
                      I am a director of a Freehold Company of a small block of 28 flats in a popular residential area.

                      Over the past few years the majority of flats have been purchased by investors who sublet the flats on ASTs.

                      Although the leases between the Freehold Company and the lessees are...

                      If the lease states that you may charge a registration fee of £10, that is the amount you may charge, you are not entitled to increase the charge unless the lease specifically allows an increase. Even then you would be limited to a reasonable amount and £100 would be considered to be unreasonable....

                      I sued my freeholder for failure to maintain my driveway, judge was quite damning but I was only awarded £100 as hard to proof any loss BUT in your case it sounds you have exceptional worry over various incidents so yes you could sue and as I found out it was useful, I got costs too and its something...

                      by scot22
                      In a block of 24, unfortunately one flat has become dilapidated. The new owner has bought cheaply. She is now demanding the Freeholder pays to refurbish it claiming they have been negligent. Is there a reasonable case ?

                      Thanks all. It was a great price, significantly below market value, plus in further negotiations a reduction to pay for any further work. This was identified by a surveyor. She is not clueless.....
