    Whose responsibility

    My understanding is that leaseholders are responsible for what is demised to them. However, in our lease floorboards demised. However, freeholder undertakes repair obligation covenant.
    Which has precedence.

    You would have to quote the relevant clauses (including any reference to the leaseholder's repair responsibilities), but it is possible for leases to make freeholders responsible for repairs to some parts of a property, even if those parts are demised to a leaseholder.

      Thanks. That's what LEASE said but I wanted a second opinion.

        It's also common for leaseholders to be responsible for wiring and plumbing that is outside their demise, but is only used by it.

        You really have to read the specific lease.

          This is not exactly easy to follow so any responses you get will be meaningless

          No that is not a correct understanding

            In the lease



            For what?
            To repair the demised part



            ?
            Erm. If there are two contradictory statements which would be followed.

            Thanks to everyone who made helpful posts.

              hi,

              My freehold management company, also known as the Devil, {Mod - name removed}, are requesting an £138 underlet registration fee from me. I realise its been discussed umpteen times but thought if I post the clause (attached) they are relying upon I might find someone with a better mind...

              The solicitors are correct, the LVT does not have the power because it ceased to exist in June 2013.

              The FTT would also not have the jurisdiction to consider the charge because it is not a variable administration charge, you have the right to choose a fixed fee of £5 as stated by Lawcruncher...

              Hello

              Im due to complete on Monday which is the scariest part of this. I have a house cat. My lease is POORLY worded with a clause that says:

              " No pets may be kept in a flat and where the property is a house you must not keep any animal including livestock except a pet...

              The property agent told you you can get consent for a house cat.

              Your solicitor told you the lease says cats can be kept with consent.

              The HA told you that they would grant permission pending the information provided. Presumably they want to reserve the right to refuse if you...

              The power seems to have existed since September 2004, which is before the FTT replaced the LVT (Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002, Schedule 11).

              Yes that’s right, he interprets it the same way as the HA do - the HA have clarified their position that it is, in their opinion, a blanket ban on pets in flats. The solicitor would therefore then argue that such a term would be considered unfair and therefore not legally binding....

              I have already researched that case actually - the question in that case is whether the management company was reasonable in its refusal. This is quite different to this situation, whereby a blanket ban (which the HA are implying they have) allows no potential special circumstances to be taken into...

              Well its been two weeks and they still haven't responded to my request for the freeholders solicitors details. we shall see what happens....

              they did send previously a templated response saying that "the LVT does not have power to rule that a registration fee is unreasonable"....

              My comment regarding livestock was intended to be tongue in cheek!
              I think that you'd have to be more specific than "indoors" though - factory farmed livestock might not see anything other than the inside of a building until loaded into a cramped truck to be taken for slaughter.

              I tried to post a bunch of medical links on the health effects of cats in buildings to others in the building. But seemingly if you have more than a few links your post gets killed.

              Anyway, I'm with jpkeates (and most others) on this one. Perhaps OPs solicitor will help out with the 70K...
