    Thanks for both your comments and also your argument Gordon999. I do agree with you. I am a resident landlord and have lived there for nearly 2 years, but the co-freeholder (stated as tenant in common) does not live there and the buyer's solicitor is claiming this means RFR applies. The legislation is poorly written and subject to interpretation. It may have been sorted through the transfer of freehold from A & B to new A, current B and existing C as one third each, but we are still waiting for signatures from everyone. What a stressful 6 weeks this has been - and a lot of emailing!

    As far as I understand you can only sue a lawyer if you have lost money and / or been hurt. The stress may well have caused me hurt (a miscarriage) and some extra money has been spent, but not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things, but if anyone feels I do have a legal case here against anyone involved, I would welcome this news!

    There's the solicitor firm which sold the flat to me without ever bringing this up; there's the solicitor firm which was first instructed in the sale of this flat who conceded on RFR as soon as it was raised, and then could not back down, so told us to find a new solicitor at no charge bar our £300 deposit; there's the buyer's solicitor who the estate agent recently said have admitted they may be wrong on this to us, although from what I've learnt over the years, estate agents are allowed to lie, and my solicitor has said they have not admitted anything.

    Anyway, most important is to get this over the line.

    Thanks again for your thoughts.

      Do you have insurance for the contents? Maybe there is loss of rent cover included there.

      by Ldawg
      The flat I rent out has suffered from recurrent leaks from upstairs since I purchased it, 4 leaks in 4 years. It's caused me to lose one tenant already. I feel like there is no incentive for the owner upstairs to sort the problem (check the plumbing etc) as the cost is always covered by insurance and...

      Hello, I am new here so please excuse me if this question has already been asked, but a search has drawn a blank.

      This is the important question, what are the reasons for non payment?

      Have demands been correctly served including the correct summaries of rights and obligations?

      Are the landlord obligations under the lease being carried out?

      Have service charge end of year accounts...

      Is there a restrictive covenant in the title of the commercial-property owner (CPO) giving you and the other lessee a right of way over the land?

      Is the CPO a freeholder or leaseholder of the land?

      With regard to the point related to '20 years' you are referring to adverse...

      The RTM can make a money claim online but as this enquiry concerns service charges the lessee will have the right to have the service charges determined unless already agreed. Depending upon the lessee's response to the claim, the County Court may refer the claim to the FTT.

      What are the...

      Thanks for your response.

      All costs are being covered by the management company. So currently I'm not actually losing out so I'm not really sure what I'm claiming for! More just the stress of it all. And the potential loss of earning and making unrentable/saleable as you say. Yes the floor...

      Hoping to get some clarification,

      If a flat (Outside Greater London) with 60 years left is sold for £110,000 and comparable properties with longer leases attain £160,000

      What is the relativity in this case?

      Would it be £110000 less 5.5% (to estimate for no act...

      In this instance what would
