    Additionally there are security issues. I n my opinion, it is unwise to give too many people an excuse to be around the building. The unknown person might not have just parked a car, who knows ? Might friend have passengers. People buy a lease. Rights should not be shared with other people who are not leaseholders.
    Another problem which could arise is that the person using the car parking space could say to another friend that she can park there a day or two. It is alright if it is say for a few hours shopping, but you are talking about every day from say 8am to 6 or 7 or even later if they shop or go out and about. Parking is at a premium where my flat is, in London.


      The lease is also likely to say that the garage can only be used to garage a domestic car, and the planning consent for the development may will say the same.

        There was an argument about garage being sublet or not, but ultimately the breach was usage for trade.

          It's not 'giving a friend a few quid to let you use a parking space'.

          It's letting all & sundry park there. I think your fellow leaseholders would rightly object to that.
          Yes I have looked at that again and I agree and even if she isnt using that particular site, she could still let all and sundry use it, which I think the other leaseholders would get annoyed about. It is only a small house let into six flats so not a great big block and the garden and the parking area are private.

          I do not mind if he friends park there for a few hours because parking outside is difficult but I do not want to give the rights to one person who thinks they have a priority because I am sure she will be charging for it.

          However as I have said I have laid down a few rules and regulations which she got a bit stroppy about thinking that as the car park was hers she could do what she likes.

          No the lease is quite clear that no subletting to be allowed and that included the car park.

            You would, I hope, be licensing the space, not sub-letting it.

            Are you sure that the easements for the grounds don't cover people permitted by you. It will cause you problems with trades people if they don't. I think we need to see the actual wording.
            Yes I see what you mean it does cover tradespeople and workman, but obviously not friends using the property almost permanently and walking every day to and from their work to the flat and also perhaps lots of other times. It is ideal for shopping and anything else when there is car park a few minutes away from all the main shops etc.

            • Lease extension not on Land Registry
              I went to view a property which I am really interested in. I have a few issues I'd really appreciate some advice on:

              1. The estate agent told me the lease is 150 years. I downloaded the title deed from the Land Registry. This states that the term of the lease is 99 years from...

              Thanks so much guys!! I spoke to the estate agent and you were right. They have extended the lease but their solicitor hasn't yet submitted the registration with the land registry. I haven't seen a copy of the lease yet but apparently there is right to park, so looking much more promising than I initially...

              Hi PAP069

              From your post, you are in the throes of negotiating a lease extension on an informal basis.

              The first step is to arrange for a surveyor (RICS qualified) to undertake a valuation. The leaseholder pays the landlord's costs for the survey (you can ask for this in advance...

              I have 're read the original post and it still seems to me that everything is perfectly reasonable. However, if selling avoid disputes with neighbours.
              Block any email address you don't want to receive. Chase up your estate agent and escape asap.

              My solicitor has strongly advised me against purchasing a flat as it has just come to light that the recently renewed lease has had its ground rent increased 100% and it is also on a doubling basis. My solicitor has advised us that mortgage companies are becoming more reluctant to offer mortgages on...

              Perhaps you would be better off finding a more suitable property as clearly this one is no longer suitable. By the sounds of it, all parties would see this as a good solution.

              Just because your circumstances change, trying to bend the lease to suit this is probably not the best way of...
