    Over occupation?

    Landlord above me has let a one bed to a couple. They moved in with a kid a a third relative sleeps in living room. According to the law based on rooms 2 rooms max 3 people, the kid over 1 under 9 counts as .5 so technically over crowding. However room measurements say something different. Rooms are 15'2 ft by 14'1 and the other 15'7 by 11'1 ft. Can any one assist. I have serious noise and other issues

    I think you are pretty much stuffed if they are all relatives. Is landlord aware of the situation?

        The lower of the two figures counts, so the flat does sound to be criminally overcrowded, in which case, both landlord and tenant are committing offences. However, can you confirm that the child was at least one year old when the family moved in, as the council can, and almost certainly will, give dispensations if the overcrowding happened as a result of the child becoming one year old.

        • Licence to Alter

          Should the leaseholder be given the original signed copy of a Licence to Alter (LTA)? Our landlord created a deed (LTA) to provide us with permission for work we are planning but we were given a photo copy of the completed document but think we should retain the original.

          Thank you.

          A licence is a consent to do something and you give the original to the person who needs the consent.

          Is there any rule regarding the time a decision must be received from the FTT?

          Thank you.

          We just went through the process for a straightforward application to vary leases under Section 35 (paper determination). Ours took four months from application to receipt of decision.

          I know I've posted many times on this subject, apologies.
          The issue is tanking first floor flat where none has existed. External wall has been carefully maintained. I have searched but not able to find any cases.
          Also could freeholder be liable for any internal work such as plaster....

          Being concerned for people's well being I will do my utmost not to post anything else on the subject. Nearly everyone is completely fed up with the unfounded claim. I appreciate every contribution that has been given.
