    Smart meters

    Can a freeholder insist all meters are changed to SMART meters?

    All leaseholders have individual meter cupboards and their own accounts. Meters are located in communal areas and are the responsibility of the landlord in the leases. By this I mean, a leaseholder could not change, for example, from a pre-pay meter to a credit meter without the freeholder's permission but equally, the utilities companies would likely only take instructions to change from pre-pay to credit from account holders.

    Any insights appreciated.

      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.

      In fact all you need is a copy signed by the landlord.

      When lawyers deal with licences they are usually executed as "part and counterpart" - that is the landlord signs one part and the tenant another. When everyone is ready the parts are exchanged. The landlord then has a part...

    • Freeholder permission and checks
      c118
      We have recently purchased a maisonette leasehold and the entire freehold of the building (one other flat on the ground floor). In regards to freehold permission for a conservatory extension, are there any resources online that advise what checks should be completed/information required prior to permission...

      Given that this is not your area of expertise, why not talk to a surveyor to manage the discussions/project for you at the leaseholder's cost....

      No need to put "the deed is signed in duplicate".
      You could have 200 originals, but you still only have authorisation to carry out alterations once, and for the prescribed alteration.

      Thank you all for your replies. Therefore, I will ask the landlord to arrange for us to execute the deed again and we all sign both copies. Should the licence specifically state "the deed is signed in duplicate" or similar wording or is the current deed OK in this respect?

      Thank...

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

      Thank you.

      There should have been 2 originals, and you all sign the two.
      One for the landlord and one for the tenant..
      Thats the way it should have been done.
