    Freeholder permission and checks

    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 being granted?

    Lease: Does it allow it? Is the land demised rather than just licensed? If not demised, you can charge a premium.

    Lease: Repairing responsibilities?

    Lease: Update lease plans.

    Planning Permission: As this is not a single family house, full planning consent will be needed.

    Building control: this is likely to involve replacing a wall with a lintel. Also, the glazing needs to be either done by someone in a competent persons scheme. Electrics (possibly within permitted changes, but you should insist on at least a competent persons scheme certification).

    Surveyor: If in doubt bring in a surveyor to check/supervise at their expense.

    Working hours/noise abatement.

      Thank you for your response. In terms of if the lease allows it with freeholder permission - has anyone got any links to helpful websites or guidelines as to what to request for approval - i.e. planning permission, surveyors, etc and documents required? We are first time freeholders and it would be useful to have some kind of idea of what we should be requesting in terms of documentation

        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.
