    Freehold title in lease

    Hi All,

    In my long leasehold lease the landlords title number does not match the title number in the freehold offical copy.

    The freehold title is registered on land registry and my lease title number is shown on this freehold title BUT on the lease it has a freehold title number that does not match the one registered (if you search the one in my lease it does not come up on the register).

    I can only infer this as a mistake in the lease - the freehold title has been inserted int he lease incorrectly.

    I am now worried this may have an impact on my lease and make it void?

    There is nothing to worry about as your lease is registered. The likely explanation is that when the lease was granted the freehold title out of which the lease was granted contained more land than it does today.

    Example:

    Freeholder owns 23 and 25 Oaktree Lane registered under Title No. YB31245. He grants a lease of the first floor flat of 23 and the lease refers to Title No. YB31245. He later sells the freehold of 25 but retains 25. 23 will need a new title number, say YB39758. The title to the lease of the first floor flat of 23 is not affected. On the sale one would expect 25 to retain the title number YB31245, but at some stage the owner may have bought 27 and asked the Registry to amalgamate the two properties under a single title when a new number would have been allocated.

    There may be some other explanation.

      Thanks for reply!

      When I search for the landlords title number included in my lease on land registry it does come up. Once the freehold title has been amended are dormant titles removed from the land registry search?
      Would my lease need to be amended or is it sufficient that my lease is registered on title and also registered on the landlords freehold title, even though the landlords title number it is registered on does not match my lease.

        Sorry I meant to say:

        When I search for the landlords title number included in my lease on land registry it does NOT come up. Once the freehold title has been amended are dormant titles removed from the land registry database or can you view old archives? This would be the easiest way for me to confirm it was a title split?

        Would my lease need to be amended or is it sufficient that my lease is registered on title and also registered on the landlords freehold title, even though the landlords title number it is registered on does not match my lease.

        • Removing Stud Wall in Leasehold Flat
          by Sharon
          Hello, I would like to remove a non-load-bearing stud wall in my flat. It will change the layout inasmuch as I will be stealing some of the space from my entrance hall and creating a larger living room as a result. So no real increase in value of the property as a result, just a matter of taste....

          So do all the fact finding first so that you are well informed and know what you are up against, also try to get the Conservation officer on board on your side with your idea if you want to go ahead as he or she will be the person to say yes or no. The freeholder can not unreasonably refuse you the...

          Thank you very much for responding!

          Well, I had 'assumed' that it couldn't possibly be a load-bearing wall, as it is a hollow stud wall, with a panel of glass windows at the top (which was clearly created to bring as much light as possible into the entrance hall), and I know this wall didn't...

          I had assumed it was formal. Anyway, my point is that you are disgruntled because someone refuses to pay you money they do not owe you. I would hazard a guess that you do not go round paying money to people who think they are entitled to it but are not....

          by Paulsen
          I am remortgaging my flat and the solicitor has sent a letter to the freeholder asking for a notice fee. I have done it directly to the freeholder and not the MA as we both are in dispute with the old MA and are doing a joint complaint. She probably wouldn’t know how much to ask for and I asked my...

          As you say, requiring a notice of a change of tenant is pretty standard and has been for years. Obviously a landlord needs to know if the tenant has changed. However, the requirement to serve notice on the landlord's solicitor and pay a fee (until fairly recently the standard requirement) rather than...

          Hi, Firstly how do you know its not a load bearing wall? Has a surveyor or structural engineer confirmed this in writing to you ? A listed property change may need consent from the council Conservation officer? You could put a tentative call in to the officer and email him some ideas then if he gives...

          Thank you lawcruncher and RAM for your help, I just called LEASE and the solicitor on the phone there said it would cost a lot of money to go to court as basically I am suing the company and its directors and she said the FTT would not possibly deal with it or be in their remit to address, she suggested...
