    Share of freehold so many issues

    4 share holders
    1. What are the voting rules? I've asked to convert my loft, all have agreed apart from 1, does it have to be unanimous? I don't understand the lease its so confusing and written in old English but it says at any general meeting a vote shall be decided by a show of hands, but she said it has to be unanimous. 2 flats have access to the loft and the communal stairwell loft space holds the ground floor water tanks which the top flats do not have access to, top flats only have roughly 60% flat ceiling space and the rest is sloped
    2. the person who hasn't accepted the loft conversion has converted her windows into two doors without written consent or votes which gives her tenants direct access to their garden which is also being used as a new entry point and not to mention all the extra noise that will be produced from parties or whatever, she has also refurbed her flat into a two bedroom flat without written consent, nobody informed me this would be the case before i moved in and now this new entry point is causing more noise and vibration directly to my bedroom, which was not declared to my solicitors.
    3. 6 months after she said no i asked her if she had changed her mind and she said no so i am currently now in dealings with her about the fact that she did not get consent and also the fact that she has likely invalided the buildings insurance, where do i stand? is there anyone i can contact who specialise in lease contracts?

    In these 6 months, why didn't you either contacted lease advice or a solicitor?

    I would start looking at the solicitors, ask on FB or nextdoor for local people

      You should join the FPRA ( Federation of Private Residents Association ) and get leasehold advice from their solicitor .

            I think this person doesn't really care about vibes or law. I would get the leases checked and have a letter sent by solicitor.

            The question is what other freeholders think?

              Anna1985,

              exactly, you're right thank you, i contacted my solictiors on friday so will follow up with a phone call on monday, one of them doesnt agree with what she has done and is furious but i assume cant be bothered to do anything about it and the other seems to be very much on her side, hes implicated himself by signing consent after the meeting and also tried to indirectly put me off taking it further but of course i figured what he was doing, theyve known each other for over 5 years so maybe trying to keep some sort of loyalty

                Hi there. I hope someone can help me because I have been frantic with worry for 3 days now. This is a bit long!

                I bought a leasehold flat in July 2014. Since I've been here, I have done everything to it to bring it up to a modern acceptable standard. Note that the floorpan of the property...

                First of all, you should not be stating or implying to anyone, least of all your landlord, that you have breached the lease. An admission of a breach saves the landlord the trouble of having to determine that a breach has occurred and has no benefit whatsoever to you.

                From your description...

                Ok, the situation is this...

                I am a director of the freehold management company for a small block of flats (other directors being leaseholders like myself).

                Earlier this year we had some banking issues and changed from one of the big high street banks to an on-line bank....

                thank you - the clarification on the need to accept cask is appreciated.

                I'm aware that Tide has issues, but so to did out high street bank (complaint made to financial ombudsman pending)

                Here's some more

                Comply with and observes such regulations as the Council may from time to time make for the benefit of the owners and occupiers of the said flats and in particular but without prejudice to the foregoing to comply with the regulations made at the date hereof and set out...

                For a start:
                1. Any clause that says that you have to keep floors carpeted, or can't have wooden floors.
                2. Any clause that states that you need inform the freeholder, and/or get freeholder's permission, for non structural alterations.
                3. Any clause that requires you not to do anything...

                I thought that ground floors only were allowed wooden floors.

                And you're right, if I was in my buyer's shoes, I would hate the guy who sold them a flat with clearly weakened soundproofing qualities. I mean, it wasn't great anyway, but it was liveable.

                What clauses should I...

                Rather than withdrawing from the sale, you could just inform the buyers solicitor that you initially answered these questions thinking that they referred only to structural changes, but would like to inform them of the work that you have done.
                It will then be up to the buyer whether they continue...

                I also have no Building Regulations certificates, even though I may have decreased the acoustic and thermal properties of the building.

                Nothing that you have said that you have done to your flat seems to breach the lease clauses that you have quoted - but that doesn't mean that you have breached clauses that you haven't quoted as you clearly haven't quoted all potentially relevant clauses in full.

                It sounds more like the...
