    Changes to the lease

    This is a hypothetical but possibly relevant.

    If the freeholder wants to change a lease do the leaseholders have to agree? Alternatively, if the freehold has been bought by the leaseholders, would a change in the terms of the lease need a simple majority in favour or would it have to be a unanimous decision? There are aspects of our lease that some have broken and at some point I am expecting the freehold to change hands.

    Each and every lessee will need to agree changes to their own lease, regardless.

      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...

      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...
