    Leasehold charge for when i remortgage

    Hi guys, can I ask in your opinion what does the following mean.

    I. Clause 2 (xix) of the previous Lease shall be deleted and replaced with the following:-

    Within one month after every assignment transfer legal charge instrument of charge or underlease (whether absolute or by way of mortgage) of the Demised Premises or any devolution of the interest of the Lessee under this present lease in the Demised Premises to give notice in writing with particulars there of to the Lessor or his agents and produce such assignment transfer legal charge instrument of charge mortgage or underlease or in the case of any such devolution the Probate of Will or the Letters of Administration.

    under which devolution arises and to pay to them their fee calculated at the rate of Nought decimal point one per centum (0.1%) of the consideration set out in the document then being registered save that where the consideration is nominal or there is no reference to consideration the said fee shall be Nought decimal point one per centum (0.1%) of the last full consideration for value relating to the Premises subject in any event to a minimum fee of Fifty Pounds (£50.00).

    No fee shall be payable in respect of a Mortgage Charge or Discharge if a fee is paid for registration of another contemporaneous disposition of the Premises

    It means that if you sell the property for 400K you pay them a fine of £400. How and when was this clause changed. Hard to see why anyone would consent to such a clause in retrospect?

    I personally would not buy such a place -- it shows that it is being managed by crooks


      It was in the lease but the last ***** owner was such a ****** and he basically neglected the place , I seriously can't believe anyone would make decisions he did. But he paid for it in the end.

      1. He let the lease run to about 70 so had to pay a huge fee to renew it to above 80.

      2. Then the property was such a state

      3. Lastly he basically went give me the cheapest extension . So leaseholder jacked up ground rent and put in this dodgy charge .

      But on the better news note there are no service charges and I can choose my own building insurance so if yes not as bad as it could be .

      I contacted them about the fee and what it involved and was net with avoidance and evasion . Like most services or charges in this business once you ask questions people tend to become evasive as they know it's just a ******.

      Makes my blood boil how they are able to get away with it eg leasehold scandal .

      But I think maybe in retrospect my situation not to bad as it could be

        Hi all,

        Long time lurker of this forum and recent new member. Have always found the forum incredibly helpful so thank you! Have now got an issue with our freeholder that I could use some specific advice on (have tried searching for similar posts but to no avail).

        We have recently...

        It makes you wonder why any freeholder should comply with s20 at all. As you say, it can wait to see if any leaseholder challenges the costs. It does not even need to explain why it did not comply with s20, the only consideration appears to be whether or not the leaseholders suffered any financial prejudice,...

        Hello I would welcome input on the following:
        Two roofs feed into a valley, the valley is in need of repair, this is a shared responsibility and therefore a shared cost. so how do we issue a section 20 notice when really we need the consent and agreement from two different buildings/landlords...

        Not sure if this is the right place for this query but anyway, I'm a first time buyer and have been searching for a property for like two years now (not continuously but on and off and obv covid halted my search for a while). I found a really nice 2 bedroom flat for under £320,000 in a block of around...

        Assuming that the two freeholders have agreed that they will work together and share the costs, they jointly agree what needs to be communicated to the leaseholders and then each freeholder writes to the leaseholders in their building.

        This is possibly by far the most important consideration, in my opinion.
        If the OP's lease doesn't allow 'improvements' to be charged to service charges, the freeholder cannot require them to contribute anything towards the costs, and would therefore be something that they would have had no choice...

        I was hoping you would be able to help. We own a ground floor flat LLH(970 yrs remaining). The freeholder owns the house and lets the flat upstairs on an AST.

        The freeholder currently undertaking works including replumbing. We have been on a shared water supply and we connect through their...

        Although when my freeholder applied for dispensation a while back (arguing that the proposed work had to be carried out as a matter of urgency) they were granted dispensation with the First Tier Tribunal commenting that the 2013 Supreme Court Case of Daejan versus Benson meant...
