    Is this lease contradictory?

    First clause is standard ' Not at any time to assign transfer, SUBLET charge of only part of the demised premises as distinguished from entirely thereof'.....

    followed by

    'Not to create any SUB TENANCY or other occupancy of the demised premises provided lesser may create subcharge"

    Former implies let out whole unit on AST ok the latter clause not.

    Is there a way to regularise this ambiguity /contradiction?


    No, it's not contradictory.

    The first clause doesn't say that subletting the whole property is allowed, it says that transferring/assigning/subletting part of the property isn't allowed.

    The second then says that sub-tenacies of the whole property ​​aren't allowed.

    • Structural change made to a leasehold property
      by goodgirlLondon
      Hey, I wondered if I can get some advice and I have looked at related topics but no specific answer. I am a joint freeholder on the first floor of an Edwardian house with just one other joint freeholder on the ground floor. There was an entrance to a redundant staircase on the kitchen floor in my flat...

      I cannot see how anyone can say how expensive it is going to be and any enforcement at this stage would be against the current joint freeholders. For your own peace of mind, if you are having structural problems, you should obtain expert advice and that should indicate what action if any needs to be...

      by eagle2
      I agree with Gordon999, if 50% of the leaseholders, including yourself, wish to form a RTM Company, it could take over all the management duties of the freeholder including the right to collect the fees. In that case, the RTM Company would decide whether to collect the £35 or increase that sum to a...

      I know similar issues have been posted before but thought it best to start a new thread with all specifics as every case/lease is different. Forgive the long post; I thought it best to include as much relevant info as possible.

      I recently remortgaged my leasehold flat with...

      by eagle2
      The agenda for an AGM should strictly relate to Company business but it rarely is limited in that way, it usually includes any subject which the members wish to raise.

      Your point regarding the apportionment of costs should be answered within your lease. If the lease allows discretion on...

      Leaseholders issued with a section 20 notice a few months ago for anticipated works following FRA done a year ago.

      A `fee` of £100 + VAT has been added to each leaseholders share of the total by the Managing agents .

      There is only one Section 20, but when asked, the Managing...

      Is there any connection between the current managing agent and the freeholder of which you are aware? Have you carried out a search at Companies House? You may ask the freeholder why it chose this particular agent and whether or not it obtained alternative quotes before it appointed the agent. The chances...

      by Abi357
      I am interested in buying a house which is for sale as a leasehold title. I have learned that not only is there a freehold but also a superior (head lease). The freehold is owned by the local council and would be relatively easy to purchase however the head lease is owned by an ltd and the current owner...

      I am guessing that the Managing Agents, feel that somehow they have the right to add this fee for themselves, as if £300/flat pa, is insufficient for the work they are doing.
      So I will ask them, again, on what basis they are adding this `fee` , and watch for thier reply Unless you feel there...
