    Freeholder charging for permission to sublet

    What is the position re a freeholder charging for permission to sublet? I am presuming it depends what is in the lease.

    I received a letter several years ago stating the ground rent was to be paid to X company instead of Y. I cannot remember, but suspect I asked permission from the Y company upon purchase some years ago so does anyone know the position now?

    And if charges are permitted under the lease, what has a tribunal held to be a reasonable amount?

    I think there was a ruling - £60, unless you have a specific lease.

      Your presumption is correct.

        Does anyone have a case reference as to what is held to be a reasonable amount?

          If there is a figure for subletting stated inside the lease , that should be the amount to pay.

          If there is no figure stated , then offer to pay £40 + VAT which is the figure determined in case below.
