    Any complications caused from leaseholder refurbishing communal parts

    We are one of 2 leaseholders, converting an office building into 3 flats. The freeholder and other leaseholder, have agreed for us to refurbish the communal parts. We are aware of all the required building & fire regulations. Until now, we've simply split the cost between us, the leaseholders. The freeholder has since decided to sale another potential flat within the building, and that this flat should be apportioned part of communal cost; which the freeholder will pay upon being invoiced. My husband is providing the labour, for which he will provide an invoice. I will then personally invoice the freeholder, for a portion of the costs. Is it as simple as this, or am I overlooking anything from a legal and/or tax prospective? Thank you in advance for your advice.

    In practice what will happen is that the solicitors dealing with the estate will write to you for confirmation that no money is due under the lease, and they will pay you because a buyer will want to take the flat clear of arrears.

    Hi,
    I have done a bit of research, but I am still not sure where it is best to start so hoping for a few pointers with outstanding service charges.

    I'm a freeholder of a converted house. I recently sent a letter of claim to the leaseholder for non-payment of service charges, advising...

    Thanks to each of you for your help. I had thought that perhaps there would be a process for the executor to follow with the small claims court in the event of someone passing away rather than obviously pursuing with a deceased person. Jon66, thanks for the article, really helpful, and for all your...

    Has anyone used this Money Claim Online to make a claim of a freeholder to carry out some maintenance? The form looks impressive and could save on legal fees if it works. Any input appreciated. Thanks

    Having a Court Judgement proving the FH has breached the lease is great but can that potentially put buyers off? It might well put me off buying a property knowing the FH is negligent. Seems everything a leaseholder does to try and remedy a problem then has a 'black mark' against them when trying to...

    Aside from getting consent from the freeholder to build in the loft, the neighbors downstairs said they would not allow any scaffolding to be put on their land. They own the front, side and back gardens, which is in their lease, it is not shared so I guess it would be classed as trespassing.
