    Have I understood this correctly please

    I am selling a leasehold flat which has 2 car parking spaces and am trying to understand the lease regarding subletting.I will attach a copy.I think it means that in the last 7 years the flat and car parking space must be owned by the lessee as a whole and not sold or let.Before then the lessee cannot sell or let just part of the flat or part of the car parking space and also that the lessee cannot separate the flat from the car parking space and sell or let either separately.
    Any advice welcome please as am hoping to appeal to an investor who would want to buy and then rent out the flat.Estate agent asked if there were any prohibitions in the lease regarding renting .Thank you for any help

    I see the lease as you do - no restriction on subletting of the whole of the premises except for the last 7 years of the term.

    Do any of your neighbors rent out their property?

        Does a leaseholder have to be a registered proprietor to join a collective? Or is it sufficient for her/his/it to be a transferee whose interest is not yet registered?

        at risk of answering my own question, the leaseholder has to prove title which is a bit difficult if not registered........

        Hi. I have a freehold after selling a leasehold flat in a block of 4 flats. We don't currently have a managing agent, so these duties currently fall to me (I am holding off appointing a managing agent whilst the leaseholders consider whether they want to RTM).

        The block needs some maintenance...

        It is relatively simple to administer process. However, definitely engage professional to define necessary work and project manage.

        If I can, anybody can.

        They are correct that the purchase of the freehold has no relevance (although it would allow the three of you to alter the leases if you are all in agreement).

        Unless you alter the leases you continue to split service charge costs according to what the terms of your leases say - sharing...

        If the leases are going to be for 999 years there is not a lot of point imposing a restriction in such terms. It is also open to interpretation. You have to decide first if you are going to allow subletting at all. That has to depend on what people want. If any owner already sublets then you cannot...

        In the process of buying freehold for our building. 9 participants (from 11 flats).

        Our solicitor will extend leases to 999 years for an additional fee if we want to. She has asked, as part of that extension process:

        ...And it still going to depend on what it is for (and on what your lease allows to be charged for, and when.

        Service charge demands have to include details such as a service address for the freeholder, and have to be accompanied by an appropriate copy of 'leaseholders rights and responsibilities',...
