    Evidence of leasehold interest?

    I have just completed on the purchase of a long Leasehold flat.

    Separately I am apply for a Court order restoration of the Limited Company that own the freehold which was dissolved on 15 th June 2015 so the application needs to be sent by server to the Court before 15th June 2021. This part is straight forward.

    Normally I would send a copy of the Land Registry entry with my name on it but Land Registry are taking 6 months to register. This begs the question how does one prove one "has an interest in land" (to qualify as a valid applicant to restore ) without waiting for Land Registry to update the register - is a TR1 signed and dated sufficient along with a copy of the contract as proof of ownership?

    Many thanks

    In theory, the only proof of title to registered land is the register at HM Land Registry. At best, a TR1 is only evidence of entitlement to be registered and there is no guarantee that the application to register is in order. Unfortunately, what you cannot get away from is the fact that the register does not show you as owner. All you can do is send the TR1, though an accompanying letter from your conveyancer confirming that an application to register has been made should not go amiss. You can of course ask the court what you should do.

    • Flat entrance door - fire door compliance
      by MrSoffit
      Hi. Inspecting flat entrance doors has been a requirement since the 2005 Fire safety Order. The role of managing agents to inspect front doors is covered in appendices to the 2011 guidelines.

      Should a managing agent have in-house expertise to carry out door inspections (required by an...

      Best practice is for the agent to appoint an external contractor to conduct an FRA and formal risk assessments. Checking for obvious damage to apartment doors would be completed during a standard site inspection by the agent. Any significant damage should then be followed up by a contractor assessment...

    • External wall surveys - S20
      by Samish
      Hi there, sorry if this has been covered before but I was hoping to get peoples view on costs for external wall surveys and whether they are qualifying works under S20? Colleagues of mine think that we need to go through S20 consultation, however I'm of the opinion that, while expensive and invasive,...

      We are going to make an application to dispense under S20ZA out of caution, however I don't personally feel that it should be classed as 'works'. It is an inspection by a qualified individual. If an asbestos survey exceeded the S20 threshold, or a fire risk assessment, you might challenge the cost on...

      by riva
      I live in a share of freehold (block of 5 flats) and we are currently paying around 6k per flat for management/bills per annum. No concierge but there's a lift. It's an external management company that we outsource to. Thing is, I feel that they were coming up with rather expensive quotes and so I've...

      We need some more information please. Are the leases directly between the freeholder and the leaseholders or is there an RMC involved?
      A block of 5 flats can probably be managed by the leaseholders themselves, especially if you are all contributing and you all get along well. The problem is when...

      I have received a letter from ICO informing me that we need to pay a fee. Our managing agent says we must decide if we want to pay and offers no advice. Do other RMCs pay this?

      There is a registration self assessment on the ICO web site. I suggest that you complete it and keep a copy if it states that you do not need to pay a registration fee....
