    Lease extension with limited title guarantee only


    Could you advise please?

    In the process of lease extension of one flat I bought recently. It has the full title guarantee. However, my solicitor informs me that Section 57(8)(b) of the 1993 Act only obliges the Landlord to provide limited guarantee as opposed to full guarantee with respect to the conveyance. So the new lease only has limited guarantee and the solicitor states that that is not negotiable due to Section 57(8)(b) of the 1993 Act and the guarantees given are virtually identical in any event.

    I just wonder if anyone else had experienced this when you did your lease extension. Should I insist to get the full title guarantee from the landlord as it originally has?

    Thanks in advance.

    • 1) Your possition - and mine, is NOT permitting letting will enhance the properties.
    • 2) Bad tenants DO adversely affect property values - normally.
    • 3) Your lease is not defective, so no need to change. And Judges HAVE gone along with the freeholder keeping the "no letting"

    Yes, Homeground is now representing the Free Holder and gave me the authorisation to carry this.
    they normally do all these themselves, but only for a Management Company, not for our RTM one…

    Earlier posters have covered everything I wanted to write.

    Owner occupiers generally treat a property better than tenants (I have been both and it applied to me too).

    Not adverse possession I don't think. Even if the chairs remained there fenced off for a decade, I don't think you can claim AP relating to land you have the right to access anyway.

    I can't see a problem with them sitting there if the lease allows, but should not be leaving the stuff there...
