    Thank you for clarification. I was under impression that if the loft doesn't belong to the leaseholder, there is a consideration to be paid to the freeholder.
    That is the case. That is different because the leaseholder does not own it. The price payable is what the parties agree and has nothing to with a percentage of uplift in value.

      Has a party wall agreement been discussed ?

        Neelix Not yet because the works have not been agreed by the freeholder. What should I be thinking about or what should I expect?

          You need to ensure that a party wall agreement is in place before any work commences

          The "other party" has to pay all the costs and don't be fobbed off by them saying its not required - it there to protect both of you

            Neelix cheers for that. My ground floor flat doesn't 'border' with any of the areas that the top floor flat will be developing (the roof and outside terrace). Do i still need party wall?

              A RICS surveyor will be able to tell u how many party walls are needed and with whom.

              • New Government proposals re leasehold reform
                by perigee
                I see that there are proposals to simplify the extension/enfranchisement procedures and reduce the costs for lessees, including abolishing marriage values. I appreciate that these are early days but is there any guidance from professionals acting for landlords - as distinct from lessees - on these...

                As I said earlier if a property is burdened with a ground rent of £300 - £500 per annum and it rises by the RPI or doubles every 20//25 or 33 years how is that the stuff of nightmares ?

                We are regarded in a world stage to have a very advanced legal system and as seen as a safe place to...

                A lease is the grant of an estate in land. The estate granted is a "term of years", a label which describes what is in the tin. Virtually all leases have conditions attached or implied, but the conditions are not essential. A lease may for convenience be regarded as the combined grant of a...

                I'm having a problem with someone spitting in the communal areas of our block of flats. The person is the boyfriend of a tenant. She has already been spoken to about the incidents but I think it likely that he denied it was him or claimed it was a accident (as he had a nasty cold when the spitting...

                by andyg1
                Hi All

                I wonder if anyone can set my mind to rest, i am the leaseholder of the flat in question . In 2008 i employed a firm of solicitors to extend my Lease . It was a 99 year lease granted in 1978 and it was eventually extended for an additional 90 years . During negotiations...

                In 55 years time, you may be faced with the possibility that the freehold is able to buy your flat at its market value.

                You undertook that exercise in 2008 so if you were just 21 then this "problem" would concern you when you are 90 - if freeholder can satisfy the court about...

                It is the financial burden that the ground rent imposes on the property that needs to be valued correctly.

                The consumer credit act sought to value one financial product with another, by having the APR quoted to assist the purchaser make an informed choice. My proposal would be that the...

                I am the director of a freehold company which has a number of flats in a purpose built mansion block.

                One of the lower ground flats has a serious damp issue which has been addressed several times over the years at considerable cost by the building. The damp is coming through the floor...

                Seriously ??? If it's really the neighbours water then just dig a couple of meter deep trench along the boundary and put a French drain it.
