    License to alter ownership query

    Do you have to own a leasehold to a demised property to be granted a license to alter by the freeholder for alterations to that demised property?

    I see no reason why not, though as freeholder I wouldn't give a personal licence to alter to a third party, I would happily consent to changes for a potential purchasor for example.

      I would say the licence can only be granted to whomsoever the lease is vested in; as the lessor cannot grant licence to someone who does not have a propretorial interest. The reason is that only someone who is seized of the leasehold interest as proprietor or interested as Executor, Trustee, Administrator can exercise the rights the freeholder purports to grant by way of licence.

      • Share of feehold/shared service charges?

        Hi there,

        I'm new to the forum and looking for advice on a sticky freehold situation.

        I own a two-bed flat in a converted building with two one-beds. The lease states that a fair proportion is payable towards the service charge. However, there has been a running agreement of...

        I suggest that you ask the other 2 leaseholders to explain why they consider that the current allocation is fair. The freeholder has the right to review the allocation from time to time. Unfortunately, a "fair proportion" means that several alternatives would be considered reasonable to a...

        RTM handing over issues

        Our RTM companies comprise 4 blocks of 6 identical two bedroom flats and each block is registered at Companies House as a separate company.
        Following the acquisition date, it was discovered the former directors ignored legal advice and changed property management companies...

        You appear to have a claim against the freeholder, not the individual companies, who are acting as agent for the freeholder. A Tribunal does not have the jurisdiction to deal with monies which should be handed over, it is a matter for the courts,

        You do not appear to hold sufficient information to make a claim against the freeholder at this stage. I suggest that you apply to the FTT to challenge the charges. You would then be able to ask the Tribunal to direct the freeholder to disclose further information....

        by jazzythumper
        Since obtaining the RTM and changing the managing agent, we have never been given full accounts / receipts for the previous year(s). We believe that as the old freeholder and leaser holder of one of the flats were represented by the same solicitor that prior to the sale of the freehold, we were subsidising...

        Hi LZ Community

        Just wondering if anyone's had/having any issues with S20 and allowing leaseholder 30 days to review estimates, raise concerns etc.

        Building material prices have fluctuated massively since covid and brexit.
        with a combination of Brexit, impact from russia/ukraine...

        With just two properties involved, and you being a resident, your best option would probably be to agree a time to talk through the proposed work and the need to skip the full 30 days that are supposed to be allowed for each stage of consultation.
        If the other leaseholder has any major concerns,...

        30 years ago I bought a flat from a friend. The freehold at the time was registered to my friend and the lady who owned the other flat. I understood at the time that I would replace the friend on the freehold but this never happened. This was not a problem until now as when work on the structure of...

        Your friend may not have to have his ID confirmed as the consideration will be far less than £5,000 and if he did form ID5 makes life a lot easier as it can be done via a video link...
