    If we weren't here anymore

    If something bad were to happen to myself or my partner, could we pass on our lease to her son in a will ?

      If you don't already have a will that bequeaths the lease to your partner's son, then you need to create a will or amend the existing will with a codicil. I would suggest you use a solicitor to write the will so it reflects your wishes.

      You may also want to consider storing the will at the Probate Registry rather than the solicitor's.

        Do you mean the lease on your house or flat where you are now living ? Are you and partner registered as "joint owners" of the property.?

          I think I have found the answer:-

          Hague - Leasehold Enfranchisement (seventh edition) at 24-01

          It is considered that to be a participating tenant, the lessee must be registered at the HM Land Registry as proprietor of the lease at the relevant date

          The note...

          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?

          So the lease allows for the property to be kept in good condition.
          Thus, the shared hall could be spruced up no problem, but there is an issue with driveway - partially it belongs to the freeholder, partially to the ground floor leaseholder - it is made out of the old paving stones, it looks...

          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...

          What if something goes wrong ? You need a surveyor to safeguard your interests. There are some untrustworthy roofers, and other trades.
          It is better to follow standard procedures. From experience I would not follow informal routes. O.K when everyone reasonable and cooperative but things can...

          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...

          If the work is 'contracted' by the leaseholders rather than the freeholder does that remove the requirement for a S20?

          eg if the 4x leaseholders wish to accept a quote and get the works done (including making payment) does this avoid S20 consultation?

          I think the new lessee is unable to join because of the registration gap

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