    Neighbour (leaseholder) uses house for selling icecream/cars

    Does anyone know the law on running a business from a leasehold property please.

    The owner of the lease has a son who has moved in with his Mother. These properties are specifically for the over 55s...son in his 30s.

    He has left his place of work with back problems and started a Computer business from the property.

    There are a few other issues here but not for this thread.

    The Mother moved in about 2 years ago, bringing 3 cats when animals aren't allowed!!

    I am led to understand son is claiming benefits as is Mother plus she is also claiming the single occupancy council tax rebate.

    Until recently this was a desirable area. Sadly like so many places its going downhill fast with people like this in our midst.

    What is your involvement in this matter? Are you a lessee in the same block?

    Sounds like the lease is being beached on multiple fronts. The lessee must comply with the lease at all times. If the lessee does not comply with the lease, the freeholder may take action leading to forfeiture.

    Most residential leases prohibit running a business from the property. Read the lease. Does it prohibit running a business?

      Yes I am a neighbour and lessee also.

      I don't actually have a copy of the lease, so best arrange to get one,,not actually sure where to get it tho.

      I did ask one of the Directors who is also a neighbour but she doesn't have one and didn't seem to know where to get one.

      I'll try the Solicitor on Monday.

      Thank-you for your reply.

          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...

          I suggest that you apply to or take action against the freeholder directly, the agent is only acting on behalf of the freeholder. If you think that the freeholder is likely to supply information, you can ask him to volunteer it otherwise you will apply to the Tribunal. If he is unlikely to volunteer...

          As in a simple application to the old managing agent Or freeholder? Which one?

          To provide all accounts and payments based on the fact that we disagree with the charges? How far back can we go? And does having paid the service charges mean we have agreed to these?

          Thanks for...

          It's never advisable , it can cause serious issues if you have a claim affecting communal areas. For buildings insurance the whole property should be covered and the cost split between the two flats.
          The only problem with an absent freeholder is that when selling the flat a pernickity solicitor...

          There is no cast iron rule that the freehold "share" has to be transferred with any sale. You may need to purchase it from the friend (or his estate)....

          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...
