    They wont pay to change the lease, as it COSTS MONEY for solicitors !
    It is noted the lease is defective, they all agree on that point.

      So write a letter to the flat owner refusing consent for a sublet to Council giving reason as having council tenants living in the block may cause loss of capital value for every flat.

        1) he has not asked to sub-let, and wont, because he sublet last year,
        been empty for a while.

        2 ) But they are not council tenants, legaly, they are "homeless" people,
        but "who" they are is only one on the forseeable problems, as the next
        will be constant changes of sub-tenants, every 3 weeks, or 3 months,
        or every 3 days ?, and they can get furniture from the council though !

        and yes, may devalue the flats, but if no one is selling, then there
        is no financial loss, but i would not wish to defend "capital value" in
        a court room, thank you ! only the wishes of the majority to to say
        no to sub letting to the council.

          And have you yet asked who the undertenant( not the occupant) would be, to see if it is an incorporated body, and barred under the lease?
          Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.

            we can ask, and we don't expect a reply, and have not received a
            reply, as it's too soon yet, to get one.

            On another point.

            As stated on here, the lessee pays the legal costs to consider an
            application to sub let, but what if the lessee does not ask for
            permission, are we then stuffed and can't get back our legal fees
            beause he did not officialy ask, or request, or apply ?

            Or is it that investigations were carried out on the verbal comments
            of the lessee ? and we incurred legal costs to quantify our lease.
            LHA ?

              If the intention to let is not baseless, then you could ask and refer to that initial discussion and explain quoting the lease that it is the freeholders view that the lease intends to let solely to individuals.

              It is therefore unlikely that permission will be granted, however without prejudice to the terms of the lease if there is an intention to let, that any proposal is submitted at the earliest date and not within 3 weeks of the proposed date of under letting. Full details of the under tenant and the proposed letting and occupation should be included.

                  Thanks Gordon999

                  You can see from above reply to Macromia that's your comment wouldn't be relevant to me. there is no managing agent. It's just me (FH) and LH in upstairs flat.

                  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.

                  Thanks Macromia, I'm hoping not to have to request quotes to include extra 'contingency' as I know some building materials literally jumped by up to 80% pretty much overnight and so I / we could end up paying a hell of a lot more than we have to go with a 'protective' quote.

                  You could show the last service charge demanded by previous managing agent . There should be a final summary of the service charge account.to show the unspent funds.

                  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. 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...

                  Good questions.
                  The fact that the cost of work means that Section 20 consultation is required doesn't necessarily mean that it is major work that will require a project manager and, although most leases will contain clauses that allow the cost of project management to be recovered from leaseholders,...
