    Where are actual costs of lease extension/freehold purchase recorded?

    Hi everyone,

    I was just wondering where the actual cost of lease extension or freehold purchase were actually recorded? is here a body that stores them all?

    Thanks, richard

    The LVT may have records of its decisions but those are only the minority that had actually to be decided - in many cases there were negotiations which would be private or in even more cases the statutory procedure would not have been used at all - so it would be difficult to look at all the figures in a given area establish actual trends etc.

    As a conveyancing solicitor I believe the information given in the post to be useful (provided it relates to property in England & Wales) but I accept no liability except to fee-paying clients.


      You can search for past LVT case judgements on the records held by www.lease-advice.org

        We are the freeholders to a block of flats. We own the freehold in a limited company.

        Apparently one of the flats issued a Section 42 back in April with a date of July for any counter offers.

        Is the address of your managing agent the same as the address at the Land Registry for you as freeholder?

        If you believe the figure offered is too low, you could have therefore regarded the notice as invalid and that is why you have not responded. They would then have to apply to the court...

        As per lease - everyone supposed to maintain their frontages. The road is made private long time ago and there's no owners currently it is bona-vacatia now.

        I am one of 6 leaseholders in a block of 6 flats. We have had historic issues with the roof, our Community Interest Company changed from one managing agent (with a public history of failings) to another, both have carried out poor repairs in the past.

        Usually the scaffolding is put up by the scaffolding rental company. The roof repair work will be done by roofing company who worker may not be aware of the scaffolding on site.

        Hi All,

        I have a leaseholder that constantly refuses to pay service charges and ground rent. I’ve had endless court cases but they are slow and I’ve then struggled to get court fees back which have been added to everyone’s service charges including mine!

        I’ve decided...

        I am representing a group of investors in a property where the developer/freeholder has gone into administration. Two questions - does the administrator now technically own the freehold? and can they demand payment for repairs to the building that the freeholder should have carried out in order to protect...

        You can check online at Land Registry website for the name of current freeholder of your building. You may have to pay £3 by credit card to download. Also check the listing of company at Companies House website.
