    Applying for Building Regs

    Hi to all again,

    Further to my previous posts on the advice of LHA and R.a.M my solicitor sent a letter to the leaseholder of downstairs flat saying cellar wasn't even in the lease and they were not to do anything in or to it etc. On a whim I checked the local council website today and find the sneaky so and so has applied (for the second time, the first was refused) for building regs for the alterations he wanted to do! I plan on contacting the council dept on Monday to inform them he has no consent, (and no cellar). I thought that a letter from my sol would stop him, but it seems he is determined to ignore me! Once I inform the council surely they would not grant building regs, and that should stop his plans, no? If he carries on anyway, apart from taking out an injunction, would my best bet be to report him to Planning Control and let them take over?

    Any advice gratefully received,

    Many thanks,

    Wobble

    Sorry chaps, didn't mean to make that sound like LHA and R.a.M. advised my solicitor, I meant I took all the advice I could get, including my solicitors, and he consequently sent said letter!!!

      He can apply for any permission over any land, but if has has applied as owner and or not notified the real owner then his application is invalid.
      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.

          But you must object now before consent is granted or you will have to have a court overturn it.

          Your solicitor should also be making the representation too.

            Hello,

            I spoke with the council this morning and as it is a civil matter there is nothing for them to do unless my name as an interested party does not appear on the planning app, then they can take it up with him. However, emailed details to my sol and he said I should write to other party saying I am aware of what he is trying, I have made my feelings clear, and if he starts any work will take out an injunction to stop him. My sol doesn't deal with that sort of thing but he knows a man who does (!) My sol had already written to him to say the cellar/basement is mine and he must not do anything in or to it, so I will write as suggested today. Is there any other way I can object as you suggest please?

            Many thanks

              Unfortunately I still have no idea real understanding of what the problem is, or what it is that you feel that you need to achieve - because you're not explaining this.




              Let's be clear:
              The lease has NOT been varied - so you can forget about that idea.

              Lease requires all leaseholders to pay lessor service charges for insurance so sneaky managing agent tried to get leaseholders to pay broker directly which is an unusual arrangement where its not landlord and tenant and insurance is not paid via service charges to lessor.Could this be classed as an...

              by Tw1982
              Hi Guys,

              Wanted to start a separate post with a few legal queries regarding applications to the FTT for a formal determination for a breach of covenant.

              Firstly, is it called the FTT (LVT) or the property chamber? We know its changed names quite a few times, but would like...

              Is the freeholder in a company name? At the FTT a freeholder or its directors and or managing agent would normally bring a claim for determination for breach of lease against a leaseholder. For a leaseholders to bring a claim for breach of covenant you could possibly bring a claim if you are a member...

              As we are all aware the lease is a relationship between landlord and tenant. The lease is a contract with obligations and rights on both sides to observe and perform the covenants...so no managing agent or board can go against the lease even if agreed unanimously....to go against the lease is to induce...
