    You need to take a copy of your lease and consult an experienced L&T solicitor.

  • Building works going on to our carport but without consent!!!

    The freeholder upstairs told us last week that he had decided the car port (which we share and own, which came with our property) that it needed knocking down as unsafe. Although his side is unsafe as we maintain our half and clear the top of it regularly!!

    The next day there were people clearing the top of the carport and knocking it down making our garage out of use and driveway unusable. Today they have completely knocked our side of the wall down (which had a window), cleared the rubbish and piled it on top of our garden.

    Question 1. Is he allowed to do this without anything in writing and our consent?
    Question 2. As payment hasnt been mentioned and agreed, can he bill us for the work he has/will be carried out without our permission?
    Question 3. Will he have to re-build the carport to the same standard as before? im not sure if he planning to re-build or not but this came with our property.

    Answers asap please.
    Thank you

    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.

    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...
