    Reassignment of Long Lease following death

    Can anybody please tell me what the process will be once the death of a long leaseholder takes place. Does the representative of the Tenant need to request the Landlord reassign the Lease, if to be transferred to another family member.

    it is held by the estate, if the estate transfers it to a family member, whether by the will or sale, it is an assignment and notice msut be given.
    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.

      What happens if there is a dispute on the demised premises with the Landlord, property extended without formal regularization of the Lease, can Landlord realistically refused to assign? Thanks

        If there is breach of the lease they can withold consent- regularise it by retrospective consent- or assert waiver if they knew about it and have since demanded ground rent and or service charge.

          Thank you for the replies. The RMC (not an RTM) was setup by the builders when the property was built so has always been in existence (since 1980). The insurance has always been arranged by the Freeholder and paid for by the RMC. The lease states that the RMC will keep the buildings insured as directed...

          I am a Director of an RMC and the Freeholder insists it is their right to arrange the insurance. Have I the same right as an RTM to take over the arrangement of insurance?

          Hi, I hope I can write this in a clear way that makes sense!

          We bought a leaseholders flat in 2016, the next year we bought the limited company that held the freehold. This was done as no other leaseholder were interested in buying the freehold a few months prior to us buying our leasehold...

          The company accounts shows the share capital at £2, it was holding the property on behalf of you ( beneficiary ) .

          Since you have received £14K and £12K from disposal = £26K , your capital gain will be £26K - £18K = £8K .

          You are entitle to the annual cgt allowance...

          I am the owner/occupier of a leasehold first floor flat in a converted property consisting of two flats. The freeholder owns and is the occupier of the ground floor leasehold flat. There is a passageway/right of way from the road along the side of the building to my ground floor front door entrance....

          Absolutely not! Both the right and covenant are clear. Ask the freeholder why he considers he should not be bound by the terms of the lease. If he insists he is not bound, suggest that in that case you are not bound by the terms of your lease either....

          Sydaton,

          They are the accountants that the managing agents use. We have literally left it all up to them and have been hands off (unless there were issues with stuff that need authorising by us). Our managing agents are also company secretaries for the Ltd company that we own.

          divadee, you mention the company accountant in the first post but then mention that you were relying on your managing agents. Are they one and the same?

          Where did the £14k paid for the lease extension go?

          I did look at buying the freehold a few years ago but there solicitor quotes up to £4000 costs and I believe that was more then the value of the lease itself !
