    Any property solicitor will do, and based on the earlier extensions the company likely already has its own.

    SGclacy is sadly incorrect as the orignal value and term is irrelevant but is correct in where there is a value to an extension and no earlier agreement ( all too common) on lease extensions, giving some for nil and some at a cost ( barring provisions as above or sale to a non participant) is wrong.
    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.

      Thanks leasehold
      Glad a property solicitor would do, because my Deeds are kept with a conveyancer who I am going to use - but who is is not the same person as the company firm of solicitors. It is correct there is a value to my lease extension and besides one cannot fail to see there are overdue roof repairs but no service charge let alone no company bank account and one director says she cannot afford.

        sgclacy

        thanks for your answers. I will speak to my conveyancer also about surrender and regranting a new lease. Lease extension and freehold can take up some months causes worry and stops people gettingon with their day to day life. When we had in this property a landlord and not a sf life was much easier.

          sgclacy,

          Thanks for pointing to the Direction of executing a Deed of Variation myself. I now see that a Companies Act 2006 came to effect October 2009 that a Director can execute Deeds in the presence of an independent witness and in this way It appears I can execute the Deed myself.

          I asked my conveyancing Solicitor to check that and prepare DoV for me to xtend my lease.

          Thanks again because it is very useful advice.

            I have now found a Lawyer who I am instructing and who suggested to prepare my Deeds for lease extension in the same terms the others. Only after your suggestion I found out that I could do it this way. I had not known that directors can execute Deeds signing themselves in the presence of a witness. It is now in the LR guides. Thanks again.

              yes but you can't sign a lease in your capacity as a tenant and then in your capacity as a director or company secretary - you have a right when you own a share in the freehold company to have granted to you a 999 year lease - simply get the deed of variation drafted and ask one of the directors to sign.

                Thanks
                None of the other 2 directors will sign - this has been ongoing. The Lawyer has been instructed and says it can be done without the others signing.

                I do not know the motives of the others and sometimes personality problems develop.

                What worries me most is the sagging 2nd floor roof a frightful sight,my buyer lost his mortgage approval for this whereas the extension was less.

                  Well the lawyer is wrong- in this case you are granting yourself a considerable benefit with a lease extension, without any consideration which as a director in this situation you cannot.

                  It can easily be overturned.

                  Do it at your own risk.

                    I do not see the point. It will be the same benefit as the other 2 directors granted to themselves. Same terms will apply. The other directors not only refused to grant me extention but they granted 999 years to themselves and on top of that asked me a premium in order to grant me a lease. Besides, the value of the director’s flats is a lot highr than mine.

                      L/a have you seen such leases overturned? when and where?
                      My Lawyer said that the other 2 directors can contest but it would not be easy for them. If I did not take risks the only option would be to offer a premium and pay summs I have to borrow or sell.

                      The premium for my lease extension is extremely high (calculated by a surveyor recently) and it can be better put in other investments. I had found actually buyers for my property with the present lease.

                        Well you have answered you own question havent you.

                        If the premium for the other flat would be higher the company would have recieved a lot more of premium than your flat's and in turn your dividend, or other shareout, from that large flat would be larger than your proportional contribution to your premium.

                        Say
                        £300000 /3 shared by 3
                        £250000 /3 shared by 3
                        You £210000 /3 shared by 3

                        Do the math.

                          For erevry claim and contest there is a counter one.

                          The other directors run same risk of being contested. No premium was paid to me and I do not see why they should take unfair advantage and demand from me a premium. I do not know why the other directors act so. Perhaps they might have wanted in exchange of granting me a lease to aloow them various benefits such as change in the Covenants...

                                Hi,
                                Last April I bought a part share flat. I was given permission (in writing) by the housing association (HA) for my dog to live here.

                                Two weeks after I moved in I had some exchange with the HA saying that they had made a mistake. The management company (consisting of 2 directors,...

                                There was an article in today's London Evening Standard about why that policy will be very unpopular with short let landlords, which is who I think the policy is really aimed at. Basically it says that the cleanup of pet hairs is costly, and they often cause damage, although those are not so relevant...

                                Thanks. Again not something that you are not explained when buying.

                                I do understand the rule for not having pets in shared flats. However when the pet has lived in the premises for nearly a year, without incident (accept one time he barked at 8pm and that is why the director complained/decided...

                                I've recently received a similar letter. So far I've never entered into a dialog with them, I just ignored their ridiculous demands, and I don't intend on starting now. They can see the law is catching up with their racketeering and they are making one last push for £££!

                                It's not really a social housing issue, although the shared ownership thing complicates things.

                                The same rules apply to all leaseholders, even if they are also members of the management company.

                                Where shared ownership complicates things, when there is also a Residents' Management...
