    When departing leaseholder passes right to extend lease over to incoming leaseholder

    Can anyone tell me how long does the new leaseholder have to extend the lease after purchasing, when notice has been passed on by the departing leaseholder to the incoming leaseholder to extend the lease? (i have re-written this a few times because I felt it doesn't make sense, so apologies is it is confusing to read)!

    The notice process runs as normal, all the assignment does it treat B the purchaser as having the same rights as A the vendor who served notice.

    Did you or the solicitor get and respond to a Notice with a counter Notice?


    rather than type it out I'll do a Jeffrey and I will borrow LEASE's list of time limits

    Procedures and Statutory Timelimits

    leaseholder serves S41 Information Notice (discretionary)
    Landlord must respond within 28 days
    leaseholder serves S42 Tenant's Notice
    The "valuation date" will be fixed as the date of service of the S42 Tenant's Notice
    Landlord may request additional information, but he must do so within 21 days of receipt of the Tenant's Notice
    leaseholder's must respond to his request within 21 days
    Landlord must serve a Counter-Notice by the date specified in the notice. This date must be at least two months from the date of service of the Tenant's Notice
    Where the landlord fails to serve the Counter-Notice leaseholders must apply to court within six months for a vesting order
    After service of the Counter-Notice either party may apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal. This must be done no sooner than two months from, but within six months of, the date of service of the Counter-notice
    Leasehold Valuation Tribunal determination becomes final after 28 days. Appeals must be made within this period to the Lands Tribunal but only with the leave of the LVT
    After Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decision is final landlord must provide draft lease within 14 days
    Period of two months after decision becomes final for parties to enter into the new lease
    If the period above elapses without entry into new lease, then leaseholder must apply to court within a further two months requiring the Landlord to meet his obligations
    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.

      We haven't been served with anything yet, but as we told the new purchaser to sling his hook (after giving him a price for an informal lease extension, then being harassed by him on other matters)!
      OK I thought that when the incoming leaseholder took on the right that they may be allowed a long time to actually start the process. So have I got it right that when notice is served they only have the time limit above? If they do not go through with it in the time scales above what happens? Do they have to then wait 2 more years? Just thinking of all the scenarios!

        Ah no as said, the vendor A must have served notice while they were the owner. If they don't serve notice then the new owner has to wait 2 years or agree to your terms.

            You do not appear to hold sufficient information to make a claim against the freeholder at this stage. I suggest that you apply to the FTT to challenge the charges. You would then be able to ask the Tribunal to direct the freeholder to disclose further information....

            Since obtaining the RTM and changing the managing agent, we have never been given full accounts / receipts for the previous year(s). We believe that as the old freeholder and leaser holder of one of the flats were represented by the same solicitor that prior to the sale of the freehold, we were subsidising...

            With just two properties involved, and you being a resident, your best option would probably be to agree a time to talk through the proposed work and the need to skip the full 30 days that are supposed to be allowed for each stage of consultation.
            If the other leaseholder has any major concerns,...

            Hi LZ Community

            Just wondering if anyone's had/having any issues with S20 and allowing leaseholder 30 days to review estimates, raise concerns etc.

            Building material prices have fluctuated massively since covid and brexit.
            with a combination of Brexit, impact from russia/ukraine...

            Your friend may not have to have his ID confirmed as the consideration will be far less than £5,000 and if he did form ID5 makes life a lot easier as it can be done via a video link...

            30 years ago I bought a flat from a friend. The freehold at the time was registered to my friend and the lady who owned the other flat. I understood at the time that I would replace the friend on the freehold but this never happened. This was not a problem until now as when work on the structure of...

            3, it feasible but we have already enforce the lease via small claims process, due to failure to pay for upkeep.
            so, we would be going again but just really need to understand what is allowable and what is not...

            So the lease allows for the property to be kept in good condition.
            Thus, the shared hall could be spruced up no problem, but there is an issue with driveway - partially it belongs to the freeholder, partially to the ground floor leaseholder - it is made out of the old paving stones, it looks...

            So the only statement we have shows, the significant arrears of the aforementioned leaseholder, the only accounts we have ever received at handover were the balances and arrears of each leaseholder. This was never accounted for against actual costs. I presume we should have had this information. Can...

            Thanks for the reply - both flats have separate 999 year leases so i guess the freehold is of little value. I will look in to TR1.

            I have always insured my flat separately and assumed the other flat was doing the same - is this a problem?...
