    Lease Details

    I often download lease details when viewing auction websites, noticing some leases inform the holder of such things as no letting permitted etc.

    My question is can when you extended the lease insist that these issues be altered, is there some kind of panel where you can have these issues fairly changed or are you stuck with the decision of the free holder?

    You can ask in negotiations with the landlord and if you cannot agree the terms of a statutory renewal the LVT will rule.However your presumption is faulty, particularly on fairness, there has to be a good reason for needing a change not simply that you prefer it or would like it or it would be beneficial or seems odd to you. leases are what they are take them or leave them the basis of altering them is one of rectifying defects, and when it comes to a commercial arrangement such as letting the landlord is free to decline.
    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.

      • Share of feehold/shared service charges?
        by Stu1020
        Hi there,

        I'm new to the forum and looking for advice on a sticky freehold situation.

        I own a two-bed flat in a converted building with two one-beds. The lease states that a fair proportion is payable towards the service charge. However, there has been a running agreement of...

        Since your flat has 2 bedrooms and other flats have one bedroom, you should keep the existing 38:31:31 split as fair contribution to the annual service charge account.

        For lease extension, the cost is mainly solicitors charges plus registration charge at Land Registry and Mortgage Lender.(...

        by Gordon999
        The S20 consultation with leaseholders is required for any planned works which exceed £250 cost per flat.

        If any planned works are quoted below £1000, you could place the order on the supplier with lowest quote. .

        If the freeholder is self- managing the building maintenance,...

        Hi. I have a freehold after selling a leasehold flat in a block of 4 flats. We don't currently have a managing agent, so these duties currently fall to me (I am holding off appointing a managing agent whilst the leaseholders consider whether they want to RTM).

        The block needs some maintenance...

        You appear to have bought into the flat knowing at the time your share is 38% and having owned the flat feel that this is unjust.

        Did you raise any concerns questions at the time of purchase that in a three flat split you would be paying more than 33.33% . Could it be argued that the unfairness...

        The cost of extending a lease is not a service charge expense so there is no reason to allocate it on the 38/31/31 basis, your offer to split those costs equally seems to be reasonable. It is up to the freeholder to decide what is fair and reasonable for the service charges and it is up to the other...

        by eagle2
        Unless the handover took place at the end of the financial year, it is the RTM's responsibility to produce the annual accounts. You could try making a formal complaint against the agent to supply copies of all supporting documents, it should belong to a redress scheme. The difficulty is that the agent...

      • Old managing agents accounts
        by jazzythumper
        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...

        davetg,

        The property should be registered so the land registry should hold a copy of the leases. You would need to look at the leases to see who is responsible for what but normally in a maisonette situation the freeholder would insure and maintain the structure, foundation and roof with...

        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...
