    Subletting Consent Query

    Hi All,
    I have just joined this forum looking for some help.
    We have decided to lease out our apartment and we have received a notice from the managing agent {Mod - name removed} to the affect that they are demanding £105 registration fee and £37 for each tenancy agreement/extension we put in place with the same initial tenant or £105 for every new tenant.
    the leasehold states :- "...grant any underlease of the demised premises without the prior written consent of the lessor or its agents (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) AND ALSO to pay or cause to be paid to the lessort such reasonable fee at the same time as the granting of every such consent "

    this looks to be the same wording as in :-

    However I am unclear.

    Would appreciate a more trained eye looking over this.

    I do note that there was a challenge in 2010 from a tenant against the previous managing agent , where the definition of "reasonable" however this was before the court case above

    I am confused as it appears to be the case that the Tribunal seems to change its mind as to what is "reasonable" ...

    Personally I dont feel £105 for a registration is a reasonable charge given the minimal work involved

    Am I able to quote the case ? or has this now been superceded with a new definition of "reasonable"....

    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.
