    Tenant's Right of First Refusal - extremely confused!

    1. Does the Act apply if the landlord (in this case a limited company of which 9 out 11 leasehold flats are members) wishes to sell internally (i.e. write a new lease) a spare vacant garage which is currently part of the freehold title i.e. not leased or demised to any lease.

    2. Same question as above for the roof void above one of two top floor flats?

    3. Same question as above for the air space above one of two top floor flats?

    4. If yes to any of above is there a way round it e.g devising an internal marketing policy whereby the company invites bids from each flat-owner?

    Thanks all.

    No as the freehold is not being sold, leases are being granted.
    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.

      there is more than one example that cites the Act where a lease of air is being granted... if you google air space + tenants right of first refusal.

      one example....http://uk.practicallaw.com/9-380-954...e=publicsector

      what am i missing?

        My answer remains the same you are missing the details. The grant of single leases in this case.

            Do you have insurance for the contents? Maybe there is loss of rent cover included there.

            The flat I rent out has suffered from recurrent leaks from upstairs since I purchased it, 4 leaks in 4 years. It's caused me to lose one tenant already. I feel like there is no incentive for the owner upstairs to sort the problem (check the plumbing etc) as the cost is always covered by insurance and...

            This is the important question, what are the reasons for non payment?

            Have demands been correctly served including the correct summaries of rights and obligations?

            Are the landlord obligations under the lease being carried out?

            Have service charge end of year accounts...

            Hello, I am new here so please excuse me if this question has already been asked, but a search has drawn a blank.

            I am a director of an RTM of a property with 25 flats. I would be very grateful if anyone here can advise whether a resident who is more than six months in arrears with his...

            Is there a restrictive covenant in the title of the commercial-property owner (CPO) giving you and the other lessee a right of way over the land?

            Is the CPO a freeholder or leaseholder of the land?

            With regard to the point related to '20 years' you are referring to adverse...

            The RTM can make a money claim online but as this enquiry concerns service charges the lessee will have the right to have the service charges determined unless already agreed. Depending upon the lessee's response to the claim, the County Court may refer the claim to the FTT.

            What are the...

            Thanks for your response.

            All costs are being covered by the management company. So currently I'm not actually losing out so I'm not really sure what I'm claiming for! More just the stress of it all. And the potential loss of earning and making unrentable/saleable as you say. Yes the floor...

            Hoping to get some clarification,

            If a flat (Outside Greater London) with 60 years left is sold for £110,000 and comparable properties with longer leases attain £160,000

            What is the relativity in this case?

            Would it be £110000 less 5.5% (to estimate for no act...
