    Loft Conversion Consent - Absent Freeholder

    Hi,

    We are looking to have a loft conversion carried out however there are two names listed on the Freehold title and one is contactable and the other is absent. We'd also like to alter the layout as well. Can anyone help with how we can proceed with such works in terms of obtaining necessary consents etc to comply with the terms of the lease in the situation where one of the freeholders is absent?

    Just wondered if anyone has come across this and can offer advice please?

    Thank you.

    Thanks Gordon999

    You can see from above reply to Macromia that's your comment wouldn't be relevant to me. there is no managing agent. It's just me (FH) and LH in upstairs flat.
    Thanks for taking time to reply though....

    Thanks Macromia, I'm hoping not to have to request quotes to include extra 'contingency' as I know some building materials literally jumped by up to 80% pretty much overnight and so I / we could end up paying a hell of a lot more than we have to go with a 'protective' quote.

    It's only me...

    You could sue the other company for the money owed.

    You could show the last service charge demanded by previous managing agent . There should be a final summary of the service charge account.to show the unspent funds.

    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...

    Good questions.
    The fact that the cost of work means that Section 20 consultation is required doesn't necessarily mean that it is major work that will require a project manager and, although most leases will contain clauses that allow the cost of project management to be recovered from leaseholders,...

    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...
