    Hi all,

    I'm new to the site, so I hope I'm posting to the appropriate forum.

    I am looking to extend my lease. I live in London SW14 (Mortlake/Barnes). I have 89 years left on the leasehold, and I've had the lease for 15 years. I'm recently married and ultimately want to put...

    Are you the first leaseholder? Or did you buy the lease from a previous owner?

    Best value is, probably, going to be if you do a look up on google since you'll get access to multiple sources with reviews. Then, there is whether you want to do it online versus physically going into a building. Personally, I prefer the online route because it's cheaper, more convenient and less hassle...

    Ok thanks! Apologies if I've been inappropriate, I just don't know where to turn for referrals as I don't know anyone who has ever been in my position.

    As for local firms versus non-local, is the only real advantage proximity to show ID, etc? Cost of travel versus high fees may make it...

  • Coronavirus - Tenant demanding Deep clean of common areas & hand sanitiser installed
    by LeeMac
    Hi I wonder if anyone can provide any advice?

    My tenant is demanding that l and/or the Freeholders deepclean the common areas of the building and install a hand sanitiser by the communal front door.

    I have a share of the freehold and one of the flats in the converted building...

    I never said that your link did contain that wording, because clearly it doesn't.

    But neither does it contain the wording that it is 'no longer a highly infectious disease', which is what you were trying to have people believe by making just that assertion and then posting the link supposedly...

    Hi John, I think it's frowned upon to name companies on this forum so post may get removed but I use Margaret Ilori of Capulet Solicitors, not far from you who gives a good personal service and is familiar with leasehold law.
    Advantage of a local firm is you may need to attend and show your ...

  • Reply to Rent Act restricting ground rent
    by Section20z
    My apologies for not being clearer, the lease doesn't allow the freeholder to pick a ground rent at random, it simply rises commensurate with sale price which is quite a common mechanism and in this case gives rise to a new ground rent of £650.
    The only query I have is in respect of the caveat...

  • Rent Act restricting ground rent
    by Section20z
    One of my ground rent leases has a mechanism for the rent to rise on any assignment "......provided that such rent shall never exceed the amount which would bring this lease within the provisions of the Rent Act 1968 or any Act amending or re-enacting the same"
    The rent should be £650pa...

    You'll no doubt also be aware that what a lease (or other contract) doesn't say can be just as important.

    What is it that you think you have to gain from refusing to accept that this virus is extremely contagious?

    You really don't have an argument here, you're just making yourself...
