  • How much can the freeholder charge for registering details of a sublet?
    by Joubert
    I am a director of a Freehold Company of a small block of 28 flats in a popular residential area.

    Over the past few years the majority of flats have been purchased by investors who sublet the flats on ASTs.

    Although the leases between the Freehold Company and the lessees are...

    If the lease states that you may charge a registration fee of £10, that is the amount you may charge, you are not entitled to increase the charge unless the lease specifically allows an increase. Even then you would be limited to a reasonable amount and £100 would be considered to be unreasonable....

    In a block of 24, unfortunately one flat has become dilapidated. The new owner has bought cheaply. She is now demanding the Freeholder pays to refurbish it claiming they have been negligent. Is there a reasonable case ?

    Thanks all. It was a great price, significantly below market value, plus in further negotiations a reduction to pay for any further work. This was identified by a surveyor. She is not clueless.....
    Artful in my research I read that can only claim for her ownership period.
    It is all i...

    The previous owner might have had a case. The new owner I think only for claims for problems during their ownership. But ianal.

    Presumably she got a great price as it was so dilapidated

    What utter nonsense.

    The new buyer should have had a survey before they purchased.
