  • Freeholder Premium to consent
    by Limply
    Hi all,

    I am looking at extending my leasehold flat by adding a newbuild next to the loft (will be erected on top of the first floor). I have just asked my freeholder for the process to follow. In the past they have asked me to pay a "Landlord’s premium for the consent to be established

    Your lease is only a long term rental contract. You have no ownership in the building which belongs to the freeholder.

    If you want to add a loft extension above the first floor, you should consider purchasing the freehold title first.

    How many leasehold flats in your building ? North or South London ?

    Under the terms of the lease, the freeholder appoints a managing agent (MA) to administer the service charge account and MA collects the service charge contributions from the leaseholders.

    If you allow the...

  • Another leasehold nightmare!
    by porkmarkets
    Hi all! Long time lurker here. I've used this forum for advice and ideas since purchasing my leasehold flat a few years ago which has been super useful but unfortunately I have become stuck. So I've decided finally to sign up and beg you all for some advice specific advise.

    I bought my...

  • Reply to Ground Rent review
    by AndrewDod
    I have not read the judgment but no notice is required for a residential ground rent increase that is specified in the lease. The FH does however need to invoice every ground rent request in the prescribed form -- so to at least that extent notice is given of the rate of rent requested at that time...

  • Ground Rent review

    United Scientific Holdings v Burnley Borough Council

    Does this case mean that for a residential lease failure to give notice of GR increase during the review period doesn't matter? I.e review can be at any time, even after specified review date?

  • Freehold shared parking question
    by Neeeeeeeeeek10
    We have bought a freehold flat which is one of the few flats in the building that has parking permission in the deeds. There are only a few spaces so it isn't allocated and only the flats that have it in the deeds can park in them. The person who owns the freehold to the shared areas and I assume the...

    Assuming "the forecourt" is not defined in the lease, I think the forecourt has to be what could reasonably be taken to be the forecourt of the building at the time the lease was granted.

    Just to repeat what I said above, the wording "To use forecourt for access for parking...

    Possibly. It comes down to the wording of the rent review provisions. It comes down to whether time is of the essence. Time is of the essence if the lease expressly says it is or if it has to be implied. It is implied if the rent review date coincides with a date on which a tenant can exercise a right...

    Hi Gordon999. I'm in London.

    Unfortunately a RTM company has already been ruled out by other leaseholders as no one wants to take any responsibility whatsoever. Some are ok with paying for works, others are resistant but the one thing they all seem to have in common is a lack of interest...
