  • Freehold confusion
    by davetg
    30 years ago I bought a flat from a friend. The freehold at the time was registered to my friend and the lady who owned the other flat. I understood at the time that I would replace the friend on the freehold but this never happened. This was not a problem until now as when work on the structure of...

    Your friend may not have to have his ID confirmed as the consideration will be far less than £5,000 and if he did form ID5 makes life a lot easier as it can be done via a video link...

    3, it feasible but we have already enforce the lease via small claims process, due to failure to pay for upkeep.
    so, we would be going again but just really need to understand what is allowable and what is not...

  • Section 20
    by Anna1985
    So the lease allows for the property to be kept in good condition.
    Thus, the shared hall could be spruced up no problem, but there is an issue with driveway - partially it belongs to the freeholder, partially to the ground floor leaseholder - it is made out of the old paving stones, it looks...

    So the only statement we have shows, the significant arrears of the aforementioned leaseholder, the only accounts we have ever received at handover were the balances and arrears of each leaseholder. This was never accounted for against actual costs. I presume we should have had this information. Can...

  • Old managing agents accounts
    by jazzythumper
    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...

    Thanks for the reply - both flats have separate 999 year leases so i guess the freehold is of little value. I will look in to TR1.

    I have always insured my flat separately and assumed the other flat was doing the same - is this a problem?...

    Thanks, I’m not sure that has been provided, if it hasn’t can we force them to produce this?

    Would it be a simple case of sending a letter with a timescale to respond and if not received followed by the magistrates route?...

    1.He will need to sign a TR1 and transfer title to you but it really needs to be done through a solicitor or land registry won't be happy with his ID.
    2. If you have a separate lease on your flat then freehold is not worth much, if not then it's worth what the flats worth at least .
    3. Cost...

    Thank you for the response Macromia this is a useful conversation.

    I can see why the current proportion might be justified, I have been paying 38% towards the buildings insurance the last 4/5 years. However, my dispute is now arising because we are unable to move forward with existing covenants,...
