    Compulsory Purchase Order to Nonresident Leasholders

    Hi all. I own an excouncil flat in a block managed by council. A few year ago, thry underwent renovation charging my seller 26k to replace pvc windows and doors, and it's a 3 bed duplex. You know what it is. Since 2 years ago they started regenerating talks. Last year they issued a report on the scheme, in which resident homeowners can swap to new built while nonresident homeowners will be issued CPO with 10% home loss compensation. If I wanted I have to move there to live after sorting out my btl mortgage. But is there away for nonresident homeowners to request to have the rights as resident homeowners? To be treated the same? The fact is it's not a road project so they don't have any properties to provide to us. It's inequal treatments as they will build a huge complex from 9+ council buildings. Thanks.

    Does this apply to conservatory or orangery at the back of the house as well? Do we need some kind of permission or certificate before/after the development if its not affecting any of your neighbours? Thanks

If you don't get satisfaction write to the Planning Inspectorate - find out where yours is. If you win your case the council have to pay to have the...

    Dear All,

    The end of my garden backs onto a private access lane. At the bottom of a majority of gardens there are garages that back onto the lane the garages are between 3-3.5 meters in height. This is mirrored on the opposite side of the lane.

    The house opposite mine...

    Your lease includes the garden. Unless the lease provides otherwise, this will include all the airspace over the ground. Accordingly, you have complete control over the airspace which will be above the proposed extension.
