    You don't have to get a formal valuation, although it is a probably a good idea, but if you are confident in your own valuation being accurate save some £££s.

    So don't instruct your surveyor.

    It is in the new leaseholders hands now, and there are strict time limits.

    You have done what you need to.

    Technically you are correct, but your solicitor will almost certainly advise you to wait until the notice expires.

    I went through the exact same scenario and several solicitors gave the same...

    You can apply to the FTT for the appointment of a manager.

    You do not need the support of the other leaseholders to do this, although it would obviously help.

    Agree, Lawcruncher sums it up pretty well I think.

    I think the problem arises because the non-demised garden has been split and fenced off between the 2 flats when it has not been demised to either, the third flat that has got a portion of the garden...

    I would say that taking a lodger would be a breach of the lease.

    However you could argue that if the lodger shares meals etc they are part of the 'family'

    There's is a significant risk that...

    andybenw,

    I have considered that, and it may well be the best solution.

    At the moment the back of the garden is a bit of a mess due to the state of the fence and the buyer has seen this, but I...

    Lawcruncher,

    I don't disagree with anything you have said, and my default position would be the same as yours normally.

    However you haven't seen the title plan, and to be honest that does...

    Lawcruncher,

    I totally agree with everything you say and if I felt strongly enough about it I would tell him to take a running jump. I'm in possession of the land, it has been that way for a long...

    Thanks for the replies.

    The neighbour has forwarded a surveyors report that supports his view.

    I think I will accept this and allow him to reinstate the border. This will involve relaying some...

    Is the solicitor an expert in this area of law?

    If you proceed it is likely to be tens of thousands £££.

    Not worth it, but you should do it to...

    It's 20 years since the freehold was sold. The fact you became aware of R2FR 6 months ago is pretty irrelevant. You knew it had been sold, you know it has been sold since. There is no grey area here....

    I think you have absolutely no chance of successfully challenging the sale of the FH from 20 years ago.

    Ignorance of the law is no defence. You have been aware the FH has changed several times...
