    Sorry to be dense but can you explain that a little more?

    Thanks

    I think Article 4 is to do with any planning decisions in the conservation area and gives the planners additional powers.

    It may be that your authority has specified fences in their Article 4. I...

    It's £250 per leaseholder, not a total cost of £250.

    How many leaseholders involved?

    My lease says costs associated with meeting legal obligations are payable by the leaseholders. Does yours...

    From what I have read they have given permission to sublet. End of subject. If the lease does not specify that repeated permission is needed then no such permission is required.

    Buy the property as a freehold. Let the flats as you wish until you want to sell. When you sell one or both flats, create the leases at that time as part of the sale. No need to do it before...

    Yes, complicated.

    Counsel's opinion (and he co-wrote that well known book) sided with the freeholder amazingly but he also gave us the alternative route that we have followed. :(clap): It's just...

    Be aware that the verticality test may not be as clear cut as you might think!

    You need to check the wording of your lease with respect to foundations and roof as it is possible for freeholders...

    What do the leases say?

    I would expect the leaseholders to pay for everything required for the maintenance of the building and their safety within it.

    The freeholder will want as much as he thinks he can get away with!

    If you do it by free negotiation you will not be able to contain his desire for cash and he will also want to cover his legal...

    You could spend a lot of time and maybe surveyor's fees trying to get £15100 down to £13100.
    I suspect £2000 is a very small percentage of the value of the flat in Clapham so it may be better to...

    Thanks for you replies. It's clearer now.

    The freehold completion has been delayed again, it's been a long and rocky road, so no urgency yet to get buildings insurance in place. Contents are...

    Surely your 'premium' is actually being granted an extended lease, just like your fellow freeholder but he's paying all the legal costs. Those legal costs, paid by him, will be several hundreds or...
