    I don't think that is what the lease says. I would suggest it means a new leaseholder must sign a deed to say they will uphold any covenants and pay all charges, etc.

    It is certainly possible to buy the freehold of one house but there are sometimes problems. You would need to buy the leasehold and then use a legal method to enfranchise the freehold.

    If the loft is in your demise why is there a problem. The stairs could be considered a removable ladder?

    Buying a repossession is usually better value. The one downside in my experience is that the historical deeds are lost.

    9m x 8.5m is pretty huge for a garden building.

    I suggest you check on the footprint allowed. I suspect it may not comply for permitted development which is a maximum of a double garage which is...

    But isn't the enfranchisement claim deemed to have been withdrawn if not completed within a certain length of time? A matter of months iirc.
    After deemed withdrawal I thought the process had to be...

    On our leasehold house the freeholder/headleaseholder ie landlord is responsible for the window frames and the leaseholder is responsible for the glass.

    Why not move to a better insulated flat or even a house? (No leasehold problems with a house!) This might be better than getting further wound up by your neighbour's noises.

    It might cost a bit to...

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

    Thanks

    Thanks guys, you are reflecting our own understanding. Unfortunately the man co board are being totally unreasonable and refusing to take any sensible advice.

    LHA- it's a bit more complex at this...

    Hi, our enfranchisement claim has progressed to the point where we now have the block freehold and are planning to merge our house leases to provide full individual freehold houses. (We were forced...

    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...

    You may also need to prove Building Regulations compliance if you plan to sell the flats either individually or as a whole.
