    I think you'll need 4 out of 7 to go ahead assuming flat 7 is being made available for lease.

    If the garages aren't leased to the leaseholders then you probably can't have them but if they are...

    What was the written reply to the question your solicitor asked about the boiler pre-contract?

    The electrician is probably wanting to upgrade the consumer units to each flat to the latest electrical installation regs. It's a common ploy for getting more work. I was advised that this is not...

    I think I'm right that if you are changing the roof profile when viewed from the front then you can't do it.

    I can recommend Brethertons for this exact situation.

    All you need to hope is that the current freeholder and other block's leaseholders are not stupidly stubborn in thinking they can ignore the...

    A leaseholder can influence how the directors and MA run the property...but it takes gathering support from your neighbours and calling an EGM!

    As you have a lender involved then it is most likely that the lender won't lend until the title is clear and registered.
    Lenders have a large book of rules which the solicitor has to satisfy.

    Surely its normal for a MA to charge for his project management and supervision of major works? It is a business after all!

    If the leaseholder is in a part of the building that can be separated vertically from its neighbours, i.e. nobody above or below, then he has a statutory right under English law to gain his freehold....

    No. Because the leaseholder has no statutory rights, in this regard, other than lease extension.

    The leaseholder can of course convince you with loads of cash!

    You seem on good terms with your fellow lessees, why don't you collectively enfranchise the freehold? You will then have full control, albeit collectively, of your building and its costs.

    Way back in the early 90's I think I'm right in saying we had somewhat rampant inflation. We certainly had bank lending interest rates of 16%!

    You'd be hard pressed to sell with such a short lease unless it was a cash transaction as lenders don't like short leases.
