Why did you ask for consent then?
I have been approached by a neighbour who 'thinks' my garden has encroached into his by around a metre. He has just cleared his garden and been looking at the land registry title plans.
I have no...
I am trying to help, although I have little sympathy as someone who suffers excessive noise from wooden floors above :(
It all hangs on what the consent letter says and the terms of...
So consent was granted subject to there being no complaints?
Now there has been complaints?
Wooden floors in flats cause massive problems, you knew there were noise issues and you still went...
The answers to most of these questions will be in the leases.
You have a copy of the downstairs lease, have you got one for the upstairs flat?
Its possible there isn't one but more likely there is....
It will be a Section 257 HMO unless-
It meets at least the post 1991 building regs (as snorkerz says)
And less than 2 thirds of the flats are owner occupied.
I don't think council tax has any...
There is a calculator provided by another member that you might find useful-
The ground rent and...
Yes, that is the correct form.
In this case you are the landlord and the leaseholders are the tenants.
I can't see why enfranchisement will help you at this stage.
The development is nearly complete. It may have been an option before work started.
You need to start legal action immediately to halt...
The first thing you should do is use the calculator in the link provided in post 6.
This will give you an idea as to how reasonable the FH quote is in relation to a statutory lease extension.
They cannot enfranchise as they own the leases to six flats in a block of six, therefore do not qualify to enfranchise.
This is the mentioned thread with calculator for a statutory lease extension.
It really should be...
Or do nothing, smug in the knowledge the FH is unable carry out development.
Sounds like he's trying to back up his ridiculous valuation by getting planning permission in place.
Maybe he will...
If you haven't already I suggest you read Leaseholdanswers FAQ at the top of this forum on buying the freehold-
Nothing particularly ground breaking or shocking in this program about the London rental market.
But the room with the tree growing through it, literally, was an eye opener.
Things sometimes go wrong
Yes, If the Right of First Refusal applied to the sale of the freehold you should have been offered the right to purchase the FH along with the other leaseholders.
The new FH is required to serve...
Have your tenants involved environmental health? They may or may not be able to help.
Write to your freeholder quoting the relevant clauses in your lease that are being breached and asking them to...
As long as he or an adult member of his family has lived there for the last 12 months or more it is exempt.
You already mentioned where to get the form.
oyezforms.co.uk supply them, I'm sure other legal form suppliers are available :)
The form you need is L&T71A
The procedure you need to follow is here-
If you are happy with the agreed price, then you serve a section 5a notice on the...
You also need to read your lease. If you haven't got it you can also get that from the Land Registry.

Well unless your FH is a complete numpty, they are almost certainly going to request a valuation that you have to pay for.
You have a ball park figure, I doubt anyone on here can give you anything...
Sounds like it is probably exempt from RFR.
Page 5 of the document I gave you the link to deals with exemptions.
If the transfer is between associated companies then RFR doesn't apply.
Even if it...
