I've read a number of posts on this subject, but none seem to apply specifically to my lease, so I am hoping someone can advise me on this.
I have had a demand for £108 from Freehold Managers PLC for permission to sublet which from previous internet research seems to be possibly not applicable and even if applicable may be excessive.
I asked them to specify where in my head lease they can charge and the clause they've pointed out gives them the right to change £40+VAT (which is more reasonable) or "such higher fee....shall reasonably deem requisite".
The clause covers "any transfer assignment mortgage underlease" or "devolution of the Demised Premises".
My questions are:
1) Does the clause refer to or apply to subletting under an Assured Short Hold Tenancy Agreement (which I am using)
2) Can I challenge the fee to be more "reasonable" and if so how?
Thank you in advance for any advice.
