  1. Hi I am new to this web site and I would like to hear from people who have had dealings with difficult Freeholders My neighbour and I intend to buy the freehold of our property. Dobern Properties (The Kingston Brothers) are the freeholders, I would be grateful to get advice from other people who have dealt with them. I am well aware of their ruthless bullying style of management so I need to be well prepared before I proceed. Thanks
  2. Hi this may not be something you can comment on but will try it anyway! I own a 999 year lease(virtual freehold) on a cafe and just recently the landlord asked me if I would like to purchase the freehold on the cafe and the 8 flats above, in other words the freehold of the whole building. The 8 flats are mostly sold on a 999 year lease. We didn't discuss a price but I don't think it would be a frightening price and would be based on the yield the flats generate which is around £5000 pa in ground rent. My question is would it be beneficial to own the freehold or more bother than its
  3. Garages don't come up for sale very often round here but there's a freehold one for sale just now. It's at the back of a block of flats which are leasehold and the driveway / tarred area to the garages would come under that leasehold. The seller hasn't paid any fees or service charge for the past 6 years. Can anyone give me advice please without me going to the expense of hiring a solicitor? Thank you
  4. An interesting scenario for some advise please: Completed on a property end Jan 2016. At the bottom of the property is a garage which was within our boundary and part of the premises on the land registry search. The property was being sold as leasehold. When coming up to completion our solicitor told us that the garage was not being sold as part of the property as the seller had already promised it/sold it to the neighbour. The seller had done this without completing any of the required legal paperwork with the land registry. At completion we were told that as a condition for the
  5. My Mum owns the freehold to her flat - one of 16. Most of the flats are owned as second homes (It is at the seaside) The management committee have a rule that the flats cannot be commercially let/ rented - they can only be occupied by the owners and their families. My question is: is such a rule enforceable ? Thank you for reading !
  6. I am trying to get a hold of the lease hold information of a property. I want to know what they have to pay in ground rent, what rules they have to follow, what they can and cannot do as terms of the leasehold. Another forum told me to send an OC2 form to the land registry. But I dont see anything about a lease on what was sent back. Is the following documents the right ones they should of sent me?
  7. I have, I hope, a quick question regarding the subdivison of the cost of Building Insurance for a converted house. The house has been converted into three flats two downstairs and one upstairs. the upstairs flat occupies the whole of the first floor and is two bedroomed and the two ground floor flats occupy less than half of the floor (though they both have a rear extension). Is there a general rule for proportioning the cost of the Buildings Insurance for each flat and does the leaseholder pay towards the cost. regards eeeni
  8. Hello I am hoping someone could advise me. A few years ago we bought a shop from the owner who also owned the freehold of the whole building which included our shop, another shop and several flats above. We have a standard commercial lease, we are the first tenants of the shop so we hold the head lease. Since then the landlord has sold the freehold to an investment company but our landlord took a 999 year lease on the ground floor of the property which is basically the 2 shops. The landlord was paying a peppercorn rent to the new freeholder and we paid our rent and service charge to
  9. We own a buy to let flat in a converted office building. There are 12 flats altogether. We are expecting the current owners to offer to sell the freehold of the building in the near future. On the face of it, buying the freehold between us sounds like a good idea, but we don't really know what the pros and cons might be. Since the landlord can already get us to pay for things like a new roof, would we be any worse off owning a share in the freehold? One of the mortgage conditions was that they wouldn't lend on freehold flats, which is partly why we're dubious, but other than notifyin
  10. Freehold Purchase Problem Collective Enfranchisement, nominations delayed. Hello Everyone, I’m in a situation where I need some honest advice. In nutshell, we are late in sending nominations and now freeholder refusing to sell freehold. I, with four other leaseholders are buying freehold of our whole block which is having six flats inside. One of the leaseholder is not interested and he is the only one out. The freeholder company went into administration and appointed administrators sent all of us letters as qualifying tenants under 187 Act Sect 5A to accept the offer
  11. I live in a house which was entered on the land registry in 1956 as a freehold property belonging to my grandfather. My parents (my mother moving in once she met my father) and subsequently myself grew up in the house along with my grandparents and still live there today. My grandfather died in 1987 and everything went to my grandmother - but at the time she died in 2007 she had severe dementia, no savings and we were caring for her 24 hours a day. And since her only family were living in the house/paying all the bills etc there was no probate and we could find no will. Since th
  12. Hi all, I own an upstairs flat in a block of 2. We have the standard criss-cross lease arrangement i.e. we own each other's freehold and lease to each other. Sometime ago the ground floor flat got repossessed.The lender though for some reason does not have a charge over the freehold title (I guess an error was made with the title/lease originally?). What issue does this cause the lender with resale. I am the freeholder and they haven't contacted me. Do they *need* my consent for this? i.e. they can't resell the flat until they have a charge over the freehold? What happens if I say "
