The Freeholder of my buy to let flat undertook a major rooftop development recently, adding flats to the block. Their ”Deed of Variation’ documents reflect the changes that this development has effected by taking into account the new flats in future service charge fees.
This seems ok and there is nothing no charge for this. However legal fees for incorporating the Deed of Variation into individual flat owners tenancy documents is left for individual leaseholders to pay.
This cost looks to be around £1000 per flat and is a bill I feel I should not have to pick up. Surely it is up to the developer/freeholder to foot this bill.
Many thanks Tessa
