Landlords Alliance – Emergency Euro Elections Statement21:09 PM, 21st May 2019
About 3 days ago 70
I purchased a leasehold flat 7 years ago which had been renovated a bathroom had been split to house a separate WC and wooden floors had been laid throughout the flat. It was on a short lease and I extended the lease.
At the time of purchase my solicitor didn´t pick up on the fact that the small layout change (it is only noticeable by a line dividing) and also that the lease says no wooden floors and that there wasn´t a License to Alter for this work.
I am now selling and we are about to exchange and the buyers solicitor has asked if we have any License to Alter for this, we don´t.
The owners of the flats are in the process of purchasing the Freehold (most of which have wooden floors in their flats!)
How do I stand on the License to Alter can I tell the buyer that I am selling it without and if they want to follow through with a retrospective License it´s down to them?
Is 7 years over a threashold of coming up with this paperwork?
