Can we insist that the freehold for the properties is sold separately from the leases?

Thank you all for your help. Unfortunately, as qualifying tenants, we will not be taking this any further. We did contact the Leasehold Advisory, the information available was great and we will keep the address for future reference. We sent them a question but they said they normally respond within 15 days, which was too long. We did take other legal advice.

The good thing that has come out of it is that we are all more aware of the legal position and we now know a lot more of the leaseholders.

Should you be interested, the property is a marina development and will go to auction with Acuitus on the 19th May. They have said that there will not be a reserve but who knows. It would be nice to think that someone more responsible than the original developer will buy it, Simon.... Read More

DPS ADR process any experiences?

I agreed to ADR, sent them proof that the rent was owing and photos of the damage and they repaid the deposit to me. On another occasion, where the tenant was disputing some of the deposit, I had no forwarding address so could not sue. They tried to contact the tenant, she didn't respond and again I was repaid the deposit. If you have good proof I don't think you will have a problem.

Prospective Tenants not happy for visit - Should this ring alarm bells?

It may not indicate a problem but I would ask myself why they are reluctant and are they going to refuse entry if they become tenants. We have recently started asking to see people in their homes and have met no resistance, though the agents were surprised.... Read More
