Sale of Freehold without Freeholders approval?

I may be wrong here, but I thought that if a freehold was sold it had to be offered to the tenants (leaseholders) first, under a right of first refusal? It sounds as though it was not offered so it may have been an unlawful transaction.

It is not made clear whether the other freeholders knew about it, if they did surely they would have stopped a cheap sale. Otherwise it reduces the value of their share of the freehold.... Read More

Freeholder wants to charge for consent to let property

Not much point in commenting until you know what the lease says.

The only question, did the freeholder know from day one (ten years ago) that you were letting the flat out, if so, and he did not stop you then I would have thought you could take it that he had given consent. I don't see how they can claim retrospective charges now.... Read More

What can I do about Flue? Help please

If he does that it gives permission to the flue overhanging the garden. That's a no no. One day in the future he may want to use the land next to the wall for something and the flue could stop it happening.... Read More

General Election 8th June - Who on earth do landlords vote for?

Everyone votes for whom they choose, and lives with the result, but to vote UKIP you might as well stay at home that day. They could not even get elected when they were riding the top of the waves. Their only MP got in as he was Tory MP in his constituency before changing sides, not that I would trust a man who jumps ship each time he thinks it is sinking.

Yes the Tory's did s**t on us last time, but the culprits have now left the party, it was just a game to Cameron and Osbourne, they didn't give a toss for the voters just their own ego's. They just wanted to look popular. We were an easy target, everybody hates us. Now the Conservatives will not be tied to a Manifesto that stops them raising taxes. Their only choice before was stealth taxes, such as removing financial relief, putting up car tax, and the outrageous probate charges. The country is sagging under the weight of debt and the endless benefit culture, they need to find the money somewhere. Hopefully they will have other means to get the money in and stop bashing us.... Read More
