I seem to have a slight variation on an old problem and my searches for it do not yield an answer.
The management company for the Freeholder is demanding £138 for a notice to sublet. I have referenced the tribunal findings that a maximum of £40 is allowed for such things, but they point out that it is not an ‘administration fee’ but a ‘notice to sublet’ fee and the leasehold valuation tribunal has ruled in the past that it can’t touch these fees (why I cannot understand as it seems to just be a respelling of administration). They won’t detail to me what is involved either.
In my lease it says ‘…unless there shall previously have been executed at the expense of the Tenant and delivered to the Management Company respectively for retention by it a Deed in duplicated expressed to be made between the Landlord of the first part the Tenant of the second part and the Management Company of the third part and the person or persons to whom it is proposed to assign sublet..’
Any tips on breaking through here and getting the £138 fee dropped to something sensible?
