What is a leasehold management?
Leasehold management covers a range of different aspects when it comes to leasehold properties. This includes, but is not limited to, new residential leases, Deeds of Variation and Licence to Alter and Right to Manage. At Birchall Blackburn Law we offer legal advice and guidance on all elements of leasehold management.
What leasehold management services do you offer?
Right to Manage claims
The Right to Manage involves leaseholders taking over the management of the building by way of a Right to Manage company. The company can choose different contractors to help manage the building or they can manage the building themselves. The previous freeholder can also apply to be a member of the company. We offer legal advice and guidance on RTM claims from instruction through to the transfer of management obligations.
New residential leases
New residential leases are essential for property developers looking to convert their building, or even undeveloped land, into flats. We have years of experience in creating new residential leases and amending existing leases. We’re also instructed to amend existing leases for leaseholders if they own a freehold with other leaseholders.
Residential Deeds of Variation
If you wanted to change the terms in your lease then you’ll need a Deed of Variation. One of the most common reasons people need a Deed of Variation is down to finding an error in the lease if you’re buying or selling a leasehold property. The lease may have been granted decades ago, so it may not contain modern lease clauses.
Licence to Alter
If you’re a leaseholder and you want to make changes to your property, then you’ll need the written permission of your freeholder. This is called a Licence to Alter and involves changes such as:
- Structural alterations
- Replacing windows
- New carpets, laminate or wooden flooring
- Moving a kitchen or bathroom or adding an ensuite
We work with freeholders and leaseholders to draft licences to alter, ensuring that everyone is happy for the work to go ahead
