Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Could you please give me a little more information, as to what covenant has been breached?
There have been additions to the property but the buyers MAIN concern is that he wants to make loads of additions and alterations to the property which require lessor consent. Is this still needed if we bought the Freehold?
Thanks for your reply.
The Buyer has absolutely nothing to worry about. As the Freehold is now owned by you, the previous Freeholder has no interest in the property at all- you, and once your Buyers have purchased, would in effect being suing yourselves!
On another side point, as you have now acquired the Freehold, all Leasehold covenants in the Lease are now obsolete.
I hope this clarifies matters.
That's brilliant thank you so much. Is there some law I can quote?
Hi- there is no case law or statute I can give you, I'm afraid.
All I can say is you now own the Freehold, so you can't sue yourself!!!
