Hi thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. A deed and a lease are seperate but also one in the same. A lease describes an arrangement by which some one typically acquires rights over land- a deed is the instrument the creates the lease and makes it legally enforceable. A deed is different from a contract in the sense that although it creates legally binding obligations it does so under seal (signed sealed witnessed and delivered) - a contract is an exchange of promises. If everyone's lease is under a deed you would need permission to amend each persons individual lease (and therefore deed). If you have been given permission by the landlord I am not sure a lease amendment is necessary - is the load bearing wall in your demised property? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. Is the limited company the legal freeholder? Or is it a management company? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. Are you a director of the limited company? And does the limited company have any articles or association or requirements for unanimous voting? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. Technically a limited company can act through its directors, so if the directors approve your change then they can allow the company to give consent. Would you be able to get any of the dissenting 4 on side? Would you need to access their properties at all? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. The worst case scenario is the intermediate would sue you for breach of the lease, and you would sued by your neighbours for any damage caused to their property. That said I am not sure that would actually work because a) you have the landlords permission and b) the company would need the shareholders consent to commence litigation (or at least the directors consent). If you started the work there is a risk you would be sued, but I am not sure that is a foregone conclusion. Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. Ultimately the landlord has given you consent so you wont be in breach of the lease. Is the consent in writing? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. The wall you are removing, is it just a dry wall? Does it contain any girders in it? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. The restriction say you must main or remove the wall Girders or timbers. I am not quite sure the management company have understood the lease. Why dont you write to them and ask them to confirm that you wont be in breach as long as you do not remove or maim the girders or timbers?
Thank you. I have not seen the lease it seen the lease - often leases do not use punctuation so this could just unclear. Taking a step back - Who is the landlord on your lease? Is this the person that has consented to the works? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. The key thing to do here, is to consider who do you actually need consent from? The answer is your landlord - if you have this consent, then the residents should have no grounds to block the works. If you rate my answer 3-5 stars I would be most grateful. I am happy to continue assisting you further. Kind regards AJ
Hi thank you. I ll mark this thread as containing personal info and have it closed to be certain. Kind regards AJ
