If the land you own as a Freeholder, has communal gardens

Resolved Question:

If the land you own as a Freeholder, has communal gardens shared between Leaseholders for their enjoyment along with rights over paths and driveways, does the Freeholder have rights to alter layout of lawned area and paths within the plot ?

Hi, thanks for your enquiry. The Freeholder will indeed be entitled to alter the layout of any communal areas, as he is the owner and the Leaseholders merely have a right to use the gardens. Provided the Freeholder does not restrict the rights the Leaseholders have under their Lease (ie the right to use and have the benefit of the gardens), then he is free to maintain/improve/alter the communal gardens. He couldn't, however, reduce the size of the gardens. I hope this assists you and sets out the legal position. Kind Regards Al
