Hi, thanks for your question. My name's XXXXX XXXXX I'm going to help you with it.
This is a standard question from the buyer's solicitor/agent asking what the company charges for the administrative burden of being sent the relevant notices. The burden basically comprises: (i) transferring the share in the freehold by writing up the statutory registers, cancelling the old certificate and issuing the new one; and (ii) for registering the notice of the mortgage (simply acknowledging the letter that the solicitor has sent you with details of the mortgagor and putting it in the company file).
For your information, form MR02 is used where the company acquires property subject to a charge but this is not relevant here.
The lease will usually provide details of the amount of the fee and most modern leases simply refer to a reasonable fee. In those cases, a professional property management company will often have a set fee but most owner managed companies don't charge a fee at all. If you were thinking of doing so, a nominal fee (£30 - £50) is usually fine.
I hope this has answered your question. If so, I would be very grateful if you could leave me positive feedback (OK, Good or Excellent), as it's an important part of our process and permits me to be credited for my time. It will not close our conversation, so if you require any further clarification, don't hesitate to let me know.
Thank you for your answer from which I understand that we simply need to record the change of flat ownership in our company record kit, and that there is no need to pass or register any details of the new flat owner's mortgage at Companies House.
I have submitted a positive feedback and thank you for your help and information.
If you need any additional assistance, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
