Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practicing lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
May I ask if you are concerned that you may not have carried out works that are reasonably required to the property or that any works may not have been carried out in a workmanlike manner or is this not the case please?
I do not understand the question of the solicitor. All the work has been reasonably carried out. I left nothing outstanding.
Thanks. As a freeholder your duties towards the freehold property do not extend beyond the obligations placed on you in the lease. Normally these would be to maintain the structure of the property and to carry out certain redecoration works but leases can vary in this respect.
and all the work has been carried out in a workman manner.
Where you do carry out work you have a duty to procure that such work is carried out in a workmanlike manner and to a reasonable standard. There is no duty to ensure that a guarantee is obtained
The question that has been asked is one of a number of standard questions asked of freeholders when a solicitor makes enquiries.
the issue is that I have no warranties
I do not consider that the question is unusual or merits concern on your part in itself.
O do not have giarantees.
so I ask the question again, do I have an compromises that I do not have such guarantess or warranties
You are not required to obtain warranties for work carried out to the building though of course you may decide to do so if you wish. Providing you procure that any works you do contract are carried out to a workmanlike standard this satisfies your maintenance obligation and I do not consider that your response will compromise you in and of itself
Are you happy with the information I have provided to you above or is there anything above I can clarify for you any further?
