Hi, do you want to take any action against the upstairs owner concerning the porch? Kind Regards Al
I see the previous expert has opted out. I will try to help you. If there was a previous breach I would mention the previous breach but say that it’s now been rectified.
With regard to other breaches, it doesn’t matter whether they are a breach or not, because if you are the freeholder, you are allowed to grant consent for things which are also in breach.
What you would say therefore is that there is a porch she’s in breach of the terms of the lease you confirm that do not intend to take any enforcement proceedings and that if the seller wishes to provide a draft licence for alterations, be prepared to sign it if they will agree to pay your reasonable fee which my suggestion would be hundred and £50 plus VAT if you are VAT registered.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
It’s an important part of the process by which experts get paid.
We can still exchange emails.
