Hi,

Thank you for your query. What kind of consent is required?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
that we are providing cover for the lack of consent. see below pls the drafted letter that i have been asked to sign ....................I am writing to you on behalf of the 31 Marquis Road Limited Company as the acting secretary and company representative.
Given the directors of this company share freehold of this property there is no acting Landlord at this time. As no such Landlord is present, as requested I am writing to provide cover for the lack of consent relating to the highlighted items below:
1. Hard flooring being present in the flat
2. The removal of a wall dividing the kitchen and lounge.

Hi,

What they are asking of is fairly basic. They are asking for permission for any alterations, which would have been a requirement under the lease.

They are not asking you to confirm whether the works were carried out correctly, just that they have permission.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
