I have been asked to look at this for you.
It depends what the covenants are and each of the individual flat owners can agree to change the covenants on their own property provided the changes do not affect anybody else.
However it is in total control of the leaseholder, nothing to do with the committee. The majority vote doesn’t matter.
If you can tell me what kind of changes you are looking at, I can probably expand my answer for you.
Thank you. I’m afraid this is not a free service but it depends whether you have signed up for a subscription or free trial. You would need to speak to customer services about which plan you are on.
With regard to your question, in a nutshell, no, unless each individual leaseholder consents then the covenants cannot be changed. Each individual leaseholder can consent to the changes but if one out of the 16 refuses, then 15 will change if they all agree but the 1 will stay the same. Nothing can be imposed upon leaseholder unless that leaseholder agrees.
