A property manager's hands handing documents to a second pair of hands

Property managers dealing with leasehold properties will often be faced with situations where a leaseholder has asked for permission to carry out work to their flat, or to sub-let the flat to another person, or even for permission to have an animal in the property. They will also have to deal with cases where a leaseholder has not asked for permission but has just gone ahead and done something forbidden by their lease. Knowing when permission is required and the basis for giving or refusing consent is an important part of residential leasehold management.

Course Contents

This is often a hotly disputed area and it has recently led to a Supreme Court decision that all property  managers need to be aware of when dealing with requests.

The workshop will address the following from a legal perspective:

  • When is consent needed?
  • Alterations – structural and non-structural
  • Sub-letting
  • Animals
  • Reasonableness of refusing consent
  • Disability and Equality Act 2010
  • Requests for consent where an RTM company is operating
  • Drawing up a licence

Intended For

Any property manager dealing with residential leasehold property.
