• Lease Defect

    By Guest on 15th Jan 2015

    I am selling a leasehold property with long lease. The original lease state that the block is edged in blue on the plan, but the blue is missing from plan. Also mentions a store plan, however it is not in the lease, I do not have a store with the property. The freeholder does not wish to have a deed of variation done as he feels the wording in the lease is adequate and should take precedence. My solicitor is saying we have to have a deed of variation done. I have now been waiting a month and still waiting for the freeholder to agree. Is this correct?

    I would have to see the lease in order to see the issues in context before I could form an informed opinion however it is generally wise to follow the advice of your solicitor and anyway I suspect it is your buyer's solicitor that is insisting and there is nothing (other than finding a different buyer) that you can do about that.
