    It is the seller who is seeking the consent therefore his solicitor should make the application, whether that be to the landlord directly or via the management company as a third party. As to who pays the fees, the convention is that the seller should pay but there is no law which obliges him to and if he refuses then in order to progress the transaction the buyer may have to bite the bullet and bear the cost.
