The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

Contact the vendors directly and make the point that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to use your own,trusted Bayswater conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthe ones that will earn the estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds demanded by head office.
I am purchasing a ground floor flat in Bayswater. Conveyancing solicitor has been waiting for, from the owner, building insurance paperwork. This morning I was advised that the seller needs to forward the insurance paperwork for the flat above also. Why does my solicitor want to check the insurance for the other flat? Is it strictly necessary? We have been in hold for the last fortnight…
It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in Bayswater to find Conveyancing in Bayswater in a minority of cases reveals that the lease provides for the tenant's to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the whole building - which is definitely preferable.

Insuring a ground floor apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be rebuilt as a result of lack of insurance.
