Jane (my partner) and I may need to rent out our West Drayton 1st floor flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a West Drayton conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have closed and we did not think at the time seek any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in West Drayton do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I have had difficulty in trying to purchase the freehold in West Drayton. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Absolutely. We are happy to put you in touch with a West Drayton conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a West Drayton premises is 164 Nestles Avenue in October 2013. The tribunal agreed with the proposed price of £20,158 for the freehold and determined that that sum is the amount to be paid into court This case related to 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 69 years.

Should local authority permission be necessary to split a single dwelling into two flats in West Drayton? This has taken place to a property next door to my home in West Drayton and was not aware of the conversion until it was finished.

Planning consent is needed for splitting a single dwelling in West Drayton into apartments but probably not for reverting once again to single dwelling-house so, simply put, yes.
