Landlords Consent - (License for Alterations)

Landlords Consent – (License for Alterations)

Under the terms of most leases it is necessary for leaseholders to obtain Landlords Consent when undertaking certain works, in the form of a Licence for Alterations.  The freeholder/freehold company is responsible for protecting the structural integrity of a building if a leaseholder is proposing any of the following works, depending on what the lease says:

•    If the proposed works will change the external appearance of the building (changing the style or materials of any windows/doors, installing   new windows etc)
•    Removing or opening up any external, internal or partition wall
•    Extending the property
•    Adding or changing the location of a kitchen or bathroom
•    Changing the internal layout of a flat and/or creating an additional habitable room
•    Any modifications to a communal service, such as removing or adding a radiator connected to a communal heating system
•    Laying hard floor coverings

Under such circumstances the advice and input from an experienced surveyor is essential in drafting the terms of a licence.
