  • Revision of leasehold concept and why it is relevant
    • Structures
    • Enforceability
    • Management Companies
  • Shared Ownership synopsis
    • Some issues to look out for
  • Escalating ground rent and service charge provisions
  • Some traps
    • Deficient Repairing Covenants
    • Description of premises
    • Alienation restrictions
    • Alterations (including retrospective consents)
  • CML requirements for leasehold
  • Practical lease checking tips
  • Lease extensions
  • Buying the freehold
  • Exercising the Right to Manage

Delegates will be asked to bring a copy of an actual lease from the office in order to partially check this during the course of the session.

The course will appeal to all standards of conveyancer as it will improve the understanding of the more important issues and equip the delegate with greater confidence to tackle future leasehold purchases and avoid some traps for the unwary.
