Leaseholders must obtain a Licence to Alter before modifying the landlords property, depending on the proposed works. This allows freeholders to protect themselves against potential losses and ensure the works won’t adversely affect other residents in the building.
In most cases, freeholders should consent to the proposed alterations provided the leaseholder agrees to reasonable terms. Obtaining a Licence to Alter can often be a drawn-out and complicated process, but you can trust our chartered surveyors to make it as straightforward as possible.
We can act for either tenants or landlords in the respect.
Examples of works that require a Licence to Alter:
We can review the lease terms and covenants relating to the Licence to Alter as well as act as the mediator between you and your tenants. We can also survey your building before work commences and ensure alterations are completed according to the Licence to Alter terms.
Building Pathology is the study of building defects, building decay and building performance in order to develop suitable remedial and management solutions. The discipline looks at the interrelationships between the physical building, its use, occupation and environment to gain valuable insights into why buildings fail.
Our remedial property surveying and consultancy service uses a holistic, professional approach to Building Pathology to effectively describe the investigation, diagnosis and reporting of building failure. This will then form the basis for developing sustainable solutions to deal with building defects and deterioration
Schedules of Condition are required when it is necessary to record details of the present condition of the property.
