Seeking consent for alterations that are made, or intend to be made, to a flat is one of the most common day-to-day issues that every property manager, landlord and leaseholder need to fully understand.

A “Licence to Alter” is the term given to the consent required by a leaseholder who wants to make alterations to a leasehold property.

The Licence to Alter is formal, written consent that sets out the terms and conditions under which the alteration can be carried out. It ensures that no unexpected complications or conflicts will arise as a result of the work. That's why it's so important to get it right.

Robert Denman (JB Leitch) and Julian Davies (Earl Kendrick Associates) will put participants through their paces to ensure they are fully on top of the procedure, understand the common issues and are familiar with relevant lease clauses and statutory considerations for both Landlords and Leaseholders.

Amongst other things, the Boot Camp will cover:
• Why are Licences required?
• Reviewing the Lease – the Alterations Clause
• Reviewing the request for a Licence
• Retrospective Licence requests
• Example scenarios

AIRBNB/Short-Term Letting Breaches in a Leasehold Context
• Many leaseholders of properties in popular towns & cities are seeking to capitalise on the tourist trade by letting their properties to visitors for weekend stays. Whilst many do so without issue, it is not uncommon for incidents to occur leading to allegations of nuisance from neighbouring properties that their buildings should not be used akin to a hotel.
• The majority of leases contain various provisions to restrict such lettings and Landlords & Management Companies need to be aware what remedies they have at their disposal when faced with a disgruntled leaseholder seeking to clamp down on such practices or to protect their asset.
Andrew Bailey (JB Leitch) will discuss recent case law in respect of short-term lettings, what evidential issues and problems his clients have faced based upon present cases and what remedies are available to Landlord & Management Companies.
