If we have been appointed to collect and organise your ground rent on behalf of your landlord, you should also pass on our contact details to your solicitor.

We can only discuss the freehold, subletting, alteration or pet consent details with the legal owner of a property. If you have such questions before you buy a property and the current owner cannot answer them, then please ask them to contact us.

Yes. Normally, a leaseholder needs their landlord’s written approval, or consent, before making any alterations. This is not only to make sure that any alterations do not adversely affect the structure or insurability of the building but is also for the benefit of other residents within the building. You can apply for consent to make alterations through the HomeGround portal.
