In conversation with Bishop & Sewell:
Leasehold Question Time – Missing Landlords

Buying your freehold or extending your lease is one thing - but what if your landlord is missing?

Join Mark Chick and Chris Macartney, to discuss a range of issues that arise, in practice, when owners of flats and leasehold houses are faced with an absent landlord.

In this FREE one-hour session, Mark and Chris will outline key points and leaseholders will be offered the chance to ask questions on a range of missing landlord issues including:

• Correcting falling lease length
• Ground rents and re-mortgaging
• Lease extensions and freehold acquisitions
• Alterations or improvements that may be required under their lease
