  • A minority of Cradley Heath leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this applies to your lease, you should notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are financially capable of paying the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter.

If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s permission? In particular have you installed wooden flooring?
