Landlord Consent

It’s often surprising for clients to learn that obtaining landlord approval for alterations to leasehold properties can be among the most challenging and time-consuming projects to embark on.

The technical challenges arising from alterations within a confined space are compounded by working in close proximity to multiple neighbours. In addition to this, property managers can often be slow to respond or demand extremely detailed technical submissions that go way beyond the demands of building regulations. 

We have completed many alterations to apartments at some of London’s most prestigious addresses.  We are experienced in obtaining approvals from the most demanding ‘Great Estates’ through to dealing with the amateur directors of smaller blocks.

In every case we seek to minimise the time taken to achieve consent and reduce the expense and delay to you.
