SHP successfully tackles unlawful alterations

 

 

Following our recent investigation into unlawful alterations, two leaseholders have fully cooperated with SHP to convert their properties back to single homes, having been found to have breached their lease by letting rooms out separately.

Having undertaken the required works - including removing locks off of separate bedroom doors – both properties have been inspected by SHP surveyors to confirm that they once again conform to their lease and fire standards.

Two other landlords are facing the possibility of being served with injunctions, with a court date set should they still fail to comply with their lease and fire safety standards.

Nine others have been given 28 days to make the relevant changes to their property to avoid further legal action.

Are you a leaseholder? Remember, as per the terms of your lease, you must:

  • seek consent from SHP before you sublet your property
  • maintain your property as a single household home at all times
  • seek consent to make alterations to your property such as fitting new kitchens and bathrooms, removing internal doors etc. 

SHP will always:

  • refuse permission to convert a leasehold flat into more than a single private residence, i.e. a ‘House in Multiple Occupation’ (HMO)
  • use its legal powers (through the council) to forfeit a lease if a leaseholder has sub-divided their flat and does not restore it to a single home.

New Home Ownership Services Team launched

At an open meeting for all leaseholders hosted by the Sutton Leaseholders Association, SHP launched it’s new Home Ownership Services Team.

Staff from the new team and over 20 leaseholders met on 21st November to discuss priorities for improvement in the months ahead.

The team has been set up to improve the quality of service we provide, bringing together the full range of leasehold related functions, including:

  • All leasehold and freehold related billing and charges
  • Consultation with leaseholders in relation to major works
  • Lease assignments, pre-assignment enquiries, and enforcement of rules and regulations
  • Right to Buy applications and enquiries
  • Garage management and income collection.

There is a new direct dial number for the Home Ownership Services Team that leaseholders can use to call the team direct:  0208 915 2020.

Leaseholders can of course still use the 0208 915 2000 number and there is now an option (3) for callers to reach the Home Ownership Services Team.

Beverley Brigden, Secretary of the Sutton Leaseholders Association said, "I personally found it a positive meeting and left feeling that SHP/SLA are moving forward to an improved service."
