    Leasehold breach - wooden flooring 9th Nov 18 at 1:38 PM
    Hi all - would appreciate some advice. I'm in the process of buying a leasehold flat. The lease clearly states that all flooring should be in carpet. However the property has wooden flooring in the living room and hallways. My solicitor has asked the vendor for evidence of consent from the landlord but I suspect he did this without permission. If this is the case, what options do I have moving forward?

    Ok that's reassuring! So do you think there's a chance that my lender will still approve the mortgage even if the seller doesn't have evidence of consent for installing wooden flooring?

    It's not a big deal - and wearing slippers or putting down some nice rugs might be enough to stifle the noise, if there is any. Why not knock on the door of the flat below and ask them if it causes a problem?
