Online CPD Module

Presentation time: 90 minutes

Cross leases are a popular form of subdivision going back to the 1960s where the land and buildings are owned by the occupants as tenants in common and the flats leased. This type of ownership has the potential to lead to significant issues.

This module will take a practical approach in examining the factors that you need to consider when advising your clients whether it is viable to seek freehold title, and, if so, the steps to take in order to achieve this. It will also consider the situations when it may be more appropriate to convert a property to unit title. Case law will be examined, and company lease conversions will also be discussed. This webinar also looks at conversion issues for converting company lease schemes.

Topics covered will include:

  • Background to cross leases
  • Law Commission’s recommendations
  • Advantages of converting cross leases to freehold or unit title
  • The decision to convert
  • When freehold or unit title is the best option
  • Converting to freehold with agreement and with objecting neighbours
  • Converting to unit title
  • Converting company lease schemes.
