I am a new leasehold landlord on the point of sub-letting my flat. I will be charged £120 inc VAT by the management company of the freeholder to "check the lease conditions".
The flat had been sub-let by the previous landlord and therefore the lease conditions will be well known, unchanged, recently reviewed because of my purchase process and in their possession.
So why am I being charged for this 'check' and in particular why am I being charged so much?
Is this common to the industry?
