Dear Dave A The Freeholder in my case has made a demand for 100 + vat for permission to change my windows. He makes a point of not including the Summary of the leasholders rights etc and says if I want them it will cost an extra 50 +vat. In view of this can I pay the 100 + on an under protest basis and reserve my rights . Then on reciept of permission demand the payment back through small claims if neccessary as he is in breach of the act? As the charge in this case is not regarded as payable.

Persuant to The Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 introduced rights in respect of administration charges. These are defined as 'an amount payable by a tenant as part of or in addition to rent, which is payable directly or indirectly for:

the grant of approvals under the lease or applications for such approvals;
Any administration charge demanded by the landlord must be reasonable in order for the landlord to recover the charge, and must be accompanied by a summary of the leaseholder's rights and obligations in respect of administration charges. If the summary is not included, the charge is not regarded as being payable.
