3 Hours

A “Licence to Alter” is the term given to the consent required by a leaseholder who wants to make alterations to a leasehold property. The Licence to Alter is a written consent of binding effect that sets out the terms and conditions under which the alteration can be carried out. It ensures that both Landlord and Leaseholder know what to expect when alterations are carried out and will prevent unnecessary legal proceedings after the event. That's why it's so important to get it right.


Following on from a successful session in the spring Join Christopher Last (Dean Wilson LLP) and Zoe Walheim (Earl Kendrick) for part 2 who will put participants through their paces to ensure they are fully on top of the procedure, understand the common issues and are familiar with relevant lease clauses and statutory considerations for both Landlords and Leaseholders.
