A summary of some of the restrictions imposed by the Lease. This is all pretty standard stuff for most upmarket apartments.
Businesses may not be run from Succombs Place.
- The terms of the lease prohibits sub-letting (see * below). So, for example, this prevents flat sharing or a parent renting an apartment on behalf of their offspring. Our insurance company has also placed some additional restrictions regarding tenants.
- Commercial vehicles, caravans, mobile homes and motorcycles may not be parked on the estate outside working hours. However, trade vehicles may park during the working day when carrying out work on an apartment, building or grounds.
- Motorcycles parked in garages don't upset anyone.
- Before carrying out any refurbishment or alteration (more complicated than internal decoration) to an apartment, seek advice and approval from Sidevine Ltd. Their collective experience and knowledge could save you a lot of money.
- Noise. As no flat has an adjoining wall with another flat, floorings have to be close carpeted and there is a slab of concrete about 25 cm thick between flats, these flats are pretty good for noise insulation.
- Ball games or similar activities are not allowed within the estate. A local very large park is within 10 minutes walk.
- Pets are limited to one cat per flat. Dogs are not permitted.
- Clothing or laundry cannot be hung on your balconies or terraces.
- Barbecues are not allowed anywhere on the estate. This will probably come as a great relief to your visitors.The aerodynamics of the flats seems to have been specifically designed to conduct the smoke from the barbecue in through your neighbour's windows.
- Do nothing which changes the external appearance of your flat. One person is good taste is another persons…! This includes the erection of aerials or antenna.
- The landings are public areas and not available for the storage of private belongings.
* The correct legal terminology is sub-sub-letting as the apartments are leasehold.
