Lease Plans

Consult Construct are a leading surveying company dealing with all facets of building and construction.  A large part of today’s property business dealings concern the Leasing of buildings, land etc.   A lease is an agreement between a freeholder and a lessee (leaseholder). As well as the written agreement, a Lease generally needs a Land Registry Compliant Plan of the property (Lease Plan).  This will identify the total perimeter of the leased area together with any areas shared on the premises in a communal fashion.

Land Registry check out all the plans admitted to them and when satisfied that all is correct, the plans are registered.  Current requirements state that plans labelled very clearly, and critically, they must be drawn to an approved metric scale, with this indicated in a clear manner on context location section of the map.  Another important requirement is that orientation has to be identified with inclusion of the scale bar. All relevant floors together with their access routes must be clearly marked. The property has to be easily identifiable using suitable colouring, hatching and edging matching the terms of the lease.

Consult Construct are able to take existing paper plans and convert over to digital formats and will match the specifications of many of our plans. These plans are re-created in a CAD as absolute consistency and neatness are paramount.  These points will help avoid need for site visits, which in turn reduces the fee.
