We are leaseholders and have a share of the freehold in a block of 50 flats. The property manager for the block charges £258 each time we remortgage – as a consent to remortgage. This case found that a proportionate charge was £40+VAT: Solitaire Limited v Cherry Lillian Norton  UKUT 1 (LC). http://landschamber.decisions.tribunals.gov.uk//Aspx/view.aspx?id=823. Could you advise if we can challenge this £258 fee? Also, if we let the flat we are charged a consent-to-let fee of a similar amount each time there is a new tenant. Any advice much appreciated.
