I have been trying to assign my lease for more than 2 years now. Simarc have delayed the progress at every opportunity by asking for more money, it is now running into several thousands. It looks like their latest trick is to charge VAT on their published fees although their fee schedule advises that the fees are inclusive of VAT. Be warned!
I'll never buy another leasehold property again. Freehold everytime!
