London Lease Plans For Property

In this new blog, I’ll tell you the latest about London Lease Plans for Property.

Latest News

Phew… What a couple of years.  Covid-19 has been a challenge for Lease Plans Online, but we have managed to keep our heads above water and continue to provide Lease Plans in and around London. More and more work has been remote, with clients providing plans that I work from.  This has worked really well, and kept site visits down to a minimum.  Its amazing how many people already have existing floor plans of their property.  Clients often have either estate agent plans or architect plans, which when combined with old lease documents, Google maps, photographs and sketches from the owner, can be used to create a new, accurate, Land Registry Compliant Lease Plan for the property!

Remote Working

Working remotely also helps widen our coverage area, so its not just London property Lease plans that we can now do. If plans are provided, we can take on national property projects and its much cheaper for clients this way. Give us a call on 07795 565853 to discuss your project and whether site visits can be avoided, keeping costs down.

I miss going out and about quite so much though! I’m looking forward to a busy 2023 with lots more interesting properties to visit and lease plans to draw up.  At Lease Plans Online, we always wear appropriate PPE and use hand sanitiser before, during and after visits. We keep London covered for Lease Plans for Property!

LATEST NEWS from Lease Plans Online

Latest news from the chalk face is that things are a bit weird out there.  The cost of living crisis is definitely having an impact on the way people are behaving.  Property developers are struggling with the huge spike in material costs and Brexit means workers are in short supply.  Property prices are still rising, though word is they will level off/drop a little in the coming two years due to the increase in mortgage rates.  BUT… people still have to move, kids are born, jobs become remote and space gets tight.

Commercial Property News:

Many commercial premises which emptied during the pandemic, are bouncing back, with new businesses moving in.  I’m doing more commercial property lease plans than I have for a while including plans for shops, offices, food outlets and services, with many new and growing businesses taking up new leased spaces. So far this week I have done lease plans for a pharmacy, a property maintenance company, an estate agent, a fish and chip shop and a recruitment firm.

Residential News:

On the residential side, people seem to be trying to maximise what they already own –  people are refinancing with mortgages (meaning they need to get lease plans in order), splitting larger properties into smaller units, needing land registry compliant lease plans for each flat, they’re also extending and converting lofts – all meaning they need updated leaseplan drawings.  I’m also seeing a trend for transfer plans for transfer deeds where people are selling off parts of their garden.

New Developments:

An areas I think will grow in the next few years is HMOs.  The squeeze on people’s pockets means people will need more shared housing and local authorities are cracking down on dodgy landlords so they will be needing HMO plans to go along with their licences.

Going Green:

In other news, in order to try to get as green as possible, I’ve committed to doing at least 50% of my work via public transport. Yesterday, I had a lovely relaxing trip to Westcliffe on Sea to do a lease plan for a brand new lease.  I travelled via London Overground and the C2C Mainline service from Barking to Westcliffe.  It was so peaceful spending a couple of hours on a train as opposed to getting stuck in traffic. Managed to sneak in a crossword and read a book. Bliss.


Things are changing, but not slowing down.  They’re just different. Being a small business, I can flex with the changing financial landscape and stay responsive to the market’s needs. That’s all for now folks. Check back soon for more news! Happy Lease Planning.


Long time no write

Its been a long time since I updated my lease plan blog – sign of a good year I think.  Things have been busy in a good way.  Just right for juggling my job as lease planner, mum and artist in my spare time.

I’ve had some really exciting jobs over the last year – including a lease plan of a shop in Maida Vale where I almost got stuck in the very dark, very unpleasant basement.  Managed to haul myself out of a small hatch just before my make-shift steps crumpled beneath me!  I’ve been in some spooky empty flats to do residential lease plans (weird noises and shadows and all), plus some tenanted properties whose sights, smells and sounds were quite an eye-opener.  Its funny – when I tell people what I do, they often glaze over a little, but it is genuinely quite an exciting job as you never know what you’re going to find behind the next door.  Couple that with flexible hours, being my own boss and providing a much valued service, I couldn’t ask for much more!

Here’s a little picture of an old range I managed to photograph down in the very dark shop basement.  I think the whole basement floor used to be the kitchens for what was once, a very grand house. (The whole basement was pitch black so this is with my phone flash).

Plans for Solicitors

I have been providing excellent plans for solicitors for years.  The solicitors who use me regularly often comment on how clear the plans are.  So far, none of me plans have been rejected by the Land Registry and I’m very proud of this 5* service record.


I take a flexible approach to providing plans to solicitors and am very happy to customise Land Registry Plans to specific requirements.  I will consult lease documents if required to make sure lease plans correspond exactly.  I provide Land Registry Compliant Deed of Variation Plans, Plans for Transfers, Lease Plans for Residential and Commercial purposes and more.


I produce plans with great care, drawing on more than 10 years of experience in the industry. I am used to dealing with complex access, rights of way, easements and boundary issues.  So far I have a 100% acceptance record with HM Land Registry. My regular Solicitor clients value the trouble-free nature of the plans I produce.


When dealing with property, I know that time is of the essence, and that often it can be quite late in the day that plan issues come up.  Because of this, I do my very best to provide a fast and efficient service.  Often I can book a site visit the next day, and email plans to you within 24-48 hours.


My prices are already extremely competitive, and to back this up I offer a price match promise. I am not yet VAT registered, saving your clients’ money.


Please call on 07795565853 or to discuss your client’s requirements.


Deed of Variation Plan

What is a Deed of Variation Plan?

In cases where there has been a change to the physical layout of a leasehold flat, or where the demise has been extended, a deed of variation may be needed.  The Deed of Variation will include an amended Land Registry Compliant plan which will be registered at the Land Registry.  It is advisable to obtain a deed of variation if carrying out changes to a leasehold property as you may experience difficulties at the point you decide to sell the leasehold.

Some common reasons to need a Deed of Variation are where a lease plan doesn’t accurately reflect the demise of a leasehold, where there has been an extension to the boundary of the building, or where a flat has extended into a loft space.

In the example below, the original plan that went along with the Lease was not correctly to scale, had no north point, no floor levels and did not show that the loft was part of the demise of the First Floor Flat.  Therefore a deed of variation plan was needed.  We created a Land Registry Compliant plan which showed the flat and the extended demise (the loft).  The plan was scaled at 1:100, with a north point, with a location plan at 1:1250, with the demise and common areas shown in colours which corresponded to the lease document.

Land Registry Plans

What is a Land Registry Plan?

In simple terms, a Land Registry Plan is any plan drawn to the specification by the Land Registry.  This can include deed plans to accompany any kind of deed.  In the sphere of conveyancing, land transfers and variations, it is often necessary to describe a piece of land and its boundaries.  Whilst it is possible to do this with words, the most accurate and clear way to do this is with a visual plan.  Generally a 1:1250 plan is sufficient for this purpose, however in some cases it may be beneficial to have a larger plan to show intricate details (1:200 for example).

Most deed plans will use Ordnance Survey information as a starting point, then use accurate measurements taken at the site to ensure the boundaries which need showing, are in the correct place.
