In the recent case of Gilpin/Legg  EWHC 3220 (Ch), it was verified whether beach cottages on land were occupied under a licence or periodic lease and whether, as a result, the landowner was allowed to own the land. If you decide to sell your beach cottage, you must complete the form under the terms of the beach cabin`s license within 28 days of the sale and return it with the corresponding fee. The license agreement is transferred to the new owner. The Strandh-tten licence agreement does not allow you to rent or rent your beach cottage at any time. Our fees and taxes for beach chalets cover the annual rental and transfer fees. We work with the NFBHOA, which represents the view of beach cottage owners in the New Forest. We are in regular contact with beach cottage owners and we need to check you in the short term in case of reported damage to a beach hut. Make sure we have your current address and phone number. The applicant then appealed against the Tribunal to determine the validity of these opinions.
They submitted that the first notice had failed because they were leases and not licences and that the second notice was not valid, since the lessor was not entitled to provide such a notification of termination of the lease. Your beach cottage should be kept in a good state of repair. Ensure that all waste and materials are removed from the site after maintenance so that the area is kept clean for all users. The complainants were the owners of five beach huts in fields owned by a single landowner in Portland Bill, Dorset. Each cottage was built at different times and inhabited by different owners. Each had its own property history and there was not a single form agreement used for all the cabins, so the conditions and documentation differed considerably from each other. There is also no legal position that sets the rules for the ownership of beach chalets nationally or in the surrounding area. We will maintain the access steps and rails, regularly scatter the beaches and empty the garbage cans to keep them properly. Volunteer groups will also make community-based choices on the beaches.
We can help you clean up a community. As noted above, the court explained that the beach cottages were occupied by periodic annual rentals and that the lessor`s second notice effectively terminated them. The fact that the beach huts were found as had no impact. This case is a good reminder of the difference between a lease agreement and a licence and that the form of a tenancy agreement does not matter if the agreement has an exclusive holding for a fixed or periodic term with rent. We are not directly involved in the sale of beach cottages. We manage four sites with beach cottages along the New Forest coast at Calshot, Milford on Sea, Hordle Cliff and Barton on Sea. When the applicants refused to sign new licence agreements, the landowner issued two notices of dismissal to the applicants. The first termination was to terminate their rights under an occupancy licence with a period of three months, and the second, without prejudice to the first, was to terminate their rights under a tenancy agreement with a period of six months.
