Located in the heart of Westminster, London SW1, close to the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Green overlooks St. Johns Gardens ( pictured ) to the west side and has at ground floor level self-contained units comprising a medical centre, dentist and beautician/hair salon.

The developer transferred the freehold to the lessees of the apartments on 26 January 2010, having sold all the units .

Apartments are owned on the basis of 999 years leases running from January 2004.

Subletting by leaseholders is strictly on the basis of six month minimum periods and occupation by one family only (see specimen lease).

The freehold is owned by Westminster Green Management Company Limited, the Board of which is elected by apartment owners (each apartment constitutes one member) and directors must stand for re-election by rotation as per the Articles of Association of the company.

The Company has set in place a long term Planned Maintenance Program for the maintenance of the building to a high standard  and this is fully budgeted for within the Service Charge paid by each apartment.

The company has also appointed solicitors to deal with all Company legal matters and our solicitor is Caroline Wild at Blake Morgan LLP, Watchmaker Court, 33 St. John's Lane, London, EC1M 4DB www.blakemorgan.co.uk
