As of 13th May the Leasehold Reform (Amendment) Act is now in force, meaning that a duly authorised person, such as a solicitor or someone with power of attorney can now sign any required notice on behalf of an owner.

This will make life a lot easier, as before this Act, any owner wishing to extend their lease or buy the freehold with a neighbour for example, was required to physically sign the required legal notices themselves.
