  • Reply to Insulation - necessity or improvement?
    by Gordon999
    The average service charge bill for leaseholders in E & W is around £1800 p.a which you and 2 other leaseholders are not paying ( or you have saved ) and so your building of 2 converted houses is deteriorating over the last 9 tears.
    You should ask the freeholder or apply to FTT to appoint...

  • Insulation - necessity or improvement?
    by bethy
    We are L/H on a top floor flat. Roof is responsibility of F/H to maintain through service charge.

    A loft hatch was installed last year to give access to the roof space for roof repairs. This has shown that there is no insulation whatsoever in the roof space - the property was converted...

    by November26
    Hi

    I have been trawling the internet for updates to challenges around 'notice of underletting fees' and I'm not sure of the current position. My landlord is still playing ignorant and deeming their extortionate bi-annual amount 'reasonable'. Are there county court judgements or upper tribunal...

    by Gordon999
    JKO's case was one of a "group of 4 cases" judged by upper tribunal at £40 payable. But I am sure your lease will not state it is payable every 6 months .

    For Group action info, you should visit the LKP website ( leasehold knowledge partnership ) and join Katie Kendricks...

  • Reply to Lease variation
    by Lawcruncher
    Whilst "resident warden" is clear, I am not sure that in the context of sheltered accommodation "residential warden" can be taken to mean something other than a resident warden. "Residential" is not a word I would use to describe a person. If the warden has until recently...

    by bazann
    Hi,
    My elderly mother [99 years+] owns a flat in a residential block under a 125 year Lease dated 24th May 1989. The Lessor is a housing association. My mother purchased the flat in early 2011 with the benefit of said Lease.
    There is the usual monthly service charge which includes e.g. maintenance...

    It's a bit of a mess really, and a long story... They owned the whole building and ran a restaurant downstairs. Then converted upstairs into two flats to rent out. Then got into money problems and sold leaseholds to the flats. Service charges are split between restaurant and two flats. It's a terrace...

    by Macromia
    If there has never been any loft insulation, putting it in now would technically be an improvement, so the I suspect that the freeholder would be under no obligation to arrange for insulation to be installed.

    If the building was converted into flats "just over ten years ago",...

    This information is crucial.

    If your lease states that underletting is allowed but you need to pay "notice to underlet" fees of £xxx biannually, and these fees are to be increased in line with inflation, there is unlikely to be any legal argument that helps you.
