  • Landlord selling freehold
    paysheet
    Our landlord (our builder) is selling the freehold for our flats and has given us the first refusal. The offer is good. However there have been issues with our landlord. Our estate is still not complete. The property management company they appointed have been totally incompetent and mismanaged our...

    There may be complexities you need to resolve but f you have the chance to buy the freehold and the deal is reasonable, give it serious consideration. I suggest you contact LEASE for advice and/or consult a solicitor. Many solicitors will provide some insight before formalizing arrangements....

    In post #1, OP said : "We are working with the landlord and management company to sort things but "progress is slow" and we are thinking about court tribunal action."

    Progress must be slow if the 1st year accounts are outstanding for more than 2 years, compared...

    The accounts should be produced up to 6 months after the end not from 6 months. Form 6 months means that there can be charges that are not recoverable from the leaseholders because the leaseholders were not informed within 18 months of them being incurred.

    A copy of the annual service charge account ( summary of 12 months service charge collected and maintenance expenditure for your block ) should be produced for each year and made available to leaseholders, from 6 months from the end of each year.

    For a new building, the maintenance...

    Does your lease mention the property management company, and if so, is this in connection to the block, the estate, or both?
    Do you pay service charges towards the management of the estate in addition to costs for the management of the block?

    If you buy the freehold (presumably as...

    Leases cannot be changed unilaterally except when they are both defective and the First Tier Tribunal agrees that the change is necessary to remedy the defect. Assigning the freehold makes no difference to this.

  • Liability for costs?
    Harwood
    I live in a block of four flats, 2 ground floor, 2 first floor.
    The other 3 flats share a communal hallway/stairs, we have a private entrance ( a maisonette i believe - why do i feel all Hyacinth Bouquet!)

    Anyway, within my lease i have no covenant giving me any kind of responsibility...

    This is true, but as Harwood says,
    "in doing so they inadvertently cut out the repairing covenant - and a few others
    pets, washing lines etc".

    The etc means many more Standard covenants have been omitted.

    You can bet a typographical error HAS occurred
