    Section 13 Notice Served on Landlord

    Hi a section 13 Notice was served on a Landlord who subsequently served a Counter Notice. It is now nearly 6 months since the counter notice. If the offer to purchase is deemed to have been withdrawn after the 6 months does the Landlord then have to offer Right of First Refusal to the tenants if he wants to put the property onto the open market.

    You are presumably thinking of the legislation that says a collective enfranchisement application cannot be made for 12 months after 'a deemed withdrawal'. I do not believe that this 12 months moratorium exists if it is the freeholder that is offering the disposal of the freehold, so yes, the freeholder does have to offer RFR if he/she is now contemplating an open market disposal.

      I would like to send out a service charge demand to my neighbours. This is the first time they will have been asked to pay anything for about 30 years. This is a property I inherited which was in a bad state of repair. I am freeholder and the other leaseholder. My neighbours are quite set in their ways...

      The ground rent demand must be a separate document, because there is a very specific format for it, without which the demand is void.

      Each ground rent year must be demanded separately, as each demand will contain a different date on which the payment was due according to the lease.

      I would issue separate demand for annual ground rent because the payment goes to a bank account under freeholder's name. The demand will show the name of freeholder and the address for serving legal notices.

      The service charge payment should go to separate bank account for holding service...

      Seems OK. .whether you can ask for work started but not completed depends on the wording of the leases (s) and whether or not you have incurred an actual costs..be aware that some older leases don't contain any provision for collecting monies in advance and that you must pay for everything and be reimbursed...

      Hi

      Can a freeholder insist that a Leaseholder contacts the Managing Agent only with matters relating to the property?. We have a Leaseholder who insists on copying us into all communications, (via our personal email addresses and not the freeholder email address) and if the Managing...

      Good question. Ultimately the LH relationship is with you and I don't think there is anything you can do to prevent him contacting you.

      I had trouble parsing the question. I wasn't sure if only referred to the managing agent, or only referred to the type of problem.

      In the former case, in this forum, AST tenants are often advised to bypass the letting agent, so I don't see why that should not also be true for the long...

      Hi,

      It would appear you want the rewards without the hassle, you have to ask yourself is your MA responding to reasonable requests and responding to leaseholders expecting to receive those replies in a timely manner, which as you already know is not correct or they wouldn't be contacting...

    • Have requested shareholder meeting and it is being continually declined
      Milly26
      Good evening All,

      I have tried to call a shareholder meeting with two directors since June. I am not a director and there are only three of us.
      The articles require a quorum of two so they are frustrating the meeting and quorum by not holding the meeting/attending.
      I thought...
