    I doubt you'd get quick service, the spam is for a glazing company in Austrailia.

    If you don't "oil" all hinges, catches, sliders, pantographs ( sometimes each side of the window ) and every slider, hinge rivet, thingumabob retainer that the sliders locate into, and those that have flat bars sliding into the window frame, and underneath the window will get progressively stiffer. ( fact )

    Use 3 in 1 spray oil, or if that not available, then WD 40 ( WD 40 wont stick long enough for as is too thin to give long lasting lubrication, but better than nothing )
    Ours have 22 such pivots, sliders, locking tabs, so the more its neglected the more pivots etc there are to stiffen.

    Lubricate everything that moves, sldes, rests into etc. Open and close everything after oiling, and WORK it lose. I got a small 3 in 1 spray, with plastic tube ( if required ) to get into the frame for £ 1 at the Pound store.
    This reply has cost me extremely more that £ 1, so go get some oil. You may have to hang out the window if full width bar sliders are underneath.

    7 pivots and one slider EACH side ( that's 16 just on those )

    The window hinges, window catch and door locks are consumable items replaced by the leaseholder.

    I'm sure you wouldn't if you had paid for working windows and were delivered a dud.

    As for popularity you should know that correspondence with the council is covered by data protection.

    Freeholder not wanting to repair windows

    Some years ago, the council freeholder charged us under capital works bill to put in new windows for the whole block.

    Now, the hinges and the opening mechanism not working on the window and one window is not opening at all. Of course the council are trying to tell us that it's our responsibility to repair it and they are only responsible for repairing the window 'frame'.

    The lease says that the landlord covenants to repair:

    the structure of the managed buildings and in particular but without prejudice to the generality thereof the roofs foundations external and internal walls the window frames (but not the interior faces of each such parts of the external or internal walls as bound the Flat or the rooms therein or glass in the windows)...

    The hinges are what? Surely part of the frame?
