    There is no requirement for notice of charges at all, so, with one year's ground rent, the grand total is £13.65.

    I guess they were hoping the lease had said not less than one guinea, rather than an unqualified one guinea, in which case they could probably have got away with £50.

          When I last checked this thread was deleted, so I'm glad to see it's restored, thank you for amending what I couldn't. Perhaps that's a feature that should be introduced.

          I will be back with an update after sending a letter with my cheque. Thankfully I saved your suggested letter templates so, watch this space...


            Hi all,

            well, still no response to my letter - however my cheque has now been cashed - so I take that as defeat! Thanks all to confirm, I should still expect the standard 'invoice' ahead of my 18/19 ground rent to remind me each year?


              Yes..GR must be demanded in accordance with S166 -

              It not complicated though..and doesnt need extra docs like for example service charge demands do.
              Advice given is based on my experience representing myself as a leaseholder both in the County Court and at Leasehold Valuation Tribunals.

              I do not accept any liability to you in relation to the advice given.

              It is always recommended you seek further advice from a solicitor or legal expert.

              Always read your lease first, it is the legally binding contract between leaseholder and freeholder.

                How crazy would it be to apply to the tribunal as litigant in person to ask them to determine a breach of lease re property disrepair ( the responsibility is on leaseholders, not freeholder) ?

                I think I would be soon, although the application would be made in joint freeholder names

                by charlie8899
                Hello - I hope someone can help. I own a new build flat and have a faulty window that needs replacing. This will be quite costly and requires erecting scaffolding. I was surprised to hear from the building management company that windows are the responsibility of the leaseholder. This doesn't seem right...

                Your windows should be covered by Fensa for 10 years, the window installer is under obligation to get them fixed Once Fensa confirms it is their cost. Oh the miracles that could happen when the installer knows they are responsible for all associated costs good luvk

                We wish to change the RTM Company Secretary from our legacy managing agent to our new managing agent, the legacy agent will not complete the online authentication code until he is paid what he says he is owed. Thoughts on ways around this

                Is he owed money ? Ask him for detailed proof.

                Pay him ?

                by batterseaboy
                Hi, we are a house divided into three flats. Each flat leasheolder also owns 1/3 of the freehold company and serves as a director.

                When the top floor flat was given permission to extend his flat the variation stipulated that he would be solely responsible for any issues with the extension...

                Formally notify him that you believe that he is in breach of the lease and given him a time limit to complete repairs.

                If he doesn't then his sale can be blocked.

                I've recently had Windows replaced and they did the upstairs from inside. If scaffold isn't required it will be a lot cheaper.

                I suspect if you took it to Tribunal they would say you are responsible for the frames.
                It mentions glass separately. And words the doors sort of in parallel.

                In a way it would be cheaper in the long run for you to take this responsibility. Just make sure it applies to all flats not...
