    Bill left over from RTM

    Good afternoon all,

    I must thank you all for the previous advice with our RTM. To be honest, so far, it has not been too stressful.

    Now just a quick question please.

    6 months after RTM I have had a fairly large 'professional fee' from a company that my managing agent did not settle before handover. It is not a utility bill.

    Now my first reaction is to just pay it but my question is who is actually liable?

    Many thanks again.

    You should check first of all that the sum demanded is a valid charge and that it is payable eg did the managing agent instruct services to be provided by the Company and was the amount authorised? You should then check whether or not you are permitted to use the service charge monies to pay the bill eg is it for a service which may be considered as a service charge under the terms of the lease? Once you are satisfied that the bill was authorised and it is payable and you are authorised to use service charge monies, then you are able to pay the bill.

      Does anyone know what action can be taken if the RTM company is not performing and refusing communication.

      Long story short, of the 6 apartments Tenant A owns 2 properties and refusing to pay (for no other reason than he doesnt want to). Tenants B & C will not pay because Tenant A is...

      The last resort is that you apply to the FTT to appoint a manager.

      You first have to write down what is wrong and set realistic timescales for fixing it.

      leaseholder64 Tenant B is aware he can only sell at auction due to lack of insurance and has pointed out his annoyance that he will lose up to £50,000. I politely informed him it would be in his interest to start paying the service charge to get the building insured (Tenant D will pay and I think Tenant...

      The mortgagees should be on the public record, at the Land Registry, for £3 a lease.

      I would suggest you sit down one evening and type a letter out.
      Detail the lack of insurance, the lack of willingness to maintain the building. List the problems with doing so - value of flats greatly diminished - likely all parties (including yourself) in breach of mortgage terms - the RTM company...

      They won't be a be able to sell except as a distressed property without the insurance, and a competent conveyancer would probably also warn people off based on the arrears. Questions about all of these normally get asked by the buyer's solicitors.

      Hi, I don't have any sage advice to offer just some sympathy, I thought the directors in my building were bad but yours is on another level. I would agree that insurance is the main concern and probably a requirement for any mortgage, as the bricks and mortar must surely be the collateral.

      If the company is dissolved, the liquidators will try to sell the land. Failing that, it will eventually revert to the Crown, or the Duchy of Lancaster, etc., who will not maintain it, although an attempt will be made to sell it to some of the residents.

      I'm totally confused by your description...

      on a neighbouring development the council adopted the amenity land but did not in our case because the builders did not want to pay the council to adopt it.So it was sold on to a management company from whom we ,miraculously, were able to buy it for £5k.At that time, 2000 our council tax was £150pa...
