  • Can a RMC refuse a wayleave signed by the freeholder?

    I live in a leasehold flat (owned). The estate is of 40 flats.
    The only ISP available is BT (Sky, Talk Talk etc).
    I have got Hyperoptic on board and they are looking to service the buildings.
    They have contacted the freeholder who is wiling to sign a wayleave for a fee (supposedly this is normal).
    Hyperoptic are worried that if they pay for the wayleave, does the RTM have the right to refuse access for it to be installed?
    I have tried getting the RTM on board with this but they are wanting me to jump through so many hoops that its impossible.

    Sorry if this has been dealt with before but I searched "wayleave" and nothing came up.

    Hopefully someone will have the right information.

    Thank you for your response.

    What can I do though if the Director is not being helpful?

    I have done the leg work with Hyperoptic, getting them on board and all they need is the yes from the director.

    I've even posted the leaflets through the doors of all the flats and they have enough interest to install there services.

    I've even agreed that if there is a fee for the installation on the site which I can personally not cover then it wont be installed. Although Hyperoptic have said it would be a free of charge install.

    If your site is managed by a RTM, any fees except "ground rent" payable to freeholder becomes due to the RTM . The freeholder is only responsible for collecting ground rent and dealing with proceedings for forfeiture.

    The RTM is responsible for managing the site and approving the services such as electricity supply for communal areas , communal satellite TV dish, broadband etc . The RTM director ( acts for the leaseholders ) should be helping leaseholders ( you).

    Thank you for the response.

    It's more the RMC Director not being helpful with allowing Hyperoptic to install there services.

    They have put it as a low priority.

    I am in contact with Hyperoptic and Freeholder.

    Hyperoptic are able to get a wayleave signed by the freeholder at a cost (unknown).

    But is the RMC Director in a position to refuse the wayleave if signed by the freeholder?

    The difference between RTM and RMC is important here.

    One of the reasons people go for RTMs is to stop the freeholder causing difficulties when people want licences.

    You seem to be trying to bypass that mechanism. The correct process is that you ask the RTM and they then inform the freeholder, who must respond within time limits or accept the RTM's response.

    Not sure if correct title but looking for someone to manage finances and lease building responsibilities. Victorian 12 dwellings building in Cumbris.
    What would an average monthly charge per dwelling be ? Would it be usual to charge for extras such as getting quoted for work ?
    Any advice...

    Despite hours of internet search I have not been able to find a property manager, managing agent ( not sure of difference ) in South Cumbria. Can anyone recommend someone or even just know of one ? I'm not being lazy just increasingly frustrated by not finding any possibility. Please help.

  • Periodic tenancy and transfer fees

    We are considering renting out a property and creating a periodic tenancy rather than AST from the start. However, we are concerned that we will need to pay the freeholder £25 per month transfer fee (per lease) required when we underlet as the tenancy will, in effect, be renewed on a monthly basis....

    We had a surveyor in last year in April 2018 which said that the outside render was now porous and needed to be repaired as a matter of urgency and should be a priority. At a meeting they voted to wait for a year until people had saved up the money and also they needed to have an asbestos test done....

    No there is no allowance for a reserve fund. However I have always put away a few 100 a month just in case of any disaster. The other leasses are all high earners, they will not have a problem rustling up the money. If they had got on with it in 2011 it would have been a lot cheaper, but they didnt....

    Yes I have had the flat for 30 years, it it was in 2011 that the problems of penetrating damp became known, but the people in charge at the time chose to ignore it. I even got in my own surveyor but they were immune to what he said. Finally I insisted on a surveyor checking the whole building and he...
