    Chasing letter to repair

    What experience and successes have you had with sending a chasing letter to repair?

    What is the situation? Are you a leaseholder trying to get a freeholder (or their managing agent) to fulfill their repair obligations?

    In my experience, as a residential leaseholder, it can be very difficult to get freeholders to do anything other than in their own time.
    Commercial leaseholders in my block seem to get a slightly quicker reaction, probably because the freeholder actually earns money off them, but they still don't get maintenance done as fast, or efficiently, as they would like.

    Evidence that you have written to chase repairs can potentially come in useful though if you end up going to a tribunal or court over anything where repairs (or the lack of them) might be relevant - so obtain proof of posting from a Post Office and keep a copy of the letter.
