    Sorry for lack of response but I have had health issues and so that has taken up a lot of my time getting that sorted out. I came out of hospital on Wednesday but no, the problem is not resolved. However we have handed the running of the house over to an Agent, but so far have not heard a thing. I will get going tomorrow and ring the Agent to ask what is happening. Leasehold is wonderful there is no doubt about that.

      The result of my phone call to the Lease was that they do indeed owe me the money for the necessary work to make my flat water proof as they were not getting on with the work.

        Sorry to hear about your health issues and hope all is going as well as possible. I am sure all on the forum wish you well.

          Another problem which has now arisen is that the ex Secretary that we had to get rid of is harassing my tenant, by just walking into the flat if the door is open and also accosting her when she is outside and also going around to the front window and banging on it to get her attention. He is having major work done on his flat which is next door to my own. I wonder whether I should start another thread for this. I have mentioned it above, that we have been in depute for a long time

              I would say that you definitely need to take some sort of action regarding this, although what action you take perhaps needs to be suggested by someone who has at least some sort of qualification to give the advice.

              Perhaps a letter to the 'ex secretary' would be a start, pointing out that their behaviour is inappropriate and that legal action may be taken if it continues (e.g. entering someone else flat, even if the door is open, is clearly inappropriate and would be trespass, unless I am very mistaken).

                I agree with Macromania. To me it seems to be almost criminal. However, as said, you need someone with some with some qualification to advise. Perhaps a solicitor offering free initial advice ?
                I think you are right to consider a new thread. This has, quite rightly, become a long thread and that would separate issues.

                  Yes I will call the citizens advice tomorrow in the UK and ask them what they think. A letter is out as he will see it is from me and send it back, so an email and get someone to post a letter from me from the UK. I will threaten legal action. However I will start a new thread as we are going off track. Thank you very much for all your advice.

                    I will start a new thread and thank you for your advice. Thankfully my tenant has a head on her shoulders and is not easily intimidated.

                    • Upstairs neighbour using my flat roof for informal roof terrace
                      flatA
                      When I bought my flat some years ago (terraced house divided into 3 flats, leasehold owners of the 3 flats own the freehold), upstairs neighbour had an informal roof terrace on a flat roof that is part of my lease. This does not cause us any problems and I was understanding as had moved from a flat...

                      Hi,

                      Thanks in advance for your time. Im a long leaseholder living in london, and have been living in the same flat for 8 years now. The building is an old victorian conversion with four flats in the building and a basement flat with a garden.

                      We have recently had new short-hold...

                      What would you say if there was a baby crying all night and disturbing your sleep? Would you insist on the baby being removed?

                      The freeholder is likely to insist on using its own solicitor,

                      You would have no control over the case, the solicitor could advise the freeholder to discontinue the claim or settle the claim whereby each party bears its own costs ie you would not recover any of your costs....

                      Whether or not the freeholder can ask you to pay for the costs depends on the wording of your lease.

                      Neither you nor your solicitor nor the freeholder for that matter can insist on the "full removal of the nuisance animal"....

                      As I said, clauses allowing costs to be recovered from the leaseholder in breach are controversial, and they will need advice from the solicitor as to how much of the costs are going to be recoverable....

                      Im getting my GP report this week to help with the case that this dog is causing me severe stress... Not sure how much weight that will carry with a solicitor when determining nuisance?

                      Also seeing a psychologist for a talking session to deal with it, as Im still hearing barking in my dreams...

                      My position now is that Im searching for solicitors for this. My worry is the managing agent / freeholder will want to use their own solicitor.

                      Its interesting - I asked them yesterday whether, if their solicitors opinion is that it is nuisance, if theyll recover the full costs from the...

                    • Over occupation?
                      jbolo
                      Landlord above me has let a one bed to a couple. They moved in with a kid a a third relative sleeps in living room. According to the law based on rooms 2 rooms max 3 people, the kid over 1 under 9 counts as .5 so technically over crowding. However room measurements say something different. Rooms...

                      The lower of the two figures counts, so the flat does sound to be criminally overcrowded, in which case, both landlord and tenant are committing offences. However, can you confirm that the child was at least one year old when the family moved in, as the council can, and almost certainly will, give...
