        Warning to anyone wanting to respond: Multiple replicate threads

          I don't have any problem with issues being posted more than once. New people can join the forum, further thought perhaps from a different view can lead to an opinion evolving ( change your mind ! )

            Most of the serious (or less serious) long time posters here do object. because it is not possible to make sense of a specific scenario when you get multiple parts of it in different threads on different days of the same week, with thoughtful comments detached from each other.

            We are not talking about similar scenarios being discussed by different people. We are talking about wasting time and disrespecting everyone involved.

            Also see forum rule 11 - so it is not just my opinion it is the RULE

              Admission, I had not read the rules. Wish they applied to each and every forum on the internet.

                Yes a chartered RICS surveyor surveyed the property and has not considered its history..he seems to have surveyed the property as a modern building and I have now found out he has mentioned nothing about movement which means the building has not been insured properly.

                  I would say that sometimes some issues come up and sometimes not all the facts are known at the time so through further asking on this site it helps when things which are new come up so that we can hep each other...its not duplication, its about exploring and finding out what are all the facts...people can comment or have a choice not to comment.

                    That's what I think.

                      An obligation to maintain something that is not there would seem to be a clause with no effect. Boilerplate contracts often have clauses that cover things that might not apply to the circumstances. "Repair and maintain" does not mean you have to improve anything.

                      Why would you sign a contract you did not read and then object later?
                      Andrew...when I bought a property I asked the conveyancing solicitor and a surveyor to provide me with paid professional advice...I trusted and relied on this advise most people do...so in 2018 it transpires that dues to a number of property issues what I have been told by these so called " professionals" does not quite add up...so I go googling, investigating, speaking to other professionals and asking for helpful advice on this site in the hope others may be able to shed some light on their experience and their own issues so we can all help each other..I have not signed a contract I have not read, I have been provided with a contract and building insurance which does not meet the needs of the building as my stupid surveyor and seller misled us..

                        Yes thank you Scot so today I found out about a fab company called TyMawr who offer enviromentally traditional products which I will be buying to help remove the wrong plaster and paint and I have been told about Newton waterproofing which is another good tanking solution for any listed buildings which many Council heritage and conservation officers approve of..

                                That you are obviously looking to make claims on people's indemnity policies for spurious reasons?

                                  The budget proposal is a rough estimate of maintenance spending for the year and is used to calculated what each flat should be charged for their annual service charge levy.

                                  The audited accounts which are produce about 6 months after the year end will show you what was actually spent

                                  Hi
                                  I have received a budget for the servcie charges for 2020. This is sent as a budget proposal, but at same time suggests that charges will start in January 2020, making it not a proposal but a matter of fact, as far as the service agent is concerned.
                                  I am querying one of the proposed...

                                  Dear all,
                                  I hope this forum can guide me to the next step. I have a leasehold apartment, which I purchased in July 2007. I have never been able to go through the whole lease esp the page no1, which clearly defines the service charges as 1%. I am however been charged 2%( extra 1% for communal areas,...

                                  I've re-read the lease extract, and it still seems to me that most of the items under block costs relate to internal common area items.

                                  What I suspect has happened is that 4 of the leases have different wordings, that fail to cover those items, and those don't get the internal items list,...

                                  Looks like there are 101 properties on the estate, 96 of them contribute to your apartment charge and 92 to your internal charge.

                                  What are the actual numbers in each category?

                                  The actual percentages differ from the lease, but are more accurate for an equal split 101/96/92 ways....

                                  Here is a breakdown of service charges:
                                  the internal area cost- is not being paid by equivalent apartments(very few)- which do not have internal areas.
                                  thanks...

                                  Only if the lease requires that. There is no legal requirement to provide details of the budget, although it is best practice to do so.

                                  The typical reason for seeing new types of charge is health and safety, e.g. emergency light testing.

                                  FTT and tribunal should be next step

                                  and then small claims court for debt recovery if all goes ok

                                  I'm one of the directors of an RMC looking after a leasehold building (having recently taken over from an external property manager).

                                  The company is dormant at HMRC. It has a business account, unused. All of our funds (service charge monies) are in a separate client account.

                                  1. When you say “separate from personal expenses” - I don’t understand. Which expenses are you referring to?

                                  2. Ok (I think)

                                  3. I have a debit card for the RMC’s normal business account, but not for the “bolt on” client account. I wasn’t...
