    On another thread I've suggested trying Swarblaw forum which I've found excellent. It has numerous law forums including one on Company law.

      It should be the surveyor rather than the conveyancer who picks up that the property has a dpc.

      It is down to the conveyancer to check the planning title, but what he cannot do is guess what changes have been made to a property. If a conveyancer is told, for example, that a property has an extension, he can make the necessary enquiries.

        The OP would already know that from the other multitude of threads he/she has posted on the same scenario/topic (with trivial variation). Time wasted.

          See your other thread for lawcruncher's similar response. Moderator2 the various threads (about 4) should probably be merged.

            it would appear that in another court case that unless the lease covenants state what needs to be repaired and maintained ie structural foundations and damp then some work could be seen as improvements and some judge said that the freeholder can not expect to be given back an improvement to the property so if damp proofing is not in the lease it may well be classed as an improvement however I am not convinced about that as damp effects the property foundations of the building.

            Tanking does not protect the foundations (nor is there any reason it would given the position of application). If anything in can make them worse. Therefore this argument is not a valid one.

              And the question is?

              Please please do not post any more one liner threads on the same overall scenario, with so little content as to make no feasible meaningful response possible. What does "not insuring properly" mean? See numerous other threads on insurance.

                You appear to have raised the same point in previous threads, the response is likely to be the same.

                  I think Andrew makes a valid point. You need professional advice from a surveyor ( solicitor ?) well versed in leasehold law.
                  Tanking is an issue in some of my threads. You end up going round in circles unless you have authoritative opinion which is on the legal AND building issues.

                    Andrew...as a flat owner also trying to help another flat owner we have found that as time goes on more issues are arising and whilst they come under the banner of say insurance, the issues are different hence the different posts so one post was about insurance commission, another was about insurance not being put in place for a building which has suffered movement so this is a different issue...

                    yes they all come under insurance but they are different issues hence they cant be all posted at once because they come up at different times and now we have another insurance question about running a business which is not allowed and may affect the insurance.

                    the intention is to get help on different points. Fair enough if all the queries come up at once then they could all be posted as one thread however that has not been the chain of events so far..so hence they have not been posted all at once..

                      Another issue that is making this whole matter an impossible task to sort out is … the husband, the accountant and the solicitor (masquerading as Company Secretary and acting as Proxy) are all Freemasons!

                      A freemason’s oath holds inevitably the implication that loyalty to fellow freemasons...

                      Would anyone be able to advise if a RMC can raise sales invoices to Directors, for property expenses that relate to their leasehold properties. The sales invoices raise are itemised in the Notes to the service charges at. 4. Transactions with Directors and 5. Related party transactions

                      1. Because I have a duty to file accounts with Companies House to avoid ongoing fines and to keep costs under control do you think if I approach another accountant they will use the last set of accounts and amend the dates as you suggest. Will Companies House accept this.

                      2. Another accountant...

                      1. What happens when the late filing penalties are triggered. How long is the Company given to pay them?
                      2. What happens if the Company does not pay them or can’t pay them immediately.

                      Thank you for your feedback. The clause relating to the share of service charge is as follows



                      Isn’t that a rather vague definition? What if the Landlord/Receiver determines it fair not to contribute to the service charges? Is there legislation that regulates that freeholders...

                      Hello,

                      I am in the process of buying a leasehold apartment in a newly completed block of 32 residential flats plus one commercial space. None of the properties are sold yet as the object has just come on the market, after the developer went bust and receivers were instructed to sell the...

                      The ICAEW appears to be stating that the accountant should take a neutral position and not become involved in any dispute. So the accountant should be giving similar advice to the other leaseholders. It tells you that there is no point complaining to the ICAEW at this stage.

                      You could ask...

                      If your solicitor is unable to answer your questions, you should consider changing solicitor.

                      The clause states that you are only responsible for paying your share of the service charges from the date of your lease. There should be another clause within the lease which states how your share...

                      The Accountant said in an email....

                      " I also note you have placed yourself as the person(s) of significant control at Companies House and this is also incorrect."

                      Is he correct?...
