    Tenants AGM

    I am the Administrator for a Management Company for 17 flats. Regarding the Tenants AGM: does anyone know whether only the tenant who owns a flat (plus the directors etc.) is allowed to go to the AGM being held by the Manangement Company, or can the tenants family and friends attend too? Thank you, Veronica

    You can nominate a proxy to attend (and vote) in your place. Not sure that you can just bring along a whole large gaggle of people though.

    If you are trying to tell lessees that only the owner is allowed to attend then you cannot do that -- you have to allow them to nominate a proxy. Indeed if any voting at all is to take place you are probably obliged to inform them of proxy voting rights.

      ONLY the recognised shareholders can attend the A.G.M.

      Your register of shares / shareholders shows who has shares, and only they can attend.

      If there are joint shareholders ( actually named on the share certificate ( which of course you will have a photo copy of - wont you ) and in the company registry book.

      But ONLY one vote per share, which equates to one flat = one vote.

      Shareholders are members of the Company. If you are not a memver of the company, you cannot be admitted to the A.G.M.

      How long have you been running the company ?

      But it's good that you are asking questions.

      R.a.M.

        Addition. "If you are not a member of the company, you cannot be admitted to the A.G.M."
        unless you are given permission by the shareholder , via proxy vote, to attend and vote in the shareholders absence.

        You must send out proxy vote slips if an important resolution / vote is to take place,
        Example, change of, dismissal of, Directors.

          Proxy voters can attend AGM's, they don't need to be an owner/shareholder.

            Yes, we both hit "send" at the same time ( 10:55am ) for the additional information I omitted.

                Addition. 2

                You must also send out a proxy vote form that enables a shareholder to nominate someone else to attend the A.G.M. to every member, for every official meeting.

                Some info for you on other matters may be found at.

                  I think you can allow family members to attend the meeting, but you only allow the "leaseholder of the flat" to speak at the meeting .

                    NO.
                    No to uncle Tom Cobly and all.

                    An A.G.M. is a meeting of SHAREHOLDERS ONLY.
                    Repeat, SHAREHOLDERS ONLY
                    Nothing to do with anyone else who is not a shareholder.

                    If you want a private meeting of leaseholders, and their partners, then that is fine.

                    You do NOT bring your mother, father, sisters, brothers or friends to a Company Shareholder meeting.
                    In larger companies, if you don't show your share certificate, or I.D. to prove who you are and therefore that person is a registered shareholder. you don't get in.

                    NO,

                    Try and get into a real large profit making business A.G.M. without being a shareholder, and you will be removed; by force if necessary..

                        NO.
                        Tenants don't have A.G.M's
                        Companies have A.G.M's in which they invite the shareholders of the Company to attend.
                        Post number one said "to go to the AGM being held by the Management Company"

                        It's not a tenant's A.G.M.
                        The tenants ( Shareholders in the company ) attend an A.G.M. set by the Company. It "could" be described as a tenants ( shareholders only ) meeting, but this one is not a tenants informal get together, but an invitation from the Company to attend the companies A.G.M.

                        a) Leaseholders can ask if all tenants ( Leaseholders ) want to attend an informal meeting to discus things, and in private for leaseholders only without directors and without managing company or agents attending.
                        You can then ask if you can bring your mother, father, sisters, brothers or friends to this informal gaggle of leaseholders and include leaseholders who may not be shareholders.

                        b) For more pressing matters, a tenant or tenants ( leaseholders ) with a combined share capacity of 10 % ( 5% in some instances ) can request an E.G.M. be convened by the "Company" in which the leaseholders set the agenda in advance.

                          It may benefit older leases by removing "marriage value" from lease extensions but this would not help you _ and freeholders are also aware of imminent changes and may be more willing to negotiate prior.

                          Hi,

                          Hoping someone can advise. I am leaseholder and the landlord is a local council. my property is a flat and there are about 55 flats spread out over 3 floors.

                          Now the problem is that over the years the council has failed to maintain the exterior and communal areas - including...

                          If the lease states that you may charge a registration fee of £10, that is the amount you may charge, you are not entitled to increase the charge unless the lease specifically allows an increase. Even then you would be limited to a reasonable amount and £100 would be considered to be unreasonable....

                          I am a director of a Freehold Company of a small block of 28 flats in a popular residential area.

                          Over the past few years the majority of flats have been purchased by investors who sublet the flats on ASTs.

                          I sued my freeholder for failure to maintain my driveway, judge was quite damning but I was only awarded £100 as hard to proof any loss BUT in your case it sounds you have exceptional worry over various incidents so yes you could sue and as I found out it was useful, I got costs too and its something...

                          In a block of 24, unfortunately one flat has become dilapidated. The new owner has bought cheaply. She is now demanding the Freeholder pays to refurbish it claiming they have been negligent. Is there a reasonable case ?

                          If a leaseholder can show that internal maintenance is required because of a freeholder's negligence (e.g. a failure to meet external maintenance obligations according to the terms of the lease), they will potentially have a claim against the freeholder and be entitled to expect the freeholder (the...

                          The previous owner might have had a case. The new owner I think only for claims for problems during their ownership. But ianal.

                          Presumably she got a great price as it was so dilapidated
