Is the roof demised, and is it my job (financial responsibility) to fix it?

    Either of them you mean?


      SUPER appreciative of that, I'll put that together and post it soon. Thank you!


        Bringing this post back from the dead... Thanks for your help so far everyone!
        So I've given them more than enough time. Totally ignored (I guess partially expected).
        Is this where I go to the Ombudsman just to ensure I've exhausted all options before I (potentially) take it any further? I'm feeling a bit like, if I get nothing from this channel, a tribunal wouldn't really be an option and I might just have to sell the flat. It's not making me much money, and when something does happen to the roof, it's going to cost me a fortune lol. Especially if I really am solely responsible.

        However, for now, I'm leaning towards the complaint to the ombudsman resting on the fact that the Managing Agent is failing to maintain the roof and I'm fearful that any damage due to neglect will potentially hit me hard financially? Their selective interpretation of the lease on behalf of the Freeholder is going to damage my property which I have no real power to remedy without their assistance. Does that sound like the angle?

          I was thinking rather on the same lines which is why I asked the OP if he and his wife had signed the indemnity, hoping they had not so I did not have to consider the effect of the document. I have now considered it and concluded that it probably does not override the lease. However, there is still...

          Hi all,

          Looking for some advice. My wife and I recently bought a leasehold property in London. The property came with wooden flooring, and the lease specified no wooden flooring could be installed without consent.

          The lease states, with regards to the flooring issue:

          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

          If you were filing a false document, I would agree, however, you are not and there is a greater risk of being personally responsible for the ongoing penalties which are being incurred. You are acting consistently with your claim that the previous officers of the Company could and should have filed statutory...

          It doesn't sound to me that this is an issue with what is/isn't demised.
          It sounds like the floor covering is within the demise, but the floor covering present at the time of purchase was one that the lease does not allow without the freeholder's consent.

          The indemnity that was signed...

          Your lease should state what is included in your demise, therefore responsible to maintain / fix .
          It usually states, you are demised
          the floor boards, internal plaster over the bricks, and either half the floor joists, and half the ceiling joists. If it does not include mention of the joists,
