    You don't need to produce the report, but a qualified assessor which is appointment, if you want the sale to proceed you should accept it (after all your not paying for it), If it was me, I would, after all you would know the results for any future sales.

    The buyer can demand whatever they want of the seller and the seller can agree or decline.
    The buyer can't demand anything of the freeholder or the management company.

    The seller can request your cooperation with their getting such a report done.

    Thanks. No, nothing has shown up on the survey to my knowledge.

    They can request it and you can tell them how much it will be, it would then be upto them to undertake this at their cost. was it flagged up on a survey report?

    If the buyer wants any other report he pays for it himself. Why would asbestos be any different?

    Buyer's solicitors insisting on an Asbestos report

    Hi there,

    We (me and two others) own a three-storey Victorian property that is divided into three flats and we each have the leasehold for one each. Each flat part shares in the management company that owns the freehold, and manages the property. The ground floor flat is currently going through a sale process, with the buyer's solicitors insisting on an asbestos report being produced for the building.

    I cannot find anywhere (although that doesn't mean it doesn't exist) regulations/legal obligations that we as the management company have to produce a report?

    Can anyone provide advice on this, please?

    Many thanks,

    TML

    Is it 3/4 of shareholders, or 3/4 of a quorate meeting? Could be 4 people needed in the former case, but possibly only 3 in the latter.

    Likeliest is that most decisions are made by a majority of votes at a quorate meeting - if there is a 50/50 impasse then the chair has a right to a casting...

    Good Morning. I'm brand new to this site so I apologise if this question is in the wrong section.

    My wife and I live in a self contained apartment in a converted old house. There are five apartments in total, occupied by five separate couples. We are all leaseholders and we collectively,...

    The estate I live on has 2 blocks. All the leaseholders are members of the company which owns the freehold and manages the block ("Share of freehold").

    Suppose one of the 2 blocks decides to go it alone - so in other words gain the freehold from a company they are already a member...

  • Isn't there any obligation to be insured?
    by Sarah17
    Hi All,
    I recently bought a flat and learned since that the flat above is a regulated tenancy. The current tenant has moved in 1972. The flat is in a very shabby state, and I am worried about it (safety concerns, fire risk...etc). I wrote to the landlord and didn't receive any answer yet. A few...

    Hi All, many many thanks for your answers. As it is a regulated tenancy (beginning in 1972), indeed the rent is very low, the LL is doing the minimum expecting the tenant to move. I had the opportunity to look inside, it sounds in a very bad state, but I don't know up to which point this is just a...

    I'm afraid there is not the slightest chance that the roofs will all be done at once so that one's out. Although the flats are managed well, the garages never have been. The other garages in that block of six are owned by the freeholder. With him, it's a case of 'I won't do anything unless I can get...

    A year ago I bought a run down garage with a leaking roof. I thought I would be able to fix it with Flashband but it was impossible. I got a new roof and door and let it out to a neighbour. The flats are managed but the garages are not.

    Yesterday I got a text from the owner of the adjoining...

    I don't think you'll hear from your roofer, Naomi. I refer you to what I said before.



    Whatever he does will be done grudgingly, even if you get trading standards involved. Do you really want him to come back to do more of the same?

    As before, the roofs need all...

    I wrote to my roofer on 10 Jan but have had no reply. On Thursday my son went up to get better pictures. They show that the rubber has flapped right back and needs re-fixing. I wrote to him again on Friday but haven't had a reply. I am worried he is going to say it's wind damage but surely, with...
