    Lease not enforced

    Hi All;
    I live in a block development of 30 flats (each flat has a share of the freehold), I have a big problem with the board of directors and management not enforcing the lease.
    In affect my problem is very much like the one in the following post:
    https://forums.landlordzone.co.uk/fo...terms-of-lease
    Since I first moved in to my property I have started to notice that the company directors (effectively the landlords) are not enforcing the lease and that the managing company is not doing anything about that either. More and more things are ignored. Toys in the communal gardens that seemed to have permanently moved in to the gardens, Trampoline and Swing, 2m by 2m by 2m shed in the communal garden, SORN and un-taxed cars parked in the communal car park, hard flooring, unauthorized pets ( while there is ‘No Pets’ clause) and the latest Cannabis. I am sure the list is longer if I were to invest more time in investigating the breaches.
    I am worried that I may be over zealous in trying to force the lease to a point that it will actually bring it to a point where Tribunal / lawyers will tear the lease away as it is not worth the paper it is written on (as in 'waiver').
    I am willing to take it to F.T.T and even take legal action against the board of directors and the management. However, it appears the breaches have been going on for along time 10+years so I don't know what are my chances in getting it fixed or getting others to support my action.
    I have become one of the directors to try and fix it but without success. So do I need to resign before taking it to F.T.T. or before taking any legal actions?
    I am really desperate for some help.

    Many Thanks.

    Hey, I would really like some advice about this as I am a female who lives alone and I am getting worried. The couple who I share the freehold with (just 2 flats in the house), dont get along and we have had problems agreeing over maintenance. I avoid them as much as possible but a neighbour told me...

    That seems like a great idea letting out a spare room. Make sure its someone who would not feel intimidated. Also agree with Xmas cards every bit helps. Also tell all contractors not to engage with them at all and ignore them....

    Hey, I have thought about renting but I love my flat and had expensive new kitchen put in. Not sure I would be happy if tenants damaged. Also, I think that my mortgage restricts letting out my flat. I love the area and was happy until the couple took over the joint freehold. I might get a tenant to...

    If I asked the managing agents for a situation report regarding overall arrears of service charge, are they duty bound to let me know. not by flat,of course, but as a % of total invoiced, with info regarding length of arrears?

    There is no reason why you cannot request and no reason why the managing agent cannot supply general information regarding the level of service charge arrears. It would only become an issue if any personal information was supplied or could be identified,

    OK....no i am not one of those........ but seems odd then that the managing agent was very quick to tell all leaseholders in writing that a certain % of leaseholders had paid in advance of a large section 20, by way of coercion to those who had not paid.

    Have you thought about renting the place and just giving the old neighbour an email address for communication with an auto response saying I only pick up email from this account once a month. Not ideal but another option.
