    Lintel missing 1970 building

    Should our service charges pay for a lintel above my replacement windows of my owned flat in 1970 block I am replacing old pvc windows at my cost and there is no lintel which i believe is now necessary for building regs Is this not part of structure of building ?

    Repairs to structure will normally come from service charge, who else would pay for your flat ?
    Are you sure there's no lintel - even stone age man put lintels in.

      They didn't in my brother's house in Cheshire for a couple of windows, Edwardian I'd say.

        Must have had a magic brickie who laid the bricks over the apertures.

          You should put one in just to make it safe for persons inside the flat. Some times the builders employ contract brick layers who "make do" without and don't bother to follow the regulations. A few years ago, the neighboring block of flats were found without wire ties between outer and inner brick walls.
