    Section 20b tenant advice

    Hi all,

    I am after some advice regarding a section 20b I was issued. It was issues in September 2018 for year end 3oth March 2018. It can itemised with amounts totaling around 12k.

    We have only now had the account and demand for the additional payments. However the total development figure they are looking to recover is 31k - which is the total loss on the accounts.

    The problem I have here is that some items they are asking for payment for are not on the section 20b notice, some are lower than asked for on the section 20b and others that were listed on the section 20b do not feature in the accounts.

    Can anyone advice on where I stand with this please

      The freehold must be registered, I suppose no reply from the address on the register?

      Hi, I am new to the forum and sorry for jumping in but cannot find an answer that helps through the search function. I accepted an offer on my leasehold flat 2 months ago and I thought was close to exchange but the buyers solicitors are asking for my freeholder details. I renewed the lease in 2010...

      Thank you for your replies which give me food for thought.
      Actually there are 3 floors and my flat occupies the third floor so I am the most inconvenienced by the present arrangement but don't mind as being a reclusive kind of person don't get a lot of people ringing my bell anyway!...

      I'm the lessee of a flat in a 6 flat block.
      Although there is a main door intercom connected to each flat, when residents answer they cannot buzz open the main door but have to open it manually. This system was put in place many years ago for security purposes after a spate of break-ins...

      Fair point andy. Could of course be 3 on 2 levels. I commented without relevant facts.
