    Service Charge accounts not received yet

    Good morning,

    Given the year we've had I'm trying to evaluate how many other leaseholders are experiencing a delay in receiving their Service Charge accounts.

    For those RMCs self managing did you experience any long term delay in getting your accounts certified?

    For our development the lease states the management company is obliged to provide them by the end of June.

    Thanks in advance to any experiencing the same delay.

      Hi Gordon,

      Thank you for replying.

      After waiting 8 weeks I did ask the agent if the delay could be explained and when I would receive them.

      The email was ignored twice until a formal complaint was sent and then a reply received stating that the pandemic had unfortunately caused a backlog of work for them and their accountants.

      • Reply to AGM cancelled.
        by Andrea Cunningham
        Call an EGM. Make sure you give proper notice and that it is legal (download a boilerplate notice off the internet). In that EGM you can vote new directors in, or even vote the old directors out.

        Is this legal?

        A bit of background, we currently have three directors, we are allowed to have up to a maximum of eight directors according to the articles of association. We are all leaseholders. Last summer the three directors decided to hire a managing agent who is now in charge of the...

      • Lease extension triggers doubling ground rent change
        by SouthernDave
        Has anyone had dealing with doubling ground rents?
        i have just asked for a quote for a lease extension and they are proposing new ground rent terms of a doubling ground rent every 25 years. My commercial guy has said some lenders don't like these which may reduce the value of the property of i...

      • What can I do about my right of way.
        by Trevor62
        I live in the upper flat of a maisonette, I have a right of way that goes around the back of the building from the side entrance, there are only two flats in the building.

        Anyway for years there has been a gate with a lock to go through the right of way, now for the past year the flat has...

        This is the ROW as it is in the land registry.


        Can I ask another question?

        As you can read it says Boundary determined by edge of pavings. Before the other party moved out they built a fence along the boundary though they build it on my side of the...

      • Enfranchising from a company I'm already a member of.
        by Andrea Cunningham
        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...

        As I said right at the beginning, there are some very sound reasons to do this which I wasn't going to go into. Suffice it to say that the current situation is one where the building I live in suffers under the tyranny of the majority of the larger building. So what is being sought is genuine control...

        There is already no ground rent collected - so as I understand it the value of the freehold might be quite low anyway.

        If this is all done by negotiation then it is a moot point regardless, and it brings me back to what I was actually asking about, which is how to fairly and equitably split...

        That potentially raises an interesting question about what happens to any money that needs to be paid for the enfranchisement.
        At the moment payment is handed over, all those in the block being enfranchised would presumably cease to be members of the company - so wouldn't be entitled to any share...

        That may not be your intention, but it definitely seems like you haven't given proper consideration to what enfranchisement would involve.

        What do the leases specifically say about what is included within service charge/maintenance costs and how service charge costs are to be split?...
