    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.

    You have to ask for them , if over due .


      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.

        Hi there,

        I'm new to the forum and looking for advice on a sticky freehold situation.

        I own a two-bed flat in a converted building with two one-beds. The lease states that a fair proportion is payable towards the service charge. However, there has been a running agreement of...

        I suggest that you ask the other 2 leaseholders to explain why they consider that the current allocation is fair. The freeholder has the right to review the allocation from time to time. Unfortunately, a "fair proportion" means that several alternatives would be considered reasonable to a...

        You appear to have a claim against the freeholder, not the individual companies, who are acting as agent for the freeholder. A Tribunal does not have the jurisdiction to deal with monies which should be handed over, it is a matter for the courts,

        RTM handing over issues

        Our RTM companies comprise 4 blocks of 6 identical two bedroom flats and each block is registered at Companies House as a separate company.
        Following the acquisition date, it was discovered the former directors ignored legal advice and changed property management companies...

        Since obtaining the RTM and changing the managing agent, we have never been given full accounts / receipts for the previous year(s). We believe that as the old freeholder and leaser holder of one of the flats were represented by the same solicitor that prior to the sale of the freehold, we were subsidising...

        You do not appear to hold sufficient information to make a claim against the freeholder at this stage. I suggest that you apply to the FTT to challenge the charges. You would then be able to ask the Tribunal to direct the freeholder to disclose further information....

      • S20 - Quotes not valid for long enough for 30 day consult
        by Flatman78
        Hi LZ Community

        Just wondering if anyone's had/having any issues with S20 and allowing leaseholder 30 days to review estimates, raise concerns etc.

        Building material prices have fluctuated massively since covid and brexit.
        with a combination of Brexit, impact from russia/ukraine...

        With just two properties involved, and you being a resident, your best option would probably be to agree a time to talk through the proposed work and the need to skip the full 30 days that are supposed to be allowed for each stage of consultation.
        If the other leaseholder has any major concerns,...

        This really doesn't help at all.

        In what was does the driveway partially belong to the freeholder and partially to the leaseholder?
        Are you saying that part of the driveway is demised to this leaseholder and part is undemised and therefore a common area? Or does the freeholder have...

        by davetg
        30 years ago I bought a flat from a friend. The freehold at the time was registered to my friend and the lady who owned the other flat. I understood at the time that I would replace the friend on the freehold but this never happened. This was not a problem until now as when work on the structure of...
