    Can I Change My Fence in a Shared Garden?

    I bought my leasehold flat because it has a garden. Although the garden is shared, we all have our own little section which we all respect. The shared garden overlooks another street because the garden fence is so low, you can see right onto this street. On this street lives a very verbally abusive man who is none stop, and regularly brings his raging arguments out onto the street and it disrupts the area, the police are down there every other week and nothing seems to be getting resolved...My question is, seeing as I live in a leasehold flat with a shared garden, how possible is it for me to install higher fences to improve mine and my neighbors safety and privacy? Is this something I can ask of the landlord? I don't know of my neighbors contractual agreements and if they are the same as mine or not, so it’s hard to know what we are all entitled to, and if the low fence can be changed, who pays for it? If anyone can give any advice at all it would make my day.

    It is both a managing agent and a residence Association. But we want to go back to managing the block ourselves.

    Thanks for the reply, yes invitations have been sent to all our members. And I agree, they should not cancel the AGM, especially when they haven’t got a plausible reason to...

    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...

    Doubling every 25 years is simply a guess as to what inflation may be, if inflation of the current levels ( about 6% ) was to continue the real value of the rent would fall by 77% and doubling would not address the enormous damage done by inflation. However, if inflation was less than 2.81% per annum...

    You are clearly using the informal route and can thus negotiate whatever terms you like.
    freeholder will want to retain some ground rent but avoid the doubling clause, maybe suggest small fixed rises every ten years....

  • Service charges according to floorspace vs lease stipulation
    by Santa Fe
    Hello. I own a flat in a block of four. The new owner of the smallest flat is disputing their contribution to service charges based on floor size. All four flats have historically paid 25% each, but of the four leases only mine states that I pay 25%. I have spoken with a solicitor about this and he...

    Yes, I am confused too. If there is a Residents Association, it is required to comply with its constitution.

    There seems to be a Company involved as well. Whether or not it is required to hold an AGM depends on its Articles, AGMs can be cancelled for various reasons, lockdowns are an example,...

    I think that we have found 3 possible alternatives already and no doubt we could find more, As Section20z says it is very rare for a court or a tribunal to intervene, The lease appears to allow the freeholder (?) to decide what is fair and reasonable and it has decided that an equal share is reasonable,...

    Is this a Residence Association or Residents Management Company?

    Had invitations to the AGM been sent out to all members? If invitations had been issued then no the AGM should not have been cancelled.

    If the 2 directors are "good friends of the managing agent" they...
