    Incorrect address on freehold title

    We have various problems with our freeholder. Mostly the usual ; absent, unresponsive, slow, expensive. Interested in RTM or purchase of freehold if we can muster the required leaseholder numbers.

    It has come to my attention that the freehold title in the register contains a significant error in the address. It shows the wrong number for the building. It is completely wrong, not just a transposed digit. Would this be advantageous to us leaseholders in any way? It seems to me that there is an argument that FH does not even own our building (...although I suspect that this is an argument I would ultimately lose). Still, it is often the case that various rights are contingent on all legalities being in good order.
    There is a fine line between irony and stupidity. If I say something absurd please assume that I am being facetious.

    If the LR plan correctly identifies the property the misdescription is of no importance.

    A possible explanation is that the buildings have been renumbered since the freehold was registered.

      Understood, thanks.

      Renumbering would explain it but I doubt that is the case here. The building is relatively modern. It was built about twelve years ago or so.

        Check with your local council for billing address. A building only 12 years old should not have the wrong number in the address

          The freehold could though have been registered many years ago. Does the LR plan show the footprint of the existing buidling or an older one? Has there been in any infilling in the street?

          If no one has noticed the wrong number it could be because the building is now referred to by name - something like "Priory Court".

            The LR do not normally change the number or name of a property unless asked to do so.

              1. Yes, possible that freehold pre-dates the building (but I have been presuming not). Not sure off the top of my head what was on the site before. The current building was a new-build.

              2. I haven't seen the plan. The text part, which I have got, was provided to me by another leaseholder.

              3. Yes the building is referred to by name as well as number. In that respect the address is only partially incorrect.

                  Thanks Gordon999

                  You can see from above reply to Macromia that's your comment wouldn't be relevant to me. there is no managing agent. It's just me (FH) and LH in upstairs flat.
                  Thanks for taking time to reply though....

                  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.

                  Thanks Macromia, I'm hoping not to have to request quotes to include extra 'contingency' as I know some building materials literally jumped by up to 80% pretty much overnight and so I / we could end up paying a hell of a lot more than we have to go with a 'protective' quote.

                  You could sue the other company for the money owed.

                  You could show the last service charge demanded by previous managing agent . There should be a final summary of the service charge account.to show the unspent funds.

                  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...

                  Good questions.
                  The fact that the cost of work means that Section 20 consultation is required doesn't necessarily mean that it is major work that will require a project manager and, although most leases will contain clauses that allow the cost of project management to be recovered from leaseholders,...

                  Hi. I have a freehold after selling a leasehold flat in a block of 4 flats. We don't currently have a managing agent, so these duties currently fall to me (I am holding off appointing a managing agent whilst the leaseholders consider whether they want to RTM).
