    Can management company just issue fines without notice

    My mother came to visit me a couple of times and she has a dog, when she is about to leave she normally ties him outside the flat, there is a little cupboard which houses water meters in the hallway , right next to us while she uses the toilet etc the dog is outside for possibly 5 or 10 mins ..he is an old dog.

    today I received a email form the management company [ who are useless in dealing with many issues like rough sleepers, people drinking outside our car park, security and constant leaks and lift failures to name a few ] that they have seen the dog being left unattended and they are going to issue a fine

    I really surprised at this ..... but I have complained about the services they have offered a few times to them and they are probably not my greatest wishers

    can they just do that, and on what basis ..... what should I say , any advice would be really welcome

    thank you

      I can issue a fine to Bozo the clown ( aka Boris Johnson) for being a useless PM. But if I wish to enforce it I need a court order... expired...
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

          The point is I think, like parking operators , they can issue a penalty but you don't have to pay it, unless enforced by a court which they certainly wouldn't do in your case unless the lease made strict provision for it which seems unlikely.
          Why not tell them you are sorry someone was upset but you have no control over your mother or her dog but will ask her not to let it happen again
          Or just ignore them.

            Unless it's detailed in the letter, I'd simply ask what regulation that you have agreed to they think is being broken by someone leaving a dog tied up outside your home and on what basis they think they can fine you.

            Nice and neutral.
            Don't offer a defence or argue the toss, just ask the question.
            When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
            Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).
