    Insurance cover is fine.. besides getting more expensive each year

      the fact that she can, makes me worry.

      supposing she takes me to court, do I have any options if she did ask me to re instate the windows as the original windows. Wooden sash windows are pretty darn expensive.

        How is the freehold title held? Is it a company of which you are both directors or do you hold it in your joint names?

          We hold it in our joint names.

          We don't have a company

            KrispyCream , we all can sue. Practicality of this solution is somewhat doubtful.
            If you already did the windows, why worry?
            Enjoy your windows while they last

              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...

            • 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...

              by Andrea Cunningham
              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...

            • 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...

              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?...

              by Macromia
              Yes, without the windows being specifically mentioned as being the lessee's responsibility to repair, you may have a very good chance of successfully arguing that they are the lessors responsibility as part of the 'main structure'. There is likely to be other case law that also supports this.
