    Phone numbers

    It seemed reasonable to me to pass on the
    ​​phone no of the flat above when it is leaking water into the flat below. But the person causing the leak is unhappy! As freeholder I would like all the flat residents to swap details but they expect me to sort out noise rubbish etc etc....
    Any suggestions?

    What do the leases state upon the matter??

    Understand these modern 'phone thingies are popular, but what's preventing people knocking on doors or writing letters to each other??

    It seems reasonable to me that the PM should be doing a decent, honourable job, but I'm sadly disappointed over the matter..
    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...


      If I was the freeholder, I would want all contact details of each leaseholder, correspondence address, email, telephone, etc in case there is any issues in the future (fire, debt recovery).


        Have you issued a GDPR privacy notice to each leaseholder and registered with the ICO?


          A leaseholder can reasonably object to his phone number being released to someone else without his permission. It is only a matter of seeking his permission first.


            For a really bad leak which affected the wiring of the flat below I have heard of the fire brigade breaking in on safety grounds to turn off the water. In some situations it would be reasonable for the free holders
            to do the same.


              That is a different matter, the lease probably allows you to gain access to a flat in case of emergency. It does not mean that you can ignore your duty to respect personal information.

                Can anyone tell me whether the value of a flat is adversely affected if the development is self managed by an RTM? I've been told that the value is reduced by 35% and I would not be able to get a mortgage. Thanks

                Off hand I can only think of a flat having a very short lease that might affect a property’s value to such a degree.

                I think a flat managed by rtm company might increase its saleability.

                That happens too, in fact it seems to be the freeholders who are the most guilty of abuse who are the first to threaten legal action.
                Much as I am enjoying this debate, I am aware that we are departing from the original question.

                by flyingfreehold
                Boards at different blocks are approaching this differently. We have a few blocks under professional management and the managing agents have variously either gone for a door upgrading scheme with every door upgraded to a new FR30 or a scheme whereby the doors are retrofitted with smoke seals, self closing...

                by Codger
                Some leaseholders have installed front doors that have upvc frames and glass panels. It is likely to be mentioned in a fire risk assessment for the block so I wonder what we can do to enforce a recommendation to install firedoors.

                Sorry I have read it wrong

                Regulation 1985 Table A shall apply to the Company
                Regulations 73- 80 (inclusive) are not included and 84,87,94 to 97 (inclusive ) are not included which makes 81 included.

                My mistake....

                Hi I have experienced a leak to my apartment and the apartment below has also experienced the same issue (the video evidence is very similar (water coming in through an extractor vent into my bathroom)).

                I had a contractor out to assess my property who said there was no leak from my apartment...

                In my experience most flats leak on to other flats. I would replace the bath trap myself to be sure it was done right and make sure I had a service valve on the toilet cistern as they often leak.
