    Another issue that is making this whole matter an impossible task to sort out is … the husband, the accountant and the solicitor (masquerading as Company Secretary and acting as Proxy) are all Freemasons!

    A freemason’s oath holds inevitably the implication that loyalty to fellow freemasons may supersede any other loyalty even the rule of law.

      1. What happens when the late filing penalties are triggered. How long is the Company given to pay them?
      2. What happens if the Company does not pay them or can’t pay them immediately.
      3. I will need to make a claim to court to recover the costs incurred (penalties) and make the previous Directors and husband liable. That will take months some times years to get an order from the court and the money.
      4. These Tribunal proceedings have already taken nearly three years! And we are no where near a conclusion.
      5. The executor of the deceased shareholder is the husband !! How do I find out who the solicitor is who would be dealing with probate?
      1 All I can find is that the date for payment is stated on the demand
      2 You can try to appeal against the penalty but there are limited grounds or you can request payment in instalments
      3-5 I would ask the manager to pay and she can then take steps to recover amounts. Did she not seek to recover company expenses?

        1. Because I have a duty to file accounts with Companies House to avoid ongoing fines and to keep costs under control do you think if I approach another accountant they will use the last set of accounts and amend the dates as you suggest. Will Companies House accept this.

        2. Another accountant will probably not want to get involved when they are aware of the dispute.
        The accountant I have appointed will not act until the dispute is over.

        3. Is there a contact number for ICAEW. The previous accountant has given me a case number and name who he spoke to but, on the site there is no contact number for non members to call. It appears only members have access.

        4. If I submitted the accounts as you suggest. Would I be breaching any accounting rules or regulations.
        1 You do not need an accountant to prepare statutory accounts, if you look at the last set of accounts which were filed, there was no mention of an accountant and no accountant's report. Companies House will accept anything as long as it is signed by a director, see page 4 (actually numbered 2). It is hardly onerous, you are only confirming 2 figures which are unchanged.
        2 You may be able to find an unqualified accountant to act but there could be difficulty with no accounting information available. You would need to sign a letter confirming that you accept responsibility for the accounts anyway, so I cannot see the point of paying any extra cost.

          The close relationship between the trouble makers hasn't got them very far to date, you seem to be winning most of the battles.There doesn't seem to be any need for you to join a secret society yet.

            "see page 4 (actually numbered 2). It is hardly onerous, you are only confirming 2 figures which are unchanged."

            1. I have been onto the Companies House site and opened the pdf of the 2017 accounts to checkout page 4 (numbered page 2) and there are no figures! It is titled "Balance Sheet (continued) as at 31 December 2017"
            and below that the name of the Directors and the company Registration number.

            2. The Download version would not open because I don't have the application to open it apparently.

            3. Do I need to start the process "File your company accounts" before I can see the 2 figures that you refer to.

            4. What column are the 2 figures that will be unchanged itemised under?

            5.I am nervous to start the online process of "File your company accounts" before I know what I am doing so I don't file anything incorrectly.


              I agree, the actual numbers are contained on page 3, confusingly numbered 1. I can send you a PDF by private message if you wish..

              The online filing is quite simple, there are a series of questions to answer and you complete the numbers. It automatically fills in the totals and there are various checks built in to avoid errors. It allows you to check the information before you submit for filing.



                How can you become appointed as a director if the majority of members don't agree and have not voted you in as a director at an AGM?


                  [QUOTE=eagle2;n1164773]I I can send you a PDF by private message if you wish..

                  Thank you that would be useful.


                    I'd be very wary of filing a false financial instrument particularly with the revelations about the other parties


                      If you were filing a false document, I would agree, however, you are not and there is a greater risk of being personally responsible for the ongoing penalties which are being incurred. You are acting consistently with your claim that the previous officers of the Company could and should have filed statutory accounts.


                        I agree with Eagle 2 - As Director I am complying with the Companies Act 2006 to act in the best interests of the Company.

                          So the flat I'm considering will apparently come with a new leasehold of 99 years. If I pay full asking price (10k more than I think it's worth) then the flat will come with a 125 year lease. I'm new to leasehold. Is there any benefit to getting the 125 and paying extra? The flat is around 100k to buy...

                          Hi guys.

                          Sorry I may have misled getting some of my terminology wrong.

                          So I'm a BTL landlord with one semi in my portfolio. This is my first flat that I wish to buy as a BTL and the first time I've come across leasehold.

                          Creating a pseudo arm of the freeholder with an intent to create a fee generating entity is basically a type of fraud. You have the right to enforce the lease, and collect ground rent, but not to make any money out of the freehold at all (apart from on reversion/lease extension).

                          by zena
                          I share the freehold with one other flat. The third flat is leasehold only. There is no management company and things are ad hoc - there is no right for the freeholders to charge any management fees or recover expenses for their time. When everyone is friendly, fair and responsive it's great but...

                          As vmart says, and consider whether you really want to buy a leasehold flat at all (or purchase property at all in a City where you might be forced to do so within your price range). May be cheaper to rent....

                          In your case, I would suggest it would not be worth paying + £10K for the additional term. You would likely be better off renewing the lease via the statutory route once you are the leaseholder. This will add 90 years to the term of 99 years, reduce ground rent to a peppercorn (£0) and enable you...

                          Which means if anyone over the initial 15 wish to join the company and be a shareholder, just like the 15 that contributed £ 9000, then you would be within your right to ask for £ 600 to become a member.
                          As why should someone who wants to join afterwards pay any less than each

                          I am part of a residents association that is exploring right to manage (RTM).

                          We are a 30 flat block in the Ealing area.

                          We want to get advice on the process so how much should we be expecting to pay for our legals?
