    Company Law

    Sorry this is not leasehold but affects leaseholders. Under AoA Company still has to hold AGM. However maximum number allowed to meet indoors is 6 from no more two households is my understanding.
    AGM for 10 dwellings would undoubtedly breach this. Future restrictions are uncertain. Any comments on the challenge and could AGM simply be deferred ?

    a) No reason an AGM has to be held indoors. Could be under a local tree.
    b) No reason everyone has to attend ... proxy votes etc etc.
    c) Private companies are not required to hold an AGM at all, so what you have to do is entirely dictated by the words in the articles. If the Articles are completely silent on the meaning of a meeting (e.g. not say specifically it has to be in person at all) I think you can just use the statutory written resolution procedure. What are the requirements for a quorum?
    d) If the articles say nothing, there is, as far as I am aware, nothing in the Companies Act 2006 which says that virtual (or partially virtual) AGMs are not valid if members can participate and be seen to vote.

      My understanding is that if the articles explicitly refer to an AGM and have not been amended then the requirement to hold an AGM is still there.

      For the OP see;

        • Service charges according to floorspace vs lease stipulation
          by Santa Fe
          Hello. I own a flat in a block of four. The new owner of the smallest flat is disputing their contribution to service charges based on floor size. All four flats have historically paid 25% each, but of the four leases only mine states that I pay 25%. I have spoken with a solicitor about this and he...

          Whether the complaining owner goes to a tribunal or a court, I think that on any assessment a basement bedsit paying the same as a two bedroom flat is not "fair and reasonable". You do not really want to be getting into tribunals or the like. I suggest you propose that the two bedroom flats...

        • AGM cancelled.
          by Grumio
          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...

          Call an EGM. Make sure you give proper notice and that it is legal (download a boilerplate notice off the internet). In that EGM you can vote new directors in, or even vote the old directors out.

        • Lease extension triggers doubling ground rent change
          by SouthernDave
          Has anyone had dealing with doubling ground rents?
          i have just asked for a quote for a lease extension and they are proposing new ground rent terms of a doubling ground rent every 25 years. My commercial guy has said some lenders don't like these which may reduce the value of the property of i...

          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...

        • 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...

        • 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...

          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...

          by Andrea Cunningham
          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...
