    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;


        Thanks for prompt and informative replies. Company kept need for AGM

          by Flashback1966
          I am a Freeholder. Have a flat there too. I have received an email from the leaseholder's soclitors acting for Mr A. They are doing a 2-1 transfer from the names of Mr A and Ms B to just Mr.

          The solicitors want to know the requirements on completion.

          Is is just a notice of...

          On what exact basis is the "fee" - what does lease say? Since you are doing it yourself, if a fee is allowed, would have thought "reasonable" might be about £5 for 10 minutes

          So the lease allows for the property to be kept in good condition.
          Thus, the shared hall could be spruced up no problem, but there is an issue with driveway - partially it belongs to the freeholder, partially to the ground floor leaseholder - it is made out of the old paving stones, it looks...

          In addition to the notices sometime the lease may require a deed of covenant and therefore you may need to prepare a deed of Covenant

          If there are any arrears these must be settled on completion...

          What does the lease say?

          You do not need confirmation from Mrs B.

          by Flashback1966
          The other flats are demanding I pay 38% of costs to extend leases when the freehold itself, a very comparable legal procedure, was calculated on an equal third share.

          Confused. Did you extend the lease or buy the Frehold?

          In my opinion, if the Freehold was purchased, it should...

          Hi there,

          I'm new to the forum and looking for advice on a sticky freehold situation.

          I own a two-bed flat in a converted building with two one-beds. The lease states that a fair proportion is payable towards the service charge. However, there has been a running agreement of...

          If the review is just between 2 flats, calling a meeting with upstairs leaseholder , to review quotations and decide which one to accept will be quicker than waiting for 30 days. With inflation around 10% p.a , the parties at the meeting could choose to accept a quotation at 2.5% higher than a...

          Does it matter that it has been more than six months since the RTM took control? Does it matter than the freeholder who I would like to see these accounts from sold the freehold more than 6months ago? Is there a standard template or form I could use to write to the previous freeholder?
