    Leaseholder in breach of lease

    Hello everyone,

    We collectively own the freehold of a building and one of the owners has rented out her flat as a flat share (4 independent and unrelated individuals). Her lease with the freehold interest strictly prohibits renting out the flat to sharers.
    In addition, the 4 tenants behave in an anti-social way overnight by playing loud music and having loud parties until the early hours. The flat owner’s lease prohibits all noise after 11pm, seven days a week.

    I have spoken to the managing agent who has confirmed they can definitely enforce the lease. How strong is our case to have the tenants evicted as this is the outcome that we want?

    Thank you.

    Is the budget a board of directors decision or MUST it be ratified by shareholders at the A.G.M ?

    If so would it be an ordinary resolution or special requiring 75% to be ratified ?

    I may have shares in B.T. so can I object to their spending of £ millions on below ? which are not needed, as there are plenty of other firms doing it ?

    Hi all.

    The residents management company is currently being run by a director who is very uncooperative. After 2 years of asking for a meeting, asking for copies of accounts, the insurance policy, just anythings in relation to the limited company, he refuses and continues to be very difficult....

    You can arrange a meeting of members but you must include on the agenda that you intend to remove the director. You must give special notice to the director that he is subject to the vote and you must allow him to make a statement at the meeting, Make sure that you have the minimum number of directors...

    I think as RAM was saying Eagle2 , I don't think a member would be liable for the costs and I have put forward that It is important to bear in mind that the award of costs is always at the discretion of the court.

    I stated " including but not limited to making an application for an...

    The agent should never be allowed the freedom to set the budget, it should recommend expenditure but it should never be the one to set it. Otherwise, a substantial part of the expenditure is likely to end up in the hands of that agent and its connected contractors,

    The agent should always...

    As already said, company directors are responsible to manage. If the directors do not table a resolution invited members to vote on a budget (and they would be fools to do so), the members must use a special resolution to force the directors to a different outcome. Unless the articles of the RMC say...
