      What utter nonsense.

      In a block of 24, unfortunately one flat has become dilapidated. The new owner has bought cheaply. She is now demanding the Freeholder pays to refurbish it claiming they have been negligent. Is there a reasonable case ?

      Usually inside the flat, the re-decoration is paid by the leaseholder of the flat.

      In the communal areas , the maintenance work is paid by the service charge account , paid by all flats in the building .

      Okay, time for an update, it's a while since something happened....

      Although we kept being assured since April (the deadline given for settlement was 1 April), that there was a 'buyer', none actually materialised, so we pressed on with the forfeiture action. The application review hearing...
