    Part of Major Works Missed off s20

    Hello everyone. We recently had a full refurbishment of the common parts of our building of 50 apartments at a cost of almost £500k. It was agreed that the communal entrance door would be replaced as part of the refurb but this part was left off the s20 notice at the behest of the RTM Co and is being billed as part of the annual service charge. The doors and frames, solid oak costing £10,000, have been a contentious issue because of the omission from the scrutiny the s20 process affords. Considering that replacing the doors has always been on the major works agenda and was included in preliminary works schedules going back years, is it reasonable to charge them on the annual s/charge as a separate project?
    thanks in advance for any advice.

    It was an expensive door.

    When you say, "it was agreed ... " who agreed and how was it agreed?

    Subject to your reply, there seems to be no reason why the RTM Company could not decide that it was a separate item. You still have the right to challenge the reasonableness of the charge but it is not recommended that you take action effectively against yourselves. You may prefer to consider who is acting as directors of the RTM Company and whether or not they should be removed.

    If you read other threads, you will see that s20 is weak legislation and the RTM Company could have avoided s20 completely and applied for dispensation,

      Simples, 10000k:50= 200 so they don't need to consult for this as part of s20
