    Asbestos report

    Can anyone shed any light on why the managing agents would have sent a 1x 75 page Asbestos report which they have asked to be fixed to a wall (any wall in a common area).
    Never been one anywhere in 30 years of the PB blocks history.....would this be a hint at something?
    I haven`t asked them yet , so be good to know, before I ask them, if it is in fact law that this has to be on show.

    I'm interested in this post as we are in a similar position. Curious as to cost.
    My understanding is that people have to be advised before starting work in the building. Not sure just posting it anywhere is sufficient. Insurance certificates must be on show but searching not found anyone saying asbestos reports must.

      Thanks for that,,,,,yes it would make sense in that big works are being started soon. I am not there but it looks like it is a report done years ago that has been taken out of the closet, and posted in each of the 3 blocks.

        If the old report states that you have no asbestos materials in the buildings, it will save paying for another report on health and safety matters..

          I agree. I still think it important to specifically draw their attention to the report. Perhaps even ask them to sign that their attention has been drawn to it.

            Having heard nothing to the contrary, I can only assume that the report showed no hazard. Of course it will be up to anyone working there to avail themselves of it.....odd thing is (to me), if it has to be in place for workers (doing work on doors) what about residents, why is it not visible for them and visitors??

              Unless their attention is drawn to it won't necessarily know it's there.
              Reports such as this, in my view, should automatically be sent to all owners. Perhaps it should be in agents contract.

                like so many things.......as in leaseholders obligations that are completely ignored by tenants of some landlords, because they are not aware

                  The cost of extending a lease is not a service charge expense so there is no reason to allocate it on the 38/31/31 basis, your offer to split those costs equally seems to be reasonable. It is up to the freeholder to decide what is fair and reasonable for the service charges and it is up to the other...

                  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...

                  Unless the handover took place at the end of the financial year, it is the RTM's responsibility to produce the annual accounts. You could try making a formal complaint against the agent to supply copies of all supporting documents, it should belong to a redress scheme. The difficulty is that the agent...

                  Since obtaining the RTM and changing the managing agent, we have never been given full accounts / receipts for the previous year(s). We believe that as the old freeholder and leaser holder of one of the flats were represented by the same solicitor that prior to the sale of the freehold, we were subsidising...

                  30 years ago I bought a flat from a friend. The freehold at the time was registered to my friend and the lady who owned the other flat. I understood at the time that I would replace the friend on the freehold but this never happened. This was not a problem until now as when work on the structure of...

                  davetg,

                  The property should be registered so the land registry should hold a copy of the leases. You would need to look at the leases to see who is responsible for what but normally in a maisonette situation the freeholder would insure and maintain the structure, foundation and roof with...

                  Yeah i guess i would agree with that but, as you say, the value is only to the leaseholders and a freehold subject to 999 years is not worth a great deal of money to anyone other than the occupants and in fact, if the leases are drafted correctly, they should require the leaseholders to become members...

                  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.

                  Flashback1966,

                  I suggest you reply to leaseholder's solicitor and request a copy of the land registry title to confirm the name of new leaseholder plus £15 registration fee.
