    Not sure how this Clause will work post RTM

    Is an audit still required? If so, can the account be audited by the Leaseholders chosen auditors?

    It must be an older type of lease, more modern leases do not refer to an audit. In modern day language, it means that the service charge accounts should be reviewed by an independent accountant.

    The RTM Company must comply with the lease and it may choose the accountant.

      The service charge account holds money contributed by leaseholders who should be given an annual summary of income and expenditure for the year. Auditing by qualified accountant is a requirement if there are more than 4 leaseholders in the block of flats.

      But in larger block of flats, auditing should be required especially if the service charge account is controlled by a managing agent appointed by an external company .

        ok yes the meaning of audit is different now to what was meant when these leases were first drawn up in the 1970's. So just normal accountant. Thanks for your help.

          Do you have insurance for the contents? Maybe there is loss of rent cover included there.

          The flat I rent out has suffered from recurrent leaks from upstairs since I purchased it, 4 leaks in 4 years. It's caused me to lose one tenant already. I feel like there is no incentive for the owner upstairs to sort the problem (check the plumbing etc) as the cost is always covered by insurance and...

          This is the important question, what are the reasons for non payment?

          Have demands been correctly served including the correct summaries of rights and obligations?

          Are the landlord obligations under the lease being carried out?

          Have service charge end of year accounts...

          Hello, I am new here so please excuse me if this question has already been asked, but a search has drawn a blank.

          I am a director of an RTM of a property with 25 flats. I would be very grateful if anyone here can advise whether a resident who is more than six months in arrears with his...

          Is there a restrictive covenant in the title of the commercial-property owner (CPO) giving you and the other lessee a right of way over the land?

          Is the CPO a freeholder or leaseholder of the land?

          With regard to the point related to '20 years' you are referring to adverse...

          The RTM can make a money claim online but as this enquiry concerns service charges the lessee will have the right to have the service charges determined unless already agreed. Depending upon the lessee's response to the claim, the County Court may refer the claim to the FTT.

          What are the...

          Thanks for your response.

          All costs are being covered by the management company. So currently I'm not actually losing out so I'm not really sure what I'm claiming for! More just the stress of it all. And the potential loss of earning and making unrentable/saleable as you say. Yes the floor...
