    TV Aerial damaged my satellite dish

    I own a 1 bed flat which is situated in converted house with 6 flats.

    each flat has the right to install a tv aerial / satellite dish on the roof. My signal stopped and when I checked I found a TV Aerials had broken away from the wall and damaged my dish. I contacted the managing agent and they said it is not there responsibility as there is no communal aerial. I informed them that since they granted to right to a non communal area that had to be responsibly, and I demanded the costs to repair, they also refused to confirm who owned the tv aerial. Can anyone confirm who is responsible for the repairs costs?

      If a neighbour parks in a communal car park and their call rolls into your neighbour fault, so I think it’s the owner of aerials thought.

        Are cars and aerials/dishes analogous? Is your question in a coded format?

          I suspect you may be onto something, if the freeholder/agent gave their permission for anything to be afixed to THEIR property then i think they do have a duty of care to ensure it is fixed correctly, what if it fell off the roof and killed someone ? Then what ....... the flat owner, the aerial fitter... the freeholder.....

          They do have some responsibility i feel due to, as you say, giving permission, if they wanted to stay litigation free they should have provided a communal aerial and banned anyone else from fitting one, if it happened then, the individual who fitted it would be liable. Maybe wrong but i think that makes sense.

            This is a very usual arrangement where the freeholder pockets all the gains, i.e., ground rent and insurance (possibly including a large commission) and the RMC is responsible for managing all the repair and maintenance obligations (either by self managing or appointing a managing agent).

            I am a Director of an RMC and the Freeholder insists it is their right to arrange the insurance. Have I the same right as an RTM to take over the arrangement of insurance?

            If the total gains are below the Annual Exemption and total proceeds does not exceed four times the Annual Exemption, you are not required to report the matter to HMRC

            However, as I suspected the company held the freehold in trust for you, you should have reported the ground rent income...

            Hi, I hope I can write this in a clear way that makes sense!

            We bought a leaseholders flat in 2016, the next year we bought the limited company that held the freehold. This was done as no other leaseholder were interested in buying the freehold a few months prior to us buying our leasehold...

            You have said exactly what the accountants said to us today. Basically the freehold was never added to the limited company as an asset (before we bought it) and as such it would just be cgt that was due and as its only 8k no cgt is due. They said not to bother with a return for it. We are having the...

            Many thanks for your responses.

            I did deal with the query. It just seemed excessive to ask me to get involved.

            Thanks again for the information about meters.

            I manage a property with four flats. The landlord owns the freehold for the flats and is also the leaseholder for the two downstairs flats.

            The leasehold of the two upstairs flats is owned by someone else who employs a managing agent. The managing agent has contacted me about an issue...

            It is.

            On reflection the covenant may not be enforceable as it is a covenant by the tenant with the landlord. It will only be enforceable if your lease gives you the right to require the landlord to enforce the covenants in the other lease. That will though lead to a bit of a conundrum...
