    Legal Representation Sought - RTE and Conveyencing


    Further to my first post...

    I wonder if anyone can recommend a good Solicitor who would be able to assist with the mess of the FH serving CN with counter proposals including price and acknowledging the RTE and now... saying that the IN was in fact invalid thus scuppering the LVT that had been set.

    Also assuming we can make some progress then to do the conveyencing required.

    Sadly after further research it seems that the FH and their Solicitor are in the habit of these tactics to prolong the process and generate additional costs, something they had their wrists slapped for in February. So previous knowledge of dealing with SGIK Ltd and P.Chevalier or other obstructive FH's is required! As the problem we have is that the company who prepared the IN on reviewing the CN were happy that the CN stated an intention to sell the FH and didn't pick up this as a problem, because they're not used to dealing with FHs who exploit niche areas of the law to inflate their fees.



    Much too vague. Please state whether you are proceeding under 1987 Act (re-active) of 1993 Act (pro-active).

      So the lease allows for the property to be kept in good condition.
      Thus, the shared hall could be spruced up no problem, but there is an issue with driveway - partially it belongs to the freeholder, partially to the ground floor leaseholder - it is made out of the old paving stones, it looks...

      In addition to the notices sometime the lease may require a deed of covenant and therefore you may need to prepare a deed of Covenant

      If there are any arrears these must be settled on completion...

      What does the lease say?

      You do not need confirmation from Mrs B.

      by Flashback1966
      The other flats are demanding I pay 38% of costs to extend leases when the freehold itself, a very comparable legal procedure, was calculated on an equal third share.

      Confused. Did you extend the lease or buy the Frehold?

      In my opinion, if the Freehold was purchased, it should...

      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...

      If the review is just between 2 flats, calling a meeting with upstairs leaseholder , to review quotations and decide which one to accept will be quicker than waiting for 30 days. With inflation around 10% p.a , the parties at the meeting could choose to accept a quotation at 2.5% higher than a...

      by jazzythumper
      Does it matter that it has been more than six months since the RTM took control? Does it matter than the freeholder who I would like to see these accounts from sold the freehold more than 6months ago? Is there a standard template or form I could use to write to the previous freeholder?

    • Old managing agents accounts
      by jazzythumper
      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...
