    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).

      If there are 50% of the leaseholders as members when the RTM company takes over (as required), then most of those leaseholders sell up and cease to be members, leaving 1 member of the RTM, there is nothing to currently say this is wrong, so the membership level can be anything (of course not zero) after...

      Apologies is this is in the wrong forum section but does anyone know how to go about adding a member (not a director) to a RTM company several years after the company was formed?

      Firstly I fully feel your predicament.

      Based on PAS9980 there will be a risk from the wooden flooring on the balconies since it will be a way for fire to jump the building in the event of a balcony fire, caused by some reckless resident throwing a cigarette off theirs...

      I own a flat in East London which I loved living in. However in July 2019 I had a child and moved in with the misses and rented my flat out on a permission to let.

      Due to the EWS1 scandal I have found myself, like many others, unable to remortgage. My existing lender won't offer any deals...

      There is no requirement to hold the membership register with companies house, it should be maintained at the head office of the RTM and made available for inspection by members.

      All companies limited by guarantee (as well as other types of company) are required to keep a Register of Members...

      Neil M82,

      I suggest you send email enquiry to Companies House asking "how to file new member's details for RTM company ( limited by guarantee )" ?

      Hi Eagle, the model articles do not make it a condition that they pay for the setup costs to become a member, any leaseholder is entitled to become a member.

      There are six, five of which participated in the formation of the RTM company. I've already done exactly what you have suggested & asked them to contribute 1/6 of the original costs & split that equally between the original five leaseholders. I was just wondering if there's anything I need to...

      How many leaseholders are there in total? If a leaseholder did not participate originally and is now seeking to become a member, you should make it a condition that he/she pays a contribution towards the initial costs. You should then credit the 6 leaseholders in the proportion in which they contributed...

      I am struggling to understand why you did not receive the ground rent demands. Did you not collect the mail or make arrangements for mail to be forwarded to you? I agree that you should notify the freeholder or its agent where to send demands and correspondence.

      That aside, you should check...
