    All lessees should have the same rights irrespective of whether resident or not, subject to the company's Memo/Articles.
    Anyway, they all have the same statutory rights.

      Hi LZ Community

      Just wondering if anyone's had/having any issues with S20 and allowing leaseholder 30 days to review estimates, raise concerns etc.

      Building material prices have fluctuated massively since covid and brexit.
      with a combination of Brexit, impact from russia/ukraine...

      Thanks Macromia, I'm hoping not to have to request quotes to include extra 'contingency' as I know some building materials literally jumped by up to 80% pretty much overnight and so I / we could end up paying a hell of a lot more than we have to go with a 'protective' quote.

      It's only me...

      RTM handing over issues

      Our RTM companies comprise 4 blocks of 6 identical two bedroom flats and each block is registered at Companies House as a separate company.

    • 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...

      You could show the last service charge demanded by previous managing agent . There should be a final summary of the service charge show the unspent funds.

    • Building works & S20 process
      by RichA
      Hi. I have a freehold after selling a leasehold flat in a block of 4 flats. We don't currently have a managing agent, so these duties currently fall to me (I am holding off appointing a managing agent whilst the leaseholders consider whether they want to RTM).

      The block needs some maintenance...

      Good questions.
      The fact that the cost of work means that Section 20 consultation is required doesn't necessarily mean that it is major work that will require a project manager and, although most leases will contain clauses that allow the cost of project management to be recovered from leaseholders,...
