    ...and, if f/r and/or mgt co still missing, your solicitor can arrange indemnity insurance on your behalf. Its cost depends on purchase price-

    i. absentee L cover is from £75 (pp up to £100 000) to £350 (pp from £750 000 to £1m); and

    ii. block lack-of-mgt cover is from £165 (pp up to £60 000) to £800 (pp from £750 000 to £1m).

    thanks guys
    Well, someone must own freehold reversion. If no mgt co, start with f/r's identity.

    You yourself cannot alone appoint mgt agent, even once you purchase leasehold, but collective lessees could exercise "right to manage".

  • Share of feehold/shared service charges?
    by Stu1020
    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...

    I suggest that you ask the other 2 leaseholders to explain why they consider that the current allocation is fair. The freeholder has the right to review the allocation from time to time. Unfortunately, a "fair proportion" means that several alternatives would be considered reasonable to a...

    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.
    Following the acquisition date, it was discovered the former directors ignored legal advice and changed property management companies...

    You appear to have a claim against the freeholder, not the individual companies, who are acting as agent for the freeholder. A Tribunal does not have the jurisdiction to deal with monies which should be handed over, it is a matter for the courts,

    by eagle2
    You do not appear to hold sufficient information to make a claim against the freeholder at this stage. I suggest that you apply to the FTT to challenge the charges. You would then be able to ask the Tribunal to direct the freeholder to disclose further information....

  • 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...

  • Reply to S20 - Quotes not valid for long enough for 30 day consult
    by Macromia
    With just two properties involved, and you being a resident, your best option would probably be to agree a time to talk through the proposed work and the need to skip the full 30 days that are supposed to be allowed for each stage of consultation.
    If the other leaseholder has any major concerns,...

    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...

  • Freehold confusion
    by davetg
    30 years ago I bought a flat from a friend. The freehold at the time was registered to my friend and the lady who owned the other flat. I understood at the time that I would replace the friend on the freehold but this never happened. This was not a problem until now as when work on the structure of...
