  • Service charges according to floorspace vs lease stipulation
    by Santa Fe
    Hello. I own a flat in a block of four. The new owner of the smallest flat is disputing their contribution to service charges based on floor size. All four flats have historically paid 25% each, but of the four leases only mine states that I pay 25%. I have spoken with a solicitor about this and he...

    by Section20z
    It's a nonsense, been hearing this for years from ground floor residents who don't want to pay for lift, top floor people not wanting to pay for rising damp treatment and non drivers not wanting to pay for car park etc etc etc
    Never yet had one get it changed by a court.
    A small basement...

    by Lawcruncher
    Whether the complaining owner goes to a tribunal or a court, I think that on any assessment a basement bedsit paying the same as a two bedroom flat is not "fair and reasonable". You do not really want to be getting into tribunals or the like. I suggest you propose that the two bedroom flats...

  • Reply to AGM cancelled.
    by Andrea Cunningham
    Call an EGM. Make sure you give proper notice and that it is legal (download a boilerplate notice off the internet). In that EGM you can vote new directors in, or even vote the old directors out.

  • AGM cancelled.
    by Grumio
    Is this legal?

    A bit of background, we currently have three directors, we are allowed to have up to a maximum of eight directors according to the articles of association. We are all leaseholders. Last summer the three directors decided to hire a managing agent who is now in charge of the...

    by SouthernDave
    Has anyone had dealing with doubling ground rents?

    I live in the upper flat of a maisonette, I have a right of way that goes around the back of the building from the side entrance, there are only two flats in the building.

    This is the ROW as it is in the land registry.


    Can I ask another question?

    As you can read it says Boundary determined by edge of pavings. Before the other party moved out they built a fence along the boundary though they build it on my side of the...

  • Reply to Enfranchising from a company I'm already a member of.
    by Andrea Cunningham
    As I said right at the beginning, there are some very sound reasons to do this which I wasn't going to go into. Suffice it to say that the current situation is one where the building I live in suffers under the tyranny of the majority of the larger building. So what is being sought is genuine control...

  • Enfranchising from a company I'm already a member of.
    by Andrea Cunningham
    The estate I live on has 2 blocks. All the leaseholders are members of the company which owns the freehold and manages the block ("Share of freehold").

    Suppose one of the 2 blocks decides to go it alone - so in other words gain the freehold from a company they are already a member...
