    Demanding major works service charge then spending it on something else

    The last managing agent made a demand for service charge on account of major works, but did not do the works specified as being the purpose of the demand. They did other things, albeit repairs covenanted to be done by the landlord.

    The tenants are baulking at having another, even higher, demand for doing the works that were originally specified.

    So the question is, if a s20 consultation is gone through for major works, but those works are not done, is the landlord obliged to refund the amounts paid on account of the works, or can he decide not to do the works after all and use the monies on account for other covenanted repairs ?

    It depends on the lease wording and how they were billed, or of they were part of specified exercise in the reserve fund.

    On balance if the other works were needed you would have been billed either way...
    Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.
