  • Why would managing agent use S20 dispensation?
    by Flashback1966
    Have a flat in a block. The communal area is in very poor condition. Lighting not working for 15 years. Carpets worn out and threadbare. You can see the floorboard in places. Electrical cupboard door falling off.... Some residents leaving furniture in hallway.

    The managing agents applied...

    The reason should have been explained to you when the application was made and you should have had the opportunity to challenge the application. The Tribunal would have considered if there was any prejudice to the leaseholders and should have made any appropriate comments within its decision.

  • Reply to Are stopcocks responsibility of Lessee or Lessor
    by nukecad
    You have a point, most of the cost for a small job like that is the plumbers call out charge, so it makes sense to only have the one call out.

    If it's just seized up then there are things you can try, it may sound odd but one of them is tightening the top nut and then slackening it again....

  • Are stopcocks responsibility of Lessee or Lessor
    by NaomiB
    Our flats were built in 1962. Some of the stopcocks are now seized up. Originally, the water came into the building and there was a stopcock for each flat in the cupboard in the communal area. It may confuse things a bit now because we have water meters for each flat outside. However, I wanted to...

    It does make a difference if I have to pay, say, £130 for just my one whereas all nine could be done for not a lot more. I've passed it over to the residents' association to decide whether they want to go ahead or not. I'll spray mine with WD40 tomorrow!...

    Whether it is paid out of service charge or by individual flat owner, it still comes out the same pocket!.

    However, given that you plan to sell you flat, the last thing you want is an uncontrolled water leak damaging your flat.

    it is better to get a job done at once. ...

  • Reply to Isn't there any obligation to be insured?
    by Flashback1966
    If there is a leak from the flat above, then you need to claim on your insurance. I know it sounds unfair, but that is how it works. The upper flat is responsible for fixing the leak. Ideally the entire building should be under one insurance policy, but sometimes, people insure separately....

  • Isn't there any obligation to be insured?
    by Sarah17
    Hi All,
    I recently bought a flat and learned since that the flat above is a regulated tenancy. The current tenant has moved in 1972. The flat is in a very shabby state, and I am worried about it (safety concerns, fire risk...etc). I wrote to the landlord and didn't receive any answer yet. A few...
