  • Flat entrance door - fire door compliance
    by MrSoffit
    Hi. Inspecting flat entrance doors has been a requirement since the 2005 Fire safety Order. The role of managing agents to inspect front doors is covered in appendices to the 2011 guidelines.

    Should a managing agent have in-house expertise to carry out door inspections (required by an...

    by jrsteeve
    Best practice is for the agent to appoint an external contractor to conduct an FRA and formal risk assessments. Checking for obvious damage to apartment doors would be completed during a standard site inspection by the agent. Any significant damage should then be followed up by a contractor assessment...

  • Handing back Right to Manage to Freeholder
    by carolebrntt
    An RTM was set up in 2005 of which I have been a Director ever since, and dealt with all the buildings requirements.
    Including Insurance, maintenance and getting documents sent to Companies House. I’m now 73 and wish to sell my flat and move on, as the responsibility is now affecting my health....

  • Reply to External wall surveys - S20
    by Samish
    We are going to make an application to dispense under S20ZA out of caution, however I don't personally feel that it should be classed as 'works'. It is an inspection by a qualified individual. If an asbestos survey exceeded the S20 threshold, or a fire risk assessment, you might challenge the cost on...

  • External wall surveys - S20
    by Samish
    Hi there, sorry if this has been covered before but I was hoping to get peoples view on costs for external wall surveys and whether they are qualifying works under S20? Colleagues of mine think that we need to go through S20 consultation, however I'm of the opinion that, while expensive and invasive,...

  • How easy/difficult is it to set up a freehold management service?
    by riva
    I live in a share of freehold (block of 5 flats) and we are currently paying around 6k per flat for management/bills per annum. No concierge but there's a lift. It's an external management company that we outsource to. Thing is, I feel that they were coming up with rather expensive quotes and so I've...

    by eagle2
    We need some more information please. Are the leases directly between the freeholder and the leaseholders or is there an RMC involved?
    A block of 5 flats can probably be managed by the leaseholders themselves, especially if you are all contributing and you all get along well. The problem is when...

  • ICO Data protection fee
    by parklands
    I have received a letter from ICO informing me that we need to pay a fee. Our managing agent says we must decide if we want to pay and offers no advice. Do other RMCs pay this?

    There is a registration self assessment on the ICO web site. I suggest that you complete it and keep a copy if it states that you do not need to pay a registration fee....
