  • freeholder snuggling to recover arrears
    by Tim_woods
    Hi All,

    I have a leaseholder that constantly refuses to pay service charges and ground rent. I’ve had endless court cases but they are slow and I’ve then struggled to get court fees back which have been added to everyone’s service charges including mine!

    I’ve decided...

    by Jericho
    We (RMC) have a leaseholder with long-standing service charge arrears even after a CCJ for an unpaid money claim agreement.

    The only option left is to go down the Section 146 (Law of Property Act 1925) forfeiture route. Our lease states the leaseholder is liable to pay legal costs arising...

    Illegally? Not sure why this would be illegal but yes I would assume they would add this to his mortgage.

    Unless you have ideas of how to force him to pay without another drawn out court case?...

  • Managing Agents Massively Screwed Up Section 42
    by divadee
    We are the freeholders to a block of flats. We own the freehold in a limited company.

    Apparently one of the flats issued a Section 42 back in April with a date of July for any counter offers.

    Our managing agents have only just told us about this TODAY and we are way out of...

    Do you think the mortgage lender will pay the arrears from their own funds or illegally add the amount to the leaseholder's mortgage balance?...

  • Section 20 process
    by Seluoy2
    I am one of 6 leaseholders in a block of 6 flats. We have had historic issues with the roof, our Community Interest Company changed from one managing agent (with a public history of failings) to another, both have carried out poor repairs in the past.

    Before Christmas the current managing...

    Thanks for the response.

    Answer 1 clarifies that, seems a bit of a loop hole.

    As for 2, they put a scaffold up, did no temporary repair, just left the roof as was with the water ingress remaining for over 2 weeks, that hardly seems an emergency response.

    1. There is no law saying that
    2. It sounds as if that is exactly what they did

  • Newbie Freeholder
    by Anna1985
    Hi all,

    just wonder if somebody can advise as to how to approach the situation.

    Property is in the bad condition, due to previous freeholder having no interest in the property.

    One of the leaseholders decided not to do any property upkeep unless there is a threat...

    Hi, yes we know that we need to send the notification re change of freeholder.
    ​​​​​​

    Yes, that's where the caveat lies - ideally we would like non participating leaseholder to sell.

    But one of co freeholders would like to move sooner (thank you, Chancellor)...
