    I sued my freeholder for failure to maintain my driveway, judge was quite damning but I was only awarded £100 as hard to proof any loss BUT in your case it sounds you have exceptional worry over various incidents so yes you could sue and as I found out it was useful, I got costs too and its something...

    In a block of 24, unfortunately one flat has become dilapidated. The new owner has bought cheaply. She is now demanding the Freeholder pays to refurbish it claiming they have been negligent. Is there a reasonable case ?

    Thanks all. It was a great price, significantly below market value, plus in further negotiations a reduction to pay for any further work. This was identified by a surveyor. She is not clueless.....
    Artful in my research I read that can only claim for her ownership period.
    It is all i...

  • How much can the freeholder charge for registering details of a sublet?
    by Joubert
    I am a director of a Freehold Company of a small block of 28 flats in a popular residential area.

    Over the past few years the majority of flats have been purchased by investors who sublet the flats on ASTs.

    Although the leases between the Freehold Company and the lessees are...

    If a leaseholder can show that internal maintenance is required because of a freeholder's negligence (e.g. a failure to meet external maintenance obligations according to the terms of the lease), they will potentially have a claim against the freeholder and be entitled to expect the freeholder (the...

    The previous owner might have had a case. The new owner I think only for claims for problems during their ownership. But ianal.

    Presumably she got a great price as it was so dilapidated

    What utter nonsense.

    The new buyer should have had a survey before they purchased.

    Many thanks for the prompt and helpful replies. Mainly, I suspect, due to lack of ventilation and heating there is some damp. She says the Freeholder should have stopped this happening by work to outside wall !? Efforts, including engaging surveyors whose advice has been followed, have been made...
