  • 'Reasonable' ground rent collection charge?
    by Benzo
    Hi guys

    We recently achieved RTM from our underperforming managing agents. We no longer pay our service charge to them. However our old managing agents still represent the freeholder, and so we still pay our ground rent to him via the old managing agents.

    Following RTM, they've...

  • Flat Roof used as fire escape and right of way
    by RichardCardiff
    I am the Freeholder of a property and the property has an single story extension which has a flat roof. The lease holder of the flat above had the lease amended before I purchased it so that he has the right of use of the flat roof. I converted the ground floor of the property and added a basement....

  • Reply to Flat Roof used as fire escape and right of way
    by scot22
    I am always ready to reposition myself.
    it is not that they want to develop the roof in any way. Crossing it provides their only fire escape and, naturally want to preserve it.

    If OP sticks it out to court I suspect it will cost quite a few thousand.

    Imagine a fire and...

    by Freeholder is king
    Scott22 and i differ in what the rights are. If the top flat has a deed of variation to use the flat roof and it is unlikely they will get planning permission IF they applied for it. I would say that the freeholder could put skylights in the roof as the top flat have never used the roof or am i missing...

    by Section20z
    Charging a percentage in your case would be unreasonable as some lessees would be paying more for exactly the same service
    You stated the lease clause as being "the fees of the Lessor’s Managing Agents for the collection of the rents of the Flats in the Building AND for the general management...

  • Face to face AGM arranged?
    by Sandy1986
    We have been contacted today by our management company to say they are holding a face to face AGM in our car park on Wednesday evening with social distancing. This would be around 15 people minimum. As the current regulations are no more than 6 people would this apply to an AGM in these circumstances...

    by scot22
    You are right. I just find things confusing !

    My big concern would be the lack of notice. I am reasonably sure that no AoA would allow this.

  • Reply to Face to face AGM arranged?
    by jpkeates
    The meeting would be allowed if it was for "work purposes", but it wouldn't be "work" for anyone other than the management committee.
    "Business" or "Commercial" aren't exceptions....

    Thanks Lawcruncher, I suggested 10% plus VAT so I'm glad to see we're in a similar place on this.

    You're exactly right on the formal vs informal - the informal extensions by standard for this freeholder are extending the lease to 99 years (not by 99 years) and adding clauses about ground...
