  • Repair obligation on water supply to flat
    by wouldbebuyer2
    Hi. There is a jammed stop cock which needs replacing. It is external to the flat ie in a communal area but serves the flat exclusively. The managing agents say it is the lessees responsibly. I've attached a couple of the relevant excerpts from the lease. Can anyone confirm who is responsible for maintaining...

    The block supply would only need cut off for a very short time whilst the outer stopcock is replaced. The internal one could then be replaced at leisure. Not a difficult or expensive job.

    Much preferable to make a definite stop to the supply with the block shutoff than to freeze which...

    No, freezing kit is correct, using a blow torch will melt the rubber seal on the spindle and you will be in trouble then.
    if the incoming pipe is plastic then a plumber can clamp it off and replace the stop cock in a jiffy.
    if it's copper then a freezing kit basically turns the water in...

    Yes indeed it is.

    I presume by freezing kit you mean freeing kit? I haven't heard of such a thing but thought that there was a method with wd40, time and a blow torch which could be used to unstick them....

    Thanks for your comprehensive response Macromia.

    ​​​​​ Your views on the lease resonate with my own.

    I am of the opinion that the intention when the lease was written was to make the individual flat owners responsible for all of the items listed as being the freeholder's...

    Good argument for regularly testing your stopcocks and never ever leave them fully open.
    A decent plumber ought to be able to free up or replace the internal one with a freezing kit.

    Yes. There is a stop cock inside the flat and another stop cock in the communal area which exclusively serves the flat. Both are jammed and need replacing.
    This actually makes it a more onerous task to replace as the whole block needs to have is supply cut off with notice given etc in order to...

  • Reply to plethora of directors breaches in RMC
    by Gordon999
    All directors should be given the same information and given advanced notice to attend the directors meetings.

    You should make a complaint to Investigation Companies House if you suspect the the £9000 "directors loan" was added after the annual accounts was signed off by...

  • plethora of directors breaches in RMC
    by JackBluebird
    Struggling with how to proceed,

    Company is building of 6 flats converted from a house about 25 years ago. Each leaseholder is a member, and currently each member is a director.

    The management of the building has been going downhill and we suspect that 4/6 directors have essentially...
