  • Reply to Increased service charge when let/unoccupied
    by Macromia
    Unless the lease makes it clear that this "reasonable proportion" only applies to the service charges as a whole, it could be argued that flats with non-resident leaseholders could be charged a higher proportion of the managing agents fees - but only if they can justify this as reasonable,...

  • Increased service charge when let/unoccupied
    by eshroom
    My mum has had her flat let out for some time, it is currently unoccupied and given COVID shall remain so for a few months.

    The service charge was £20 per month more for her as it was rented. She wasn't happy but went along with it. She asked to have it dropped now that it is not rented...

  • Reply to Rent Act restricting ground rent
    by Macromia
    So, presumably, the part of the clause that you have not quoted allows the ground rent at each new assignment to be set as a percentage of the sale price?

    This seems backwards to me (unless there is a more complicated formula used), because it means that the higher the sale price, the higher...

  • Rent Act restricting ground rent
    by Section20z
    One of my ground rent leases has a mechanism for the rent to rise on any assignment "......provided that such rent shall never exceed the amount which would bring this lease within the provisions of the Rent Act 1968 or any Act amending or re-enacting the same"
    The rent should be £650pa...

    by eshroom
    The lease does indeed say charges should be split according to a "reasonable proportion" decided by managing agent or accountant in case of dispute.

    It does allow for a "reasonable fee to compensate time spent" for each sub-lease that has to be sent to the freeholder....

  • Reply to Damp issues on basement - 1995 conversion
    by eshroom
    Thanks for the replies.

    Part of the damp (rising) has been identified as a faulty DPC. Part has been identified as failed tanking causing penetrative damp (earth on other side of wall). I don't know who put the tanking in, but as the coal store was converted by the freeholder in 1995, I...

  • Damp issues on basement - 1995 conversion
    by eshroom
    We have failed tanking causing penetrative damp on my mum's small basement flat, converted from coal store.

    Freehold company claim tanking is an improvement and they have no record of ever having done the work, hence they say they are not responsible and won't be paying for the work....

    Tanking could be argued needs to be put in place to stop the external water coming in from the exterior walls which is partly the freeholder responsibility otherwise flat unfit for habitation act as not watertight....

    eshroom,

    Who put the tanking in? Normally you are responsible for the internal demise meaning plaster up to the brickwork. Where is damp coming from? Rising an or penetrative damp or both? You could argue that the damp is a structural issue, does your building have an existing DPC? check...

    In normal times I would agree with you ram, but these are not normal times.
