  • How to report a summary offence
    camera
    Hello,

    How do we report a summary offence?

    E.g. if we are not given a copy of our insurance policy after a proper demand and elapsed duration...

    E.g. if our landlord has locked the gas meter and prevented our access in an emergency..

    I'm referring...

    Yes, and if the LA won't act, forget civil injunction. I landed on a 1999 magistrate decision (sadly lost the link) which fined a landlord for failing to provide s21 info to a leaseholder- maybe be other cases- but the Court of Appeal went and spoiled the party in MORSHEAD MANSIONS LTD and MR DI MARCO...

    Im not going to get into a debate about leaseholders. I have apologised as I had no idea that I ended up in that forum. It was an innocent mistake and I still have no idea how I did it!.

    I will of course check before I reply in future...

    To be fair, responding on a long leasehold forum to an OP enquiry that as a landlord you would not provide insurance details (a criminal offence in respect of leaseholder rights) needs to be called out as Andydd said. People lurk.

    Yes, long leaseholders are 'tenants' and not owners (fee...

    I would of thought if no info is provided you could arrange your own (cheaper) insurance on the basis that you couldn't be sure if the building was insured, this isn't easy though, you could also refuse to pay the insurance element But this is also fraught with pitfalls as it's not a legitimate reason...

    The prosecuting authority for failing to provide insurance information is the local housing authority, however I've never heard of any such prosecution: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1985/70/section/34

    You could take it up with the appropriate local councillor.

  • How can I confirm if garages have been sold that once came with a flat?
    pernes
    Hi, I am trying to check what flats have sold their garages, to either other flats in the block who either didn't have one before or have purchased a second one or if someone outside the block now owns any.

    The block has three more flats than garages. Is there a way I can check this out?...

    The valid basis for VAT would be that the garages were being let as commercial property. Most leaseholder law is about residential property. Commercial landlords have an option to opt into VAT.

    Share of the freehold is not legally defined, but in practice it means you, as a leaseholder,...
