    Developer sales office

    Hi
    I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this but here goes.

    I own a freehold house along with circa 130 others in a 2 year old development however there is a communal garden maintenance service fee so there is a residents management company set up with the developer still in control. An EGM hasn't been called by them to handover the company. The developer has sold all the houses now but the sales centre and car park remains. The issue is people park here and its a mess having an empty sales office when we could have either nice greenery or use the building for something meaningful.

    They have no intention to remove the sales building because we suspect they will go back to it if they get planning to build on further land nearby. Their planning apps have been rejected twice so uncertain if they'll be back.

    What are the residents company members rights here? Could we force the developer to remove the sales building and turf the carpark spaces which the plans show or could we as residents repurpose it? If we get an EGM to happen and take over the company, could we force them to demolish it and returf? Or if we decide to repurpose it to hold cctv systems, store garden maintenance equipment or use it as a community room could the developer still have a right to it?

    Surely the sales office and car park is in the ownership of the developer? Check at the Land Registry. You can't enforce what they do with their own land should they choose to leave it empty. Sounds from your description that it maybe a 'ransom strip'.

      This might take a while, you may want to grab a cup of tea!
      Ill try to condense things. A friend persuaded us to sell part of our garden upon which he obtained permission and built a house. After failing to sell the house, his son now lives there. I started noticing that along the boundary wall,...

      I made a complaint to the ombudsman which was successful. My council was really annoyed as they had refused to show me a copy of a document and the Ombudsman forced them to send her a copy which she forwarded to me.

    • 5 Year Private Property Licence Ended After One Year
      by AKRS
      Hi All, I could really use some guidance in a matter relating to the above. We were told by our agency handling our property that we needed to obtain a licence through the council. I did my research and asked all the relevant questions and found out that the licence will cost 650 for five years. Sounds...

      In this case I would ask a Chartered Town Planner, Don't contact the council apart from looking on their Planning Portal

      I am wondering if anyone can answer my question please?

      There is a plot for sale in my area that has planning permission granted on it. The thing is, this was granted when the site was larger than it now is as the vendor has fenced a section of it off and built himself a log cabin style...

      The plans provided with the planning application will show the position and size of the house granted planning permission, as well as showing the extent of the land identified on the site plan.

      The planning permission would have taken into account the area available for garden, and parking...

      Hi Tipper. It was granted for one dwelling but vendor has since built the cabin and fenced off the plot he is selling saying it has planning. But the planning was granted for the original whole site before he built his cabin that he lives in .

      It probably depends on what the permission was for and how many dwellings, etc.
      Also when pp was achieved as they run out after 3 years in most if not all cases.

      You can check on the local planning online to see the details, drawings, dates, etc.

      Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but what are the circumstances to obtain a Buildings Regulations Certificate? For example building a house, an extension, fitting a new boiler, installing a new light fitting, replacing a light bulb etc?
