  • power of newly formed residents association?

    just in the process of forming a residement compents comittee in a private block of flats.
    some renters but some owners in order to tackle a problematic landlord/managemant.
    we are forming to solve various issues mainly maintenance that never gets completed satisfactoraly, to building security which doesnt seem to be taken seriously
    from speaking to longer residents the landlords is very untrustworthy and gives various cock and bull stories to different tennants at different times.
    i wonder what power we have to reinforce requirements and make sure they are completed.
    a good example is the comunal bikestore was broke into last week and bikes stolen.. not only did he not inform any residents,nor police. he only made a piecemeal attempt to fix the door that that they gained access from. it is still unsecure in our eyes
    what power /recourse do we have to make sure work is done and taken seriously? could we carry out work ourselves and charge him..with hold rent / maintenance payments????

    thanks

      Makes sense - if the tenancy agreement doesn't say you have to let him and a surveyor in, his only right of access is with 24 hours written notice for the purpose of viewing the "condition and state of repair" of the property.

      So you can simply decline or make your point.

      I'm not trying to claim for breach of quiet enjoyment. He wants to be in again with a surveyor to use his property as security for something. I am going to let him I just want to remind him and have all the facts. Sorry if I didn't explain it right.

      Only claiming for the non protection...

      I pay the council tax, yes it is mortgaged. As far as I know he isn't pretending to live him and his family live in another house a few streets away....

    • HMO under Commercial Lease & homeowner wants to sell

      Long story short, someone I know (not close) needed money, I gave him 12 months reduced rent upfront to help him out and put a commercial lease on his HMo with right to sublet etc (my tenants).

      Few months in and his money problems are worse and the bank (and others) pressuring him to sell...

      Harassment is way more than a breach of quiet enjoyment, there has to be a level of distress in the harassed person.

      A retrospective claim for breach of quiet enjoyment is probably a non-starter - breach of quiet enjoyment is part of the kitchen sink people throw when they're claiming compensation...

      And although as jpkeates suggests you have a right to turn them away and force a court order, this does not mean they have breached your right to quiet enjoyment.

      It means you are refusing to honour your AST and the landlord Is forced to apply to court to make you legally comply. Again,...

      Many thanks for the reply. Yes, my company has leased the HMO in question under commercial lease but it's not registered at land registry as it's only a 12 month lease.

      Tenants are friends so less of am issue as such but they'll be outside of their 6 months by the time of any would be...
