  • It is difficult for me to do that because it states in the lease that I am not allowed to withhold service charge monies.

    I am still waiting for details of when the works will start although we had a meeting a few weeks ago to agree on which MA to use, but still nothing on when the building...

  • They are getting on with it now but they are taking their time. We are appointing a Managing Agent, but still do not have a company to carry out the work. However as someone has said above I will with hold that part of my share that I have paid out on having to have the flat tanked, plastered and then...

  • You are right, they have all ganged up on me and that is because the owner of the next door encourages it. He owns it but lets it out and we had a disagreement and since then he has done everything he can to make life awkward for me, even though he has done some awful things and in reality as he was...

    They are under an obligation to repair, it states so in the lease. I agree though taking it from the service charge would not be a good idea. I would have to not pay the full sum owed for all the works. Yes I will ring the Leasehold advisory service and ask them but I am certain...

  • eagle2,

    Thank you for that Yes I agree, they could have got a loan. I am certain that since there are two of them £10k loan each should not be any hardship or but it on their cards. I have already told them I am going to charge them for the work I have had to have done to stop water coming...

    The Leaseholders own the Freehold. We set up a company but the people running it are not up to scratch it is not their flats which are affected. Just the two at the bottom and one over me has water coming in through the render in a very small area and she wanted to wait to safe...

  • eagle2,

    We all own the freehold. We are a company but one of the Leaseholders wanted a year to save up the money instead of getting a loan, so the others went along with that. I could not wait as I have a tenant in it and water was coming in everywhere, naturally it was not there flat which...

    Yes they do. We have had that here putting in a new lease. The properties though are commonhold, a lot different from Freehold. A much better system altogether.

    They are in a position. One is worth a god few million, one is a well known artist, the others are all in well paid jobs and there are two of them whilst there is only one of me!

    No there is no allowance for a reserve fund. However I have always put away a few 100 a month just in case of any disaster. The other leasses are all high earners, they will not have a problem rustling up the money. If they had got on with it in 2011 it would have been a lot cheaper,...

    Yes I have had the flat for 30 years, it it was in 2011 that the problems of penetrating damp became known, but the people in charge at the time chose to ignore it. I even got in my own surveyor but they were immune to what he said. Finally I insisted on a surveyor checking...

  • Stacker,

    There is nothing in the lease in respect of emergency repairs.

  • We are all paying £20,000 in to the kitty when the work gets going. No freeholder can rustle up £100,000. How could I let water come into my flat because the outside render is cracked and falling apart. No the lease does not allow for improvements. The water is coming in through the render because...

    started a topic Freeholders breach of the lease

    Freeholders breach of the lease

    We had a surveyor in last year in April 2018 which said that the outside render was now porous and needed to be repaired as a matter of urgency and should be a priority. At a meeting they voted to wait for a year until people had saved up the money and also they needed to have an asbestos test done....
