  • Q1:
    Your understanding is correct. You also need to provide the freeholder with a copy of the rental contract (you will need to comply with data protection rules so will need the renters permission to pass some details on, and may need to redact some details from the contract).
    You are also...

    What exactly are you suggesting here?

    If you are a leaseholder wanting to somehow use 'money claim online' to get a freeholder to carry out maintenance work, I don't see how that can be made into a money claim.
    The closest you might get to a money claim is if you pay to get work that...

    replied to Understanding a lease
    Regarding the roof space, you would firstly need to look at the lease for the property and look at precisely what that details as the demised property.
    It is possible that the roof space is not included in any of the demised flats (the upper flat may demise, for instance, "the upper levels...

  • If you can convince a court or tribunal that the repairs are only necessary as a result of a botched removal of the staircase by 'FFF', then whose responsibility is in to maintain the roof, and who it is demised to, should become irrelevant.

    If 'FFF' caused the damage through their actions...

  • I didn't see Lawcruncher's reply for some reason before posting - and probably wouldn't have bothered with most of my post if I had!


    This surely depends on whether the intention is to replace the floor or put another layer on top?...

  • Personally I would not have thought that either of the changes that you mention count as "structural", but whether they are allowed by your lease may depend on the exact wording of any clauses that mention alterations.
    If the lease does say that all alterations are prohibited you may...

  • L&TA 1985, section 22(1) specifically says that section 22 applies when a tenant has "..obtained such a summary as is referred to in section 21(1)..."

    This means that the freeholder/managing agent is technically only obliged to provide sight of receipts within a month if the...

  • A "Section 21" request under the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 requires the freeholder to produce a summary of the service charge accounts, containing specific information, within 1 month of the end of the request or 6 months of the end of the accounting period - whichever is the later....

  • It's not just you, I'm finding this difficult to understand as well.

    If 'GFF' did not removal the staircase and has not carried out any other work, building control have no reason to register a charge of unauthorised work against 'GFF' - so either building control are incompetent, or the...

  • So, where I referred to 'freeholder' treat it as referring to freeholder and RMC (the managing agent will seemingly be working under the instruction of both in your case).



    A tribunal would look at what the managing agents say they do, and what they say the caretaker does,...

    You can always ask anyone who you need to pay money to to provide evidence supporting the amount they are asking for!

    The RICS Service Charge Residential Management Code says that it is 'best practice' for managing agents (and freeholders) to be open about costs and to provide access to...

  • The OP doesn't seem to have signed in since September 2020, over 6 months ago, so it's possible that you won't get an answer - you never know though!




    There is no 'argument' as such.

    I don't think that anyone disagrees that it is always preferable (from...

  • Assuming that the council knows that your flat is sublet (most leases contain a clause requiring notification of subletting), I don't see how they can say that it isn't a "lawful requirement" that the lease obligates you to comply with....

    It is true that there is relatively little that you can do to get accounts and/or invoices if the freeholder/managing agent don't want to produce these. Technically it can be an offence, but in reality it is one that is unlikely to be prosecuted.

    Service charge accounts being provided late...
