    What do you mean by "a reasonable unlift"?

    You can only pass charges of any sort on to leaseholders if the lease (or in rare cases, legislation) allows for this.

  • Look at the 2013 Supreme Court case of Daejan Investments Ltd versus Benson.

    Dispensation for not carrying out section 20 consultation properly still technically needs to be granted, but the decision effectively means that any reduction in costs will only be to the amount that the leaseholds...

    I see no reason why a meeting of four resident shareholder shouldn't be in one of their homes, and no reason why refreshment shouldn't include alcoholic drinks (assuming that everyone present was sober).
    Have you raised objections and suggested a viable alternative venue?

    Regarding...

  • What can be charged for ground rent, and when it can be increased, with depend on the wording in all relevant parts of your lease.
    You would need to post the exact wording used in the lease in order for anyone to have any chance of giving you reliable advice (and after receiving advice will likely...

    replied to Share of freehold disputes
    If the freehold is owned by a company you will need to check what is said in the company articles and in any existing regulations that have previously been correctly passed in accordance with the articles and any other applicable rules.

    I would personally expect that, if 75% of shareholders...

    replied to Service charge?
    What does the lease say? And what do the previously existing leases say?
    I would think that this is something that should have been considered before the land was leased and included in the lease.

    If the lease does not say that any contribution to 'estate management' needs to be paid,...

  • Regarding the management company who are apparently not members of an approved redress scheme, I would definitely suggest that they should be reported to the local council (and if no action is taken, take this up with your local councillor and MP).

  • Where RTM companies are involved there is very little you can do to change the way a block is managed if you are not able to get support from a majority of the RTM shareholders.
    If you are able to get majority support (which will usually require you to be more convincing than the existing directors,...

    replied to RTM to Management Company
    It doesn't sound like you have all the relevant information that you need.

    You need to know more about the RTM company (who the members and directors are, what the Articles say, etc. and who the freeholder is - Land Registry should be able to provide the last bit of information).

    Perhaps, but I doubt that there will be any significant change.
    It's likely that more goods from other parts of the world will come directly from other parts of the world, rather than via Europe, but we already receive goods from all over the world and it is unlikely that there will be a huge...

    replied to Brexit
    Dover and Folkestone will continue to be the busiest ferry ports because it is the shortest crossing to the continent, and therefore the cheapest crossing. That isn't going to change.
    Other ferry crossings are already available, if there was more demand for these crossings there would already...

  • 'Typical' mananagement fees vary considerably, depending on factors such as how many units in the block (higher cost per unit for smaller blocks) and what services the agent is going to provide. If the agent is going to charge 10% for all work I would not expect to pay ┬ú200 as well.

    For...

  • Are the demands for service charge payments usually sent by email? If not, and this is the first time, did the 'family member' agree to receiving the demands this way?
    Were the demands correct, containing all of the required information (including freeholders details and correct form of tenants...

  • Unfortunately, there is no doubt at all that Sophiejo is not fully aware of the position she finds her self in - although several contributors have tried to correct most of her many misunderstandings.

    I srongly disagree with the assertion that the advice that has been given in this thread,...
