    A single survey doesn't alter the fact that almost al surveys have found that the balance is now tipped the other way (and for a population of 66 million, a sample size of 26,000 really isn't a great deal better than a sample size of 1,000 - the difference is only a confidence interval of a couple of...

    Does your lease mention the property management company, and if so, is this in connection to the block, the estate, or both?
    Do you pay service charges towards the management of the estate in addition to costs for the management of the block?

    If you buy the freehold (presumably as...

    Nope.

    The claim that the UK could save £350 million a week and use that to fund the NHS was never true.
    The £350 million a week claim doesn't take into account the 'rebate' that the UK gets that was negotiated by Margaret Thatcher. This 'rebate' is applied before any payments are...

    Indeed - but ploughing a message like this in a field would be easier than faking the photos of the finished article and the videos showing it being done....

    It only looks "so neat" in photos taken from a distance, which make the slight irregularities unnoticeable.

    Actually ploughing this into the field probably took very little time. the only time consuming part would have been planning, and marking out where the plough would 'cut'...

  • As leaseholder64 has said, this depends on the terms of the lease (which might not actually allow for a reserve fund in the first place).

    My lease does not have any clause that allows for a reserve fund to be collected, but specifically states that any excess is to be carried over to the...

  • It is a reasonable motivation, but the OP does not seem to have gone about this in the correct way. If the OP's lease does not allow them to park in the visitor bays, they should not be doing so under any circumstances without prior permission.
    If they had asked for permission first, or had used...

  • Permission to assign a lease is often not required (my own lease is one example), but where permission is not required there will usually be a requirement for the freeholder, or their managing agent, to be informed that the lease has been assigned within a specified time of it happening.

    replied to Liability for costs?
    That's not necessarily true.
    Although it might be considered an unusual arrangement, it is possible for there to be a situation where some, or all, of the other leaseholders are responsible for the maintenance of the roof.
    There could, for instance, be a situation where the top floor flat...

    Who is responsible for contributing to the cost of roof repairs (and any other repairs/maintenance/service costs) will depend on precisely what it says in your lease, and the leases of the other properties in the block.
    There are four main options:
    1. You are required to contribute towards...

    People like YOU are saying that all rising ground rents are a problem - or at least, that is the impression that you are giving the general public (including lenders and buyers) when you say things like you have in this thread:

    Do you think that the building site and bus driver jobs that you mention weren't previously available to "indigenous people"?
    All jobs that have been 'taken' by immigrants from the EU have been available to people who were born in the UK - if they were prepared to take them....

    Except, as has been pointed out by others above, it really isn't the problem that it is made out to be in many cases.
    In the OP's case, a ground rent that doubles ever 33 years will almost certainly not keep up with inflation (in the last 30 years costs have more than doubled, and in previous...

  • I don't see how this would help.
    If the directors of the PMC are unwilling to allow the OP to park in a visitors spot while he/she is affected by a temporarily physical problem, is it really likely that they would agree to allow them to use a the parking spot if it was specifically set aside for...

    I'm for a future where the Uk's government, and the voting public in the UK, can directly influence our future and we retain as many freedoms as possible and have the best possible trade opportunities.

    This means remaining in the EU.
    Leaving the EU really doesn't give the UK more...

    So you'll know that many businesses have narrow profit margins and/or rely on deliveries being on time (both into and out of the business).
    Most businesses can cope with occasional interruptions in supply (e.g. a few days as a result of weather/strikes), although they may take a financial hit...

  • Presumably this clause is under the part of the lease that refers to freeholder's responsibilities?

    The clause is saying that the freeholder will have to carry out repairs to any flats that have not been leased, or to flats that have been leased under different terms from your lease, at...

    So, you don't understand that even large businesses aren't prepared to accept losses that they think they can avoid by moving production elsewhere (especially when they don't have any definite idea when things will end, and will have good reason to suspect that it will take years for any sort of deal...
