  • My understanding of the OP was that there was currently an external freeholder.

    Regarding the rest of your post, there doesn't seem to be any legal 'block', that I can find, that would prevent a new group of freeholders from forcibly buying the freehold off a group that had already collectively...

  • You are only obligated to pay what the lease states you are contracted to pay, and you only need to pay in accordance with the terms of the lease.

    If your lease makes reference to 'interim payments', it is likely that these are advanced payments towards the services charges for the year...

  • Assuming that collective enfranchisement isn't ruled out for other reasons (e.g. the three flats are above commercial premises), if two out of three leaseholders wish to participate in buying the freehold you will be able to 'force' the current freeholder to sell you the freehold.

    The participating...

    I agree with this. Whatever the situation is regarding your flat, you need to know exactly what you are contractually obliged to pay for with regards to insurance, maintenance, etc. (if anything).

    It sounds like some sort of estate charge may apply, which can be the case with some properties,...

    That would depend on the exact wording within the lease.
    If there is anything at all in the lease that could indicate that there was an intention to link the payments to the cost of services, and allow some possibility of varying the amount, it could potentially be a considered to be a service...

  • Some of the staircases clearly would be expected to be common parts because they are used to access both the first and second floor flats (both of which have entrances indicated on the plan on the first floor).
    The lease can define common parts as "including staircases" without meaning...

    So, the choice is:
    1. Turn the boiler off now and have the tenants rely on the immersion heater and the additional heaters you have supplied during that time.
    2. Wait 2-3 months and then turn the boiler off for a week. So for 2-3 months the tenants have to rely on the additional heaters...

  • While I accept that this is an issue for the leaseholders involved, anyone considering the purchase of a leasehold in this sort of situation should insist on getting the promise in writing, preferably as a signed contract stating that they will be offered the freehold (at whatever price has been promised)...

  • Presumably you mean posts involving other questions, and you are assuming that these refer to the same property as those threads? Although you may be correct, I would say that isn't a reasonable assumption to make - unless you've seen a very good reason to think that the property referred to is definitely...

  • With regard to the freeholder failing to respond to you, you haven't said how long ago these issues arose, or giving any indication of the amount of time you have allowed between messages, but you should obviously consider the possibility that the freeholder simply has over things that he needs to deal...
