  1. Thanks ericsbrother. No they sent them to an old address. I sent them a letter that had previously been sent to Trust property management with my new contact details on. I have a court hearing for the set aside soon and hopefully they will see that I have tried to resolve matters quickly (within days) and have provided enough evidence. Trust after several weeks of asking haven’t provided me with any backing information, I have never received any paperwork just the CCJ. I have done some research into Trust property management directors and the freeholder cyril freedman directors. The
  2. Hi Ericsbrother, There is a clause in the agreement and I have seen it a fair few times on other threads: “32. To pay all costs charges and expenses (including legal costs and charges payable to a surveyor) which may be incurred by the freeholder in or in contemplation of any application to the freeholder for any consent pursuant to the covenants herein contained and of any steps or proceedings or the service of any notice under section 146 or 147 of the property law act 1925 including the reasonable costs charges and expenses aforesaid of and incidental to the inspecti
  3. So after writing a complaint to the management company (Trust Property Management) they write back Dear Mr X, I am the Managing Director’s assistant and have been passed your email below and letter attached in his absence. He is away until the 27th August and I shall bring your letter to his attention upon his return. Meanwhile I attach our Complaints Handling Procedure (“CHP”) that explains how he will deal with your concerns. Due to his annual leave the dates will slip a little. In order that he has the full papers before him on his return, co
  4. Hi All Thank you for your advice so far. I have received my lease agreement and the ground rent they have charged for 3 of the years is correct at £150 per year and but there is a spurious amount that I don’t recognise for £42.24. I have been charged for administration charges £48 per year for 3 years and then £72 plus £120 x 2 so a lot of admin charges (£456). my lease says: Rental payments to be made a year in advance.24.1 To pay the said rent on the days and in the manner in which the same is hereinbefore reserves and made payable without deduction.24.2 T
  5. Thanks for the advice ericsbrother. I applied for the set aside and was told it would likely be granted with no hearing. Then when the court hearing date came through (around 24/7) I called the courts to ask if i could do the hearing by conference call as I was abroad and didn’t know when i was back. And then was told to reapply for this by requesting an adjournment. I didn’t say anything to solicitor as the court hadn’t granted this right up to the 11th hour. So I applied for the adjournment. thanks
  6. Hi all, as i got the case adjourned i wondered if the claimants solicitor could charge me more? They emailed me earlier; Dear Mr x I have just picked up a message on my voicemail from the County Court at x advising me that the hearing of your Application this morning has been adjourned at the last minute on the grounds that you are in Abroad. This is of course your Application and the Notice of Hearing was issued on 22 July. We have been in correspondence recently and you did not at any stage advised me that you may have to apply for an adjournment on this basis. Pleas
  7. Thanks for the advice ericsbrother. I’ve now located my lease (being sent to me) so will be able to see if what they charged is correct for the other fees. They’ve applied loads of admin and legal fees. The “outstanding” ground rent is far less than the charges and think that the section 146 may be invalid too as it’s also under £500 ground rent! I managed to get a copy of my letter sent to them but didn’t send recorded delivery. I called them too but that’s obviously verbal so no recording. Do you think I should pay the outstanding ground rent (when I have checked my agreement) to
  8. Case adjourned and now apparently it is going to take 45 minutes via video link! I will order the lease now and get reading!
  9. Thanks ericsbrother really appreciate the response. I was due in court on Monday and just waiting to hear back on the adjournment as I need to do by phone....I am hoping to buy more time to get hold of my detailed lease agreement and check like you say,.... They have sent me a few letters and apparently they served these on the flat and another old address. I have provided them a letter to my moms place where I have been receiving post etc. Think that they have just not updated this for some reason. The solicitor has gone quiet when I produced a bank stateme
  10. Cheers ericsbrother! I have a uk address (moms) so would have known that the letters were received! I’ve sent the i information to them and they keep asking for more now!!!
  11. Hi dx100uk I have told the solicitor that I’m disputing the claim and lodged my N244, Im due in court next week to ask to get the judgement set aside. I’m trying to get the case adjourned as I’m not in UK. So acknowledged as I’m trying to get it set aside so that I can challenge the cost! Ive asked my bank for the lease agreement as I don’t have a copy and will have to check this out in detail as you say. Feels like the legal fees are completely disproportionate to the cost of the ground rent!
  12. Thanks dx100uk I appreciate you responding. The ground rent is now 150 per year (need to check lease as this looks to have jumped up majorly) x 3 so 450. They are claiming in accordance with: “ The service charges regulations 2007 and sections 47 of the landlord and tenant 1985 and section 166 of the common hold and leasehold reform act 2002.” Trust Property Management Group is administering on behalf of Cyril Freeman limited. The solicitors are Spalter Fisher. They obviously try to speed things up and possibly well seasoned in this type of act
  13. Hi All, I have been living abroad for 10 years I had a call off my mom to say I owed £3,500 to a freeholder at an apartment I still own. The freeholder had contacted HSBC and asked them to add to the mortgage! I wrote to the freeholder and the solicitor to ask what this was. I Didnt get an invoice and completely forgot to transfer funds so my previous 3 years £90 per year ground rent had escalated. I received an email from the freeholder saying to deal with the solicitor then an email from the solicitor asking for £3,500 sending m
