  3. I'd really love to know if anyone has knowedge of building rules with regard to blocking a front door within a block of flats. My local authority freeholder is electrical rising works on me and I have walked out of my front door onto the common hallway this morning to discover chalk marks on the lino of where they intend to install - 13 inches in front of my front door. So basically they intend to put a box with electrical cables about 13 inches away from my front door on the LHS ( side with hinge) as you exit. The markings suggest a box 18 inches by 8 inches protrusion from the wall
  4. Hi, I was wondering if anybody could help me with my situation as per below. Any support or guidance would be gratefully appreciated. I was summoned to Croydon County Court on 24th June 2014 for refusing to give Croydon Council Permission to fit a front door to my leaseholder property, on the grounds I cannot afford to pay for it. Myself and my ex partner purchased the property in May 1990. For the last 24 years the council have refused to paint the front door and when I complained I was told that the door was considered a fixture and not part of the structure of the building therefo
  5. Hi all, My freeholder is being an ass (to put it lightly) as I am pushing his hand to attend to urgent external repair works which have caused damp to come into my home for well over a year. He is trying to make my life difficult by enforcing random lease clauses he has never bothered with in 7 years. One is in relation to him being able to inspect my property and ask for repairs to take place. I live in England – so if any of you lovely people know the law and could help me out I would be ever so grateful. I have done some research online and found some answers. His demands and my n
  6. My first time so I hope this is the right forum. I am the freeholder of a property with 5 flats. I also own 4 out of the 5 flats. I have a highly regarded management company (MC) complying with necessary laws & regulations. The lady (leasholder) of the 5th flat has been nothing but trouble over many years. She has always been late on paying service charges and almost every year the MC recovers the money from the the mortgage company and/or small courts route. This year (2013) she hasnt paid at all. She asked many questions of the MC and they answered everything she wanted.
  7. Hello all I am not sure I can be helped here but any advice would be great please. I am a shareholder/leaseholder of a flat in a block of seven. The ltd company is limited by shares and right now has just one director. who's flat is directly beneath mine. In January 2013, while my flat had been empty for a month or two while I was working away, there was a leak which damaged the ceiling below and the cost of repairs came in at around £1,500 which I paid from my own pocket. A month or so later, it emerged that the damage may well not have been caused by my flat but as a resu
  8. In 2013 my mortgage lenders have been approached**by the freeholder informing them of a 2012 LVTribunal determination to pay for service charges arrears (which we still dispute) amounting to almost £12,000. The Tribunal determined we had to pay for £12k plus some of the freeholder legal costs. To that bill the freeholder added a bill of almost £100.000 to cover his costs awarded against the leaseholders increasing our service charge bill to almost 20k per flat. We presented two appeals in 2012 (to the LVT and to the Upper Tribunal) both rejected with great surprise given the evidence a
