Deed of Conditions Scotland

Recommended Posts

Can anyone advise on enforcement of "Deed Of Conditions" in Scotland.

 

If a Developer is placed in liquidation before completion of an estate with common property, the common maintenance of which is described in the DOCs. Are the DOCs enforceable ?

 

The developer was running out of money and made many construction shortcuts/ changes to the common areas, the changes were never registered with The Registers of Scotland. They finaly run out of money and were placed in liquidation by the courts.

Many houses were unfinished and some had not been built. The liqidator pulled enough funds together to build the final few houses and sold them to cover his costs. The unfinished houses were not completed by the liquidator and were left for the owners to complete (the owners had to pay upfront for their houses before construction). Many houses were left without completion certificates and remain so to this day. Owners moved in without the certificates.

 

The common areas, ie gardens/ landscaping, paths, railings, drainage systems were never completed.... mostly never even constructed. Some areas are a hazard with unprotected vertical drops of upto 3 metres, other areas are subject to flooding due to lack of drains

 

Construction was in the 1970s

 

The problem now is some owners are trying to enforce the Deed of Conditions or their own version of it.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

sorry can't seem to find anyone who would know or be confident to answer.

 

Could you let us know when you have contacted GLC as it may help someone else in the future?

Not having much success

 

Called Govan Law centre but they were not able to help as I am out with their area, but they helpfully supplied contact info for the Legal Services Agency, Glasgow. Contacted them, but they say their helpline is only open on a Thursday from 11 to 1pm.

On checking their website help in this area looks doubtful.

Just resurrecting this thread in the hope there maybe new members who could help.

 Very happy to work to a Deed of Conditions, but the big problem is the areas covered by the Deeds were never constructed.

Just a pointer to a solicitor who is well experienced in this area would be great. Had fingers burnt many times by "experts". Many of the legal profession walk away when they discover the level of the problem.

    • Brassnecked they have provided images with different times on but there was someone (no ID) with a mobile phone taking pictures of the car as well?   The images from GLADSTONES are from an ANPR because they are aerial shots.   thanks for the info'
    • Yes, It is more the apparent contradiction really. The legislation seems to say that she can still cancel but wil be billed for the two weeks or less she used the service.   Its twelve months, I usually like to look at these things before we purchase, however. I just noticed that £45 quids gone out of my account this morning, that will be the joining charge. £18 monthly after that. Not too bad I suppose.   We live half way up a one in six hill for goodness sake, how much exercise does the woman need?  Just leave the car in the drive I say. Won't listen     
    • I figured they would be same company by googling them. Man, such dirty tactics these people use... Thank you DX! 
    • not a letter of claim safe to file   its actually from ZZPS too anyway claiming to be QDR
    • Well I think that one could reasonably infer that if, in the professional opinion of the doctor, a child is not fit for school and may present a risk of contagion, it can be reasonably inferred that the child is not fit to vacation for the same reasons.  There may be an additional cost to secure a second doctor's letter, so I would proceed with a copy of the letter to the school in the first instance.  It would be perverse, frankly, to suggest that a doctor's letter confirming a suspected prognosis of a contagious pox is somehow insufficient for the purpose of honouring the claim.  So I would just send that off - in the event that the insurers are difficult, then Snowdragon's daughter should be able to secure a further bespoke letter.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
