Hi

 

 

 

we have a mortgage on a 1 bed flat, in dorset.

 

 

 

there is a management agency, covering around 30 flats in the block.

 

 

 

The fee has gone up and up, and we now wish to challenge them over these costs,

 

 

 

 

 

we understand that we can , and I quote

 

"An option we recommend is to bring in a specialist accountant to look through historical service charge accounts to check whether money has been spent correctly and whether any savings could be made. An accountant doing so will usually come in on a no win, no fee basis"

 

has anyone gone down this route, obviously, our objective is get some kind of reduction,

 

also, has anyone, can anyone give any similar experiences, outcomes, ?

 

 

 

have you used the Leasehold Evaluation Tribunal ?

 

 

 

thanks in advance

 

 

 

Dave

I dont know much about this link I'm posting but I heard someone talking about it on the radio and it might help you. It's something called a Tenants Association.

 

It will give you the tenants some control over what money is spent on and therefore hopefully bring down or at the very least put a stop to increases.

 

This is just a website I found by googling and not connected with the radio show I heard but I'm sure there is plenty of advice out there elsewhere.

ps, in the example I heard on the radio the DJ did own his flat and the Tenants Association was set up to combat rising ground rent or service charge or whatever you may call it that was for cleaning this, painting that etc. I assume it's all the same.
