    Aha..My Freeholder :), I've had fun and games with him and mostly (about 95%) in my favour.

    I've got a copy of this too, it used to be quoted quite a bit but its rather an old case now and has...
  2. But we do not know that the OP "owes the money"...

    But we do not know that the OP "owes the money" as a S166 demand may not been sent and you are incorrect to say that "ground rent is payable", pre 166 this would of been the case that GR was...

    Surely we use #, as that is the sytem as used by the forum, so I agree with post #25. :)

    Not arguing, just pointing out advice to people who come here, they want to know the legal position and I believe I have explained it to them, your comments in #9 would appear to show that you dont...

    But your claim is that the amount is fair and payable, full stop. But as LHA cleary states above, "If the bills have been correctly served, ", your posts make no such mention and I'm bringing this...

    Hang on..Its not 'pay up, end of story' at all.

    As we have discussed above, the amount of £55 may well be considered reasonable BUT unless valid ground rent demands have been sent AND the lease...

    Ram has a point, BUT if the FH/MA hasnt complied with the rules as listed in my above post then nothing maybe payable at all.

    But I agree that if all the rules have been followed then the amount...

    I've no idea about Memorandum's and Articles or the majority needed I'm afraid. i cant imagine you can send letters out on your own, etc.

    The burden of proof required is quite high, I doubt noise...

    I'll let LHA comment on co-freeholders :).

    There is no such thing, there will be a company that owns the Freeholder of which you own a share.

    What does the lease say about noise ?, most have...

    Your answer seems to simplify the situation.

    Demanding thousands of pounds you dont have is irrelevant, IF the works were required and were carried out.

    It may be the case that the lease allows...

    If the leases are seperate to the flat leases then are they not residential, in that they are not properties where anyone is resident ?

    As LHA has mentioned there are lots of laws to comply with for demanding of GR and Service Charges, unless he was careful it sounds like he may have lost any right to obtain the payments from you,...

    If there is no provision folr a sinking fund then paying into it would be optional or perhaps under an agreement between Fh and LH's although Im not sure how 'binding' this would be if a LH chose not...

    By section 20 the poster clearly means the S20 Consultation Process, which freeholders must comply with.

    To add to me above post, I assume though that the FH can ask for 25% upfront i.e £500 in December ? (Assuming the consultation process is underway)

    The wording of the legislation is initially quite simple but then it goes onto list a huge range of exceptions, and much like Paul Calf, taking a dislike to students

    On account means to be charged in advance so yes, he is allowed to do this and its surprising that if the lease allows that he hasnt done before as collected money in arrears is troublesome.
