    If the housing benefit was paid direct to the landlord in all cases, I suspect many more landlords would be willing to rent out properties to people on benefits and take out the risk of not being...

    I suggest you call an EGM to discuss this with all shareholders. This is a major decision as Ram has pointed out and the freeholder needs to get all the relevant info to make an informed decision as...

    The lease does not stipulate that there are to be only 2 members of the single family. As you admit you do not know who it is. It could be a brother, sister, step brother, aunt. You could have a...

    You may find there is a lot more damage in the property, hence her reluctance to allow access.

    Land still belongs to the couple. It is separate to your title and therefore you cannot claim it, nor can the neighbours who it seems by fencing it off are going for the adverse possession in 12...

    Beware as he may sell it at auction for a token and you may end up with another freeholder who will employ a managing Company and your costs may escalate out of your control. No major repairs needed...

    We are still waiting to hear back from the leaseholder his response to our documentation. The date was 13 October. What happens when one party ignores the FTT directions?

    ram,

    There was a void between tenancies so someone had to pay for the void so either the LA got the bill as he took charge of all the bills or the landlord.

    If LA had looked at the interim bill, then surely he would have noticed that there were meter readings on the water bill. The fact that the water company did not know that the previous tenant left...

    Yes currently we bill on quarter days, but it would be preferable to bill a year in advance due to some non payers. So what to do this year to rectify the situation or should we wait until the AGM...

    You are going to have no money left after buying the freehold. Those leaseholders, who dont want to enfranchise or pay now for works, will not want to pay for works later, but now it will be your...

    For more than 15 years, we have been billed quarterly for SC. Recently we have discovered that the lease states the SC is to be paid annually. We presume that the directors made a decision when...

    More questions:

    If the MA billed both the reserve and service charge under...

    Don't the meters belong to the utility company? I think they would have to move them but the price would be significant. If you wish to convert the garage, it would at your cost to move them.
