I am attaching the lease. It is a bit confusing to me.
Yes, I am the minority, 1/5. But if they set up a bank account for the building, they are thinking of having a monthly contribution per flat of 50 pounds.
The same way they don't want the building management company, am I oblige to contribute?
Plus, what if there are costs common to the 4 flats only?
yes, please continue.
Hello. I'm sorry you've had to wait a short while for a fuller answer.
You might want to have a look at this: http://www.flat-living.co.uk/advice/511-the-right-to-appoint-a-manager
And this: http://arma.org.uk/leasehold-library/document/appointment-of-a-managing-agent-by-a-tribunal/page/1
Between these two, they give some useful information about s.24 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987 which gives the right to any tenant to apply to the leasehold valuation tribunal to force a manager (or new manager) to be appointed to manage the flats. This is sometimes used where residents seek to manage the flats themselves and do not do a proper job of it.
The Tribunal does, therefore, have the ability to make the appointment against the wishes of the others flat owners (even if a majority).
Hope this is useful.
Does this answer your question please?
Is there anything more you would like me to detail for you?
