Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know if they have served demands for service charge/ground rent and if so when was that please?
That is correct.
They also have 12 months to serve a notice for demand of service charge and rent
If they have not served it within 12 months the previous years they claim are void
In any event they can not collect or charge for payments before they took over
Its not their debt, it is the old Company
So you don't owe historic debts and you only owe any demand served within 12 months
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
No, they can't claim from before they were involved.
In any event they can only claim from when they took over and even then only if you were served a demand
Does that help?
No. It has to be a formal demand.
If they knew you were letting out and had agents they could have got in contact with them
No. They can only charge for 12 months at a time.
Therefore if the demand is served now, it can only be for the current year, not historic arrears
Is that ok?
Great. If I could invite you to rate my answer before you go, it should be at the bottom of the page. Thanks
