We live in a house of multiple occupancy in London, with two self contained flats sharing a small communal hallway / entrance. Both flats have a share of freehold The other freeholder is permanently leaving 6-8 pairs of shoes, a shoe rack, dog leads and an umbrella in the small communal hallway. Whilst the individual items are not bulky they can be a trip hazard and it is our main fire escape. Is there anyway to have these items legally removed? Other than removing a broom the other items remain and the freeholder is not responding to formal requests.
We have no landlord. We share the freehold between our two flats
I have not complained to the council as this is not a council home
It's not a house share as we do not share facilities. They are two entirely self contained flats. we have the downstairs and they have the upstairs
We are an HMO category F
I've been talking to the fire service today and using a communal area and main fire escape as storage is against fire regulations. As such do I have to go to a solicitor still?
