Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thanks for your enquiry. Has your Housing Association/Freeholder served a Section 20 Notice, notifying you of major works due to the building?
What work needs to be done and when will it be done?
I look forward to hearing from you. Al
Hi, thanks for your reply.
Legally, unless the Freeholder has billed you for these works, you are not liable to pay them as the sums only become payable once demanded by the Freeholder. However, in these circumstances, it is often a case of trying to come to a compromise with the Buyer and you may want to meet him half way, just so the Sale proceeds. This decision is of course yours.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position.
If so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.
Kind Regards Al
Thanks. Please could you rate my answer, if I have assisted.
Best Wishes Al
