Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
I am Al and am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Did you receive any prior Notice from the Housing Association of the intended works, and the opportunity to query the proposed works?
I look forward to hearing from you.
I will go through all the previous paperwork I received from the Housing Association once I get home after work today so I can fully confirm.
Thanks for getting back to me.
I will look forward ot hearing form you later.
I've scanned & uploaded the documents which they sent me on Saturday.
I've uploaded them to WeTransfer:
Please note, this is not the prior notice which you asked me about earlier (I still have to look for that once I get home).
These are just the docs which came with the 9k bill and which I took with me to work today.
I'm hoping these will give you a clearer picture on the situation.
Thanks for your post and attachments.
Basically, I am afraid all Leaseholders are responsible for any service charge, however big, PROVIDED the Freeholder has served prior Notice on them notifying them of such proposed works- this FOrm has to be in the Form of a Section 20 Notice (hence why I originally asked if you had received any prior Notice).
If it turns out that the Housing Association did send you a Section 20 Notice, I am afraid that you will be responsible for paying the service charge. If they did not serve you with the section 20 Notice, they are only legally entitled to charge you approximately £100 for the proposed works.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position to you.
