Hi, you need to refer to your Lease to see what your liability is towards any external works. However, all Leases will stipulate that you and the other Leaseholders will be responsible for a due proportion or percentage of these works. I'm afraid it won't allow for any discount for parties who have been living there for a shorter period of time- you all will need to pay the same amount, whether you have been there 1 year or 20 years. Sorry this is not the answer you were looking for, but it sets out the legal position. Kind Regards Al
