We spoke last Friday on the telephone when I paid for the telephone service via Just Answer. We discussed my garden pergola and fence in relation to my lease (I have share of freehold).
On the phone I asked you the question: if the management company advised me that they have the final say over disputes, are they acting on behalf of the Directors of the Freehold Company and so their decision is final? But what would they base the decision on and do they have to follow some guidelines eg the lease rather than whatever they feel like deciding?
You said that you would need to read the clause in the lease to determine about who has final say and how it would be determined. We agreed that if I copied the specific clause in the lease as a separate question, you would be able to answer the question so here it is.
Do the management company have final say or the Directors?
What guidelines should the management company follow if they are the ones with the final say?
If the Directors have the final say, do they have to follow some kind of protocol rather than just demand that I remove these items because they don't like them?
They mentioned something about checking to see if what you have done is in keeping with a garden. Is that how they determine if a pergola and fencing can remain?
