I have the documentation now thank you. The initial report on title is a little thin on advice.
The initial report on title says in clause 5,that the lease is enclosed and referred to the report on lease. However, I don’t have that report. It may be that what was reported to you was defective but I’m unable to say at this stage.
I have looked at the lease itself To see what your liabilities are and these are in the 4 schedule which is in page 16.
Under clause 1a you are responsible along with the other leaseholder for the cost of repairing the main structure and the roofwhich is described in the 4 schedule. The obligation to pay 50% arises under clause 3c.
Under clause 5e, it says that this is the lessors responsibility to carry out the work in the 4 schedule.
Hence, this is not a job for the other leaseholder. You and the other leaseholder are responsible for 50% of the cost of repairing the roof but that work must be done by the landlord.
If the landlord is going to do work which will cost more than £250 per tenant, he must serve a section 20 notice otherwise he cannot recover that money.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Please rate the service positive. It’s an important part of the process by which experts get paid.
I can still clarify things for you.
