I have a couple of units in an old block – the Freeholder went on a blitz a couple of years ago and checked all flats against their lease floor plan and imposed large costs for retrospective consent (wooden floors, open plan kitchens etc).
They also imposed ‘fines’ on those who had installed new boilers and had to have the now needed longer flues to clear the walkways so that the flues were fixed under the walkway – and this apparently needed freeholders consent and those who did not were ‘fined’ £2000
This was not only retrospective, but also the fee for those who then applied and some put in electric boilers.
Question is can a freeholder impose this when it is necessary to comply with new regulations?
This is putting everyone off improving their flats (mine is one of the few that vents through an outward facing wall so I’m fine)
