I own an ex council flat that I rent out which I had double glazed some years back. I’ve just received a letter from the council advising that they intend to replace the windows in my block (2 flats) but even if I’ve had mine done I will have to contribute according to how many properties there are in the block.
On this basis I seems that I’m being asked to contribute 50% (plus a 12.5% ‘management fee’) towards the cost of the new windows in the other flat, which is still owned by the council.
This doesn’t seem strictly fair to me but I’ve spoken to them and they are saying it’s in the lease I signed and basically, tough luck!
I could understand if it was say the guttering or roof etc. as we all enjoy the benefit but this seems wrong.
