I’m a first time buy to let landlord. Just reserved a 2nd floor 1 bed flat in an office conversion with walking distance to Sutton train station.
The design of the flats are such that all 5 units have access to lifts (& stairs) except the two corner units, one of which on the 2nd floor I’ve reserved. They are expected to use stairs, which were the emergency staircase of the old office with no access to the lifts. From plot plan, it suggests both corner units for all 4 stories have exclusive use of the emergency stairs.
Is that a concern not having lift access? It seems to apply to these 8 units over a development of 80 units for the entire block.
Is it possible to negotiate lower service charge with freeholder given no access to lifts?
Thanks for all the advice in advance, much appreciated.
