The freeholder of my rental flat in a Block split his original parcel of land into two parcels by selling off the parking bays. At FirstTier Tribunal, we won, as litigants in person, the right to free car parking on the bays of the new freeholder . (Needless to say, he was trying to charge us £500 p.a.)
Our lease with the original owner included a clause saying our service charge covered maintenance of the forecourt, which term included the private road and the bays. This lease has not been altered since the sale to exclude the bays now under new freeholder. The forecourt has not been repaired in any way in the last 40 years, so none of our service charge has, in fact, been spent on it. It does need resurfacing!
The new freeholder of the bays erected gates across the private road entrance to our bays and despite over 4 months since the judgement has not given us the keys, thus continuing to lock us out of the bays and the private road to which our lease gives us express vehicular rights.
We are about to try negotiating with him. Has the new freeholder become our landlord for the bays and can he charge us a service charge for the bays?
He is, without going into details, a villain and I would not be happy paying any Money direct to him!
