The dubious managing agents for the freeholder have issued a ‘Notice for Works.’ They are extensive, requiring scaffolding and remedial work to exterior brickwork etc. I have a month to comment on it.
It is based on a survey they carried out after a flat in the building had water ingress after the recent downpour. Am I within my rights to see that survey and also this notice of works contains no estimate?
Surely we need some protection in case they pull a figure out of thin air, and if it seems too high don’t the leaseholders have an option to bring in an alternative contractor?
