I have two flats in a 1930’s block of 120 ish. The Freeholders have given less than 24 hours notice (I don’t know how the notice was served as I heard nothing and neither did my tenants) to remove bikes from an area historically used as a bike store. There is a policy in place with the management company and permits have been issued – not all the bike users have subscribed to this. The reasons given by the Freeholders is that it is the Fire Service that has instructed this – they haven’t provided any proof and having spoken to them (Fire people) they say that they haven’t issued the information.
The bikes were removed by the Porter and are now elsewhere, as it is holiday time many residents had no idea this was happening and I only knew from the residents association and I’m not sure how they found out – probably from the porter.
Couple of questions – the locks have been broken to remove the bikes, can this legally happen and having issued a permit to be there how can the management then give hours notice to remove and not provide another space.
We have been told that now the bikes have been removed they cannot be replaced.
The residents are at odds with the Freeholders for various issues – and are making the move to buy the Freehold, I’d sat that this is just the Freeholder throwing out distractions, it just adds to the list.
