Apartment leases require the notification to the LL’s management company on the occasion of a purchase and other events. On a detailed reading I found there is a provision that where there is a concurrent notification of title and charge, only one such fee shall be payable.
On rechecking the completion statements with two different firms of solicitors, I found that both had paid, and the management company accepted, a payment in respect of each. The solicitors have contacted the management company which has not responded.
Q1 presumably the inadvertent overpayment is not final?
Q2 as the ground rents are coming due on the 1st May (all the same mngt. co) could I notify of an intention to contra the overpaid notice fee against each relevant ground rent payment?
Q3 Failing the above should I simply require the solicitor’s firm to make reimbursement and leave it to them to chase?
