Due to excess heat in some flats in a block (where I have a couple of units) some tenants contacted the local council who appeared and are now proposing to issue a Hazard Awareness notice (cat 1) on the Freeholders. We are in the process of a RTM (successful) but do not take over until March.
A couple of questions if anyone has been through this:
Will this apply to all flats in the block? Not all have the same level of heat/problem and I imagine that the Freeholder will be told to put this right.
Will this be through the service charge or at their cost? It is a new build (new badly build but not the same Freeholder).
Does it make any difference if we have our RTM or not? We are retaining the current management who has been working with us on many issues on this block. It’s an absolute disaster of a block with so many build issues and beats me how developers can get away with these things, but it appears that they do.
