Lease Extension - Two year restriction?

It sounds like they've gotten partial information from someone who was perhaps caught out. They're right about the 2 years wait but certainly don't need to worry about it at 92 years. I'd say it's a waste of time and money to extend for 7 years. Surely waiting and doing a bigger extension down the line is more sensible in the long run - I'm not an expert, but all the costs involved for a 7 year increase.... Perhaps point them in the direction of a surveyor or info site which would give them full info on leases, so they can take the full picture into account rather than the one point that someone has warned them about....

Service charge hike?

Such is the joy of the unregulated managing agent market!
Laws need to change and you can join the cause. Unfortunately the consultations are passed, but you can still support the petitions.

Dangerous cladding freeholders arguments?

Reply to the comment left by SimonR at 10/05/2019 - 10:25
That's interesting, I'd love to know who warned the government / whoever, it's ridiculous that they don't take heed of something until it becomes a danger or a big stink. Bad advice & shoddy workmanship is never dealt with properly anymore, everyone has a get out clause to protect themselves for a crap job which they are supposedly educated and paid to do, without any accountability when they fail.
I feel for the leaseholders, they're just expected to take the hit of everything "because the contract says so" without any liability for shoddy work falling to the so called experts who were entrusted to build / repair. This feudal contract devised for peasants hundreds of years ago needs demolishing, just as other ridiculous laws have been. The applicable people and companies need to be held accountable....

46 Landlord MPs claim more than £1.3m for rent or hotels!

Why should they be able to claim mortgage interest / rent?! What other job allows it? Put them in a houseshare, you'll soon see them suddenly able to live in their own flats & pay their own way! So sick of these buffoons who can't even do their job yet can deduct every personal expense under the sun that should come our of their own salary.... Read More
