Shelter's call for Boris to follow through on Section 21 ban

James, Boris is NOT pursuing a no deal Brexit but is prepared for it if that is the outcome. Cannot see why you perceive this as not demonstrating common sense?... Read More

Dylan, you are not entirely correct about freeholders arranging insurance and setting the premium to reflect the commission they earn. On the two developments I have been involved in as an owner and Management Company director on one it was just as you describe.

Service charge hike?

I thought what you say Mark would be the case. Leases are indeed often complicated and different but in leasehold new developments where I am an owner - two - developers were bound to set up a Management Company which they did with their own cronies as directors. Then when development was completed and they withdrew owners were invited to become directors which I did on both occasions. Thus I and other like minded owners as directors appointed Managing Agents who we can fire. Latter work up the budget with service charge levels annually which we approve or not. Thus we have total control. While you are right that many owners "can't be bothered" I cannot believe that your scenario really does mean that decent concerned owners like yourself are completely powerless to influence anything. Is there an AGM in your situation where you can attend and at least voice concerns?... Read More

Service charge hike?

Who appointed First Port in the first place? If they are the Management Company rather than Managing Agents is there not already representation from fellow owners on decision making like service charge levels? If First Port decide to re dec common areas say and owners don't think it necessary or vice versa for example there must be an existing method for your influencing them?... Read More
