The Right to Manage or not?

Reply to the comment left by Alex Russell at 24/10/2018 - 15:23
I have spoken to the Freeholder and he has no control over the management company, they are basically employed by us the lease holders of the flats. So does that mean that we are going to have to go down the 'Right to Manage' road or can we just give them notice and change companies?... Read More

I have tried to call the freeholder but they are one of those companies that hides behind a wall when it comes to phone or emails, I think a hand written letter it will have to be.
I don't want to buy the freehold, I am trying to sell the flat, but I have an offer but only if we change the management company because they can see they have not done what they are paid to do.
I think the freehold was sold after this company was already appointed so the freeholder has no interest.... Read More

The lease is for the 3 apartments. Basically the freeholder just takes the ground rent and does nothing else and then we have a company that managers the building. I don't think the freeholder has any contact with the management company because they are in Cornwall and the property in Liverpool. The management company was in place before the freeholder bought the freehold.... Read More

Am I going nuts? - James 'Break TheHousingMarket Shire'

Mick I think your article shows that it doesn’t matter who is in “power” torries or labour. They do the same thing. Which actually shows they don’t make the long term decisions it’s the people in the back ground that make these rediculous decisions.... Read More

Fair or unfair landlord treatment - We're OUT!

I had a short career in sport so thought I would be careful with my money and buy property as a future investment and as a bit of a pension. 20 years on and one recession later and like you, have had enough of being the one paying for every government and bank mistake since 2008. I had 10 properties at once and just trying to sell the last 4, I think I have probably lost nearly £300,000 in that 20 years. Ground rent,block managers, tenants, letting agents (not all) all ripping you off if they can. Just been charged £420.00 for a management pack so I can try and sell a flat, £420.00 for a pdf and 20 minutes work. Do I have to pay it!? Of course I do otherwise I can't sell the flat and get out of this hell whole that is the modern private rented sector. I am out as well!... Read More
