Gas Boilers declared At Risk because flue cannot be inspected?

No you cant, you have to have a valid gas safety certificate and you cant get one of those unless the joins in the flu can be inspected. You need to get inspection hatches fitted so the joins of the flu can be inspected as part of the gas safety check. I assume your flu runs above the ceiling in a void? If so you need 1 hatch fitted every 1.8m. I am not a gas engineer but I have had this done in 10 flats that were built before the reg came in.... Read More

Freehold Managers Unreasonable Fees for Subletting Consent

Reply to the comment left by "James Feehily" at "07/08/2015 - 12:57":

Well basically as far as a notice to underlet fee goes we have agreed on a fee of £50. My lease says no more than £35+vat so ive refused to pay there £120 for a couple of years now and finally they come to there senses a few months ago and agreed to £50. On the matter of there notice to underlet renewal fee of £72 I have been point blank refusing to pay this because it does not say in my lease that they can charge a renewal fee so they have agreed to never charge me a renewal fee ever again. However I did used to pay the renewal fees over a number of years (on 6 flats) due to my own stupidly so I am in the process of claiming all those back plus interest, they have gone from refusing to now considering the refund. They seem to think I do not have anything on them to produce in court but I do I'm just not letting on to them I do ie....proof of payments, judges previous decisions and every piece of correspondence they have ever sent me going back 10 years. They are playing with me at the moment but eventually they will have to refund me the renewal fees because they are unlawful. Plus I've just sent them a SAR so hopefully they will give in shortly and send me a cheque.... Read More
