How to address loss of income from car parking space?

Reply to the comment left by Michael O at 16/03/2020 - 21:07Land registry website should have it, you can purchase a copy of the lease(s) for less than £10. Odd that you don't have this, you should have been given a copy when you bought the property. If separate it will have a separate title. RTM companies are made up of owners I believe, are you a member of the company? Also I am confused following this thread, are "Dray" and "Michael O" one and the same?

If the space is not mentioned in the flat lease, the clause they rely on should not apply... Read More

Freeholder charging £36k for a new roof for my BTL Flat!?

Graham Bowcock's assessment tallies with my own experience, the only thing I might query is the 5.99% interest, you could get a better rate from your bank.

I had a roof completely repaired last year (albeit listed so Welsh slate required) and it was £40000 in total, which was actually very reasonable.

That said, who owns the freehold and why is not held by the flat owners? Do you pay ground rent? RTM is an option but better to buy it outright if you can.

However, don't underestimate the hassle and costs it will cause you, and you will probably still need the roof done... Read More
