My Freehold landlord had several thousand pounds worth of work done on the building without any consultation with us. In fact we have NO idea any work was being done until we received a bill for thousands. We disputed the invoice and looked up advice online which said that the legal amount (under section 20 act) we needed to pay under legislation was £250 per leaseholder.
We own all 3 flats so we paid £750. Now we get a legal letter stating that irrespective of no consultation we are bound to pay the 60% of the bill.
However, if we feel we were prejudiced in any way we need to notify them and they will consider it, otherwise they want to take us to arbitration. They site “Daejan Investments Limited V Benson and Others. So, if we want to allege prejudice they want to know what prejudice we are claiming. Can someone advise?? really stuck here.
What baffles me is that they are basically saying they can spend whatever they want and never have to consult with us, inform us or tell us…surely this cannot be right?
