Problems with Barrister in freehold flatsMake Text Bigger
A friend of mine is the owner of a freehold flat, first floor,with similar flats one above and one below. There is no management committee structure, and the freeholder of the 2nd floor flat has not paid his share of the joint costs for insurance or electric supply to common areas for many years.
Unfortunately the owner is a barrister, whereas the other two owners are single women with no legal knowledge. The barrister has been absent for many months and let his flat in the meantime, which may contravene the terms of his lease.
It would appear the owners are freeholders, but with leases to each other.
Any comments or advice gratefully received.
