When I bought my leasehold flat the two wood-framed window & door were in very poor repair. So much so that the managing agent contacted me to say that the decorating contractor found that the sills are rotten and the bottom edge of the windows is beyond repair. According to the lease the landlord should be “renewing or replacing” what is not “in a good and tenantable state of repair”. The Directors of the Management Company have accepted responsibility for maintaining the windows and doors although many leaseholders have replaced their own windows and doors over the years.
There are insufficient funds in the Sinking Fund so I have offered an interest free loan to the Management Company for one year so that they have an opportunity to put replacement windows into the budget and collect the money for the necessary works.
I have been in correspondence with the Managing Agent for almost three years about this matter and things have come to a head because the present tenant is leaving at the end of December and I’d like to have the matter resolved by then.
Since the Directors accept responsibility for the costs of replacement windows it is now just a question of how long I have to wait for them to do the work.
