I’m just taking a block through the Right to Manage, and we are at the stage of informing the Freeholder. However, many are concerned by the service charges we have received over the 5 years the block has existed and suggesting we have the previous accounts checked to see that all is/was well – this is not a job for a regular accountancy company, so anyone any recommendations?
I know we have the right to go through them ourselves, but no one has the time to take this on. We will probably stay with the management company we have, as we have managed to work reasonably well with them as a Resident Association.
A lot of the expenses have come about because of faults in the block that we have not managed to take to the NHBC for reasons best known to the management company.
We’ve also had an issue with one floor who existed before the new builds, and they have refused to pay service charges for the last 5 years – this is complicated, and I’m not sure any of us understand what happened but the Freeholder and Management are allowing it until some S20 work is done.
