RTM Settlers Court Nightmare decision for leaseholders?

The Settlers Court supreme court judgement is we believe totally unfair and unreasonable. This decision enables RTM (Right to Manage) companies to only manage their building and not any common parts i.e. gardens etc.

This takes away a key reason for RTM to manage their building and surrounding areas some of which may not be appurtenant but generally used by the RTM property.

We are two blocks of flats one RTM and the other managed. The managing agent has now sent service charge demands (400%) over previous charges to the RTM company without consultation or agreement and with no breakdown of what they are – with an upfront payment demand?

This is unfair and unreasonable if anyone has any knowledge to bear on this or any details of tribunals challenging Settlers Court that would be good. We understand that the Leasehold Reform Act may change this!

What is needed are invoices with breakdowns for actual works to the fabric of the common parts!

By challenging the managing agents at FTT, if you win, not only will you get a refund of some/all fees charged but it should help you in your quest to change case law.
