We are a block of eight Leasehold apartments. The Freeholder has always chosen the Managing Agent, changing every three years.
Each agent has been a big blue chip agent and each has delegated the management to junior staff. Each has failed to enforce the no sharing / short letting rule resulting in vandalised common parts and anti-social behaviour.
The annual S/C accounts have never balanced and the Freeholder has let it slide. Each new agent takes on a rolled-over sum of ‘arrears’ which cannot be accounted for.
A new managing agent has taken over and is threatening legal action unless the ‘arrears’ are paid. We do not feel we should pay amounts where there is no backup documentation.
Help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
