I have held the lease on my first floor flat for the past 21 years, extending it in 2013. The Freeholder owns and lets out the ground floor flat. I have struggled with the Freeholders approach to managing my Lease. Standing charges include a peppercorn rent, £100 paid toward the Maintenance Fund and 50% of the building Insurance.
The ‘accounts’ are a joke and I often have to correct them, the Management Fund is supposed to be kept in a separate account and any interest added. Interest has NEVER been added to the account.
I have been waiting 13 years for external brickwork repairs, first proposed by the Leaseholder in 2008. Other repairs have been completed (without Section 21 being followed). I have only had sight of the Full Buildings Insurance Policy once. I have seen the full information given to the Insurance Company by the Freeholder on just three occasions, each time the information has been incorrect.
I have raised my concerns, but the Freeholder assures me that the building is adequately insured, however nothing in the Policy states that the building is insured as two s/c flats other than both flat addresses appear on the policy. When I write to the Freehold raising my concerns, I am either dismissed or ignored.
At present, I am about to serve a Notice of Intent at the end of June to take my concerns to Court as a Breach of Contract to try and get my Freehold to uphold her responsibilities.
Any advice would be most welcome.
