I am a leaseholder of 2 small studio flats in a block of 6. The management company are only responsible for paying the insurance and the communal electricity.
There is no management fee, no maintenance liability and no sinking fund. Each leaseholder has responsibility for various parts of the building ie ground floor flats are responsible for the grounds and pipes, the first floor flats are responsible for the roof guttering etc.
It’s not a great lease and one leaseholder in the block does not carry out her maintenance responsibilities and lets her flat to those with high support needs. Her most recent tenant is a convicted drug dealer who is likely still dealing and is causing much anti social behaviour. Police are involved.
I am wondering how to go about getting the management company to obtain leasehold forfeiture and I understand me or the remaining leaseholders would have to pay legal costs. Can you advise if this is a recommended course of action and anyone have any idea of likely costs,or any ideas please?
