We are the owners of one flat in a block of 8. Although the flat owners do not own the freehold, we do have the rights and obligations of running the property. I recently took over the responsibility of managing the managing agents when the previously responsible owner sold his flat. We have a good tenant in our flat.

A fire risk assessment of the common areas identified some shortcomings, one of which was a considerable amount of material stored in the electrical cupboard adjacent to the main entrance. I have instructed the managing agent to inform all owners and tenants to clear any material that they have stored there.

The owner of one of the flats (who has a long standing tenant) has previously strongly resisted removing her (the owner's) belongings from this cupboard. In fact the fire risk assessment was done one year ago prior to our purchase of our flat and her opposition seems to have been sufficient to have stalled any activity. I have followed up with her but have yet to receive a response.

I would appreciate advice on what is due process on issuing written warnings and ultimately removing the offending material. Thank you.
