We bought a leasehold flat on the 20/6/14. We have just received a request for payment of 1.6k for paving works from the housing association who are the de facto freeholder. The Section 20 was dated the 14/06/14 a week before we completed.
Our Solicitor was not aware of the Section 20 notice and we presume the vendor just binned the notice. It appears to be unfortunate timing rather than a conspiracy.
However, do we have to pay or can we refuse as we did not receive adequate notice?
Not tempted to sue the Solicitor or the previous owner as the first will cost thousands and the second have moved abroad.
