I have a flat, which is a leasehold. It is in a large block of flats. There have been a few changes in the owner of the freehold.
There are problems with the management company which information not flowing from each sale and very little disclosure. We have a WhatsApp group of the tenants as there are a number of discrepancies re: insurance and other charges.
- What are the requirements for the management company to provide accounts? (We have no idea of actual spend and if there is a sinking fund)
- How can the owners get together and get the management company to get their act together? They have said we need to make a residents association and then they will communicate with us
- There is an issue with the electricity where we have been paying for another part of the building. What would be the process to recoup these costs and to ensure that it stops now? Is there a specific survey we can request?
- Is there a requirement for tendering of contracts for example the window cleaning etc? As costs seem very high.
Many thanks in advance.
