Apartment -management Fees / Service Charges
 
# 1 : Friday 11-5-2012 @ 14:04
 
 
Just got a bit of a benefit from all those fees today

The management company paid for someone to check the gas flu. It turns out that it has been loose for a long time and I could have died from carbon monoxide poisoning

Since the new MUD law came into place a few owners have basically taken over the management company and sacked the servicing company. Over the space of five years they have also managed to work to decrease the bill significantly. It really works well when you have strong people on these committees.

Discussion continued from here

Usually - but hopefully the MUD law will change that considerably

Shouldn't have got to that stage as i take it you are in a fairly new development and an issue like that is incredible. Just another case of the greed generated from the 'boom'.

So I am at logger heads with my management company over my outside terrace. It is infested with wood lice and they are coming into the bedrooms downstairs. I keep on complaining to the management company and the people who answer the phones (not their fault) tell me the manager won't answer my calls. He got a quote (for ripping up the terrace and pouring concrete into it) for 2 grand but that shouldn't be my problem. My fees are up to date so all good there.
So tomorrow I'm going to see a solicitor. What do you think my chances of a solicitor's letter will get them to do the job?
Anybody any experience of this?

Ground floor (where the problem is) and first floor. It's a duplex.

Should you inform the HSA, it could be everywhere and the manager might know this?

It is. They changed all the decking into concrete about 2 years ago but never did mine and they don't know why not.

Ah well, a solicitor and a threat of notifying HSA/Planning inspector should shake them up.

Should you contact local council over an infestation or rent a kill?

Don't think so. How much will a solicitor's letter cost?

I am very unhappy with my management company/managing agent. They are charging exorbitant fees for what I consider to be sub-par service.

Case in point: the external bins are overflowing with rubbish at the end of every week and it is now attracting vermin, especially in this warm weather. Rubbish is spilling out of the bins and blowing right in front of my front door. Also I was promised a new key to the communal bin shed 6 weeks ago and no sign of it yet, despite 2 phone calls and an email.

I plan on attending the next mgmt committee meeting and ruffling a few feathers. My neighbour told me the mgmt committee are comprised of a few absentee landlords and have a cozy little arrangement which is clearly not benifiting the residents.

Not good enough!

A few quid alright, you can be sure the solicitor will stretch this to make a few bob from you. Go to planning office, get an appointment and talk to someone about it. Then go to HSA, or to the authority for disputes between tenants and landlords. See if, you can be a pain in his ring, until it is sorted?
