Hi,Thank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer.Do you have a long leasehold property?Kind regardsAJ
I have 75yrs left on my leasehold
Hi,Thank you for your response.Would you simply like an acknowledgment from the new landlord or are you seeking to have the managing agents removed?Kind regardsAJ
Would like to know what articles of leasehold do I have with my new landlord because the one I have is with my Previous landlord (is this still lrgal?) also I have no Official notice that the previous managing agents are to continue without any consultation with us.
Hi,Thank you.SO to confirm was the previous landlord a freehold company? And the company has been sold to a new owner?Kind regardsAJ
Hi,Thank you.Your lease will not have changed just because the freehold company has been sold.Did Peverel buy the management company?Kind regardsAJ
peverel went into liquidation
Peverel were my landlord and managing agents the poroperty was sold to a property company andthe managing agents were bought by a n other very suspiciously and have kept the same management teams and I have requested bank statements for our Contingency/redecoration funds and they refuse to give them to me Have threatened litigation for embezzlement but they refuse to respond to my letters
Hi, Thank you.Have you or the other residents considered making an application for the right to manage the property?Kind regardsAJ
No no one wants to do it
Hi,Thank you.Do the management company not provide you with yearly statements of account? What do your terms and conditions with Peverel say about this point?What you could do is setup a residents management company and apply for the right to manage. Once this is obtained you could appoint your own professional managers to the property.Kind regardsAJ
What a waste of time and effort and money
Hello. My colleague has opted out, and I sense you are not happy with the responses received so far. However, we work with very limited facts and so asking lots of questions helps us to fine tune the issues. As far as I can tell, you simply want to know what effect the change of landlord has on your lease, and what relationship you now have with the new landlord. You also want to know how you can get information regarding the service charge fund from the agents. If this is right and you would like to continue, please confirm. I am available tonight, but if you respond after midnight it may be tomorrow evening before I can get back to you, as I work as a full time lawyer.
