All residents have been invited to attend meeting to discuss proposed maintenance and expenditure.As stated the majority have agreed,but a few will not attend the meetings,and refuse to pay any money.
We the association have raised an action through the small claims court(the amount we are suing for is less than £1500. from each individual) against one person at this time.At a recent court hearing it was established that only a heritable owner can sue another heritable owner.We have ammended our claim and are now in the process of seeking the written approval of a concerned to preceed with our claim in their name thru a spokesperson
