  • Posted in: Section 13 notice under the 1993 Leasehold Reform Act (as amended)

    Wormstown's post | 07/10/2014 9:16 am

    Can someone clarify a point for me; Example: I own the top floor flat; the freeholder owns the flat below (currently rented) and the commercial unit (currently rented).

    The freeholder has not maintained the Building (Roof needs replacing, no maintenance to communal area has been done since 1996); he is in breach of numerous obligations to the lease and refuses to communicate with me and my solicitor.

    I want to serve a Section 13 notice under the 1993 Leasehold Reform Act (as amended) (I think this is the right Notice) and buy the freehold from him or at least force him into action by the threat of him loosing the freehold.

    Q. If you buy the freehold you are acquiring the properties within the block, first floor flat and ground floor commercial unit or just the rights to the land it sits on?

    I was told the reason I had to pay interest is because of the clause 3.1 in the Leaseholder covenants, however when you read the clause is says it is rent related 'to pay specific rents', nothing about service charges incurring interest.

    However the officer then goes on to say, that and any other monies...
    I find this a bit ambiguous to say the least, seeing as there is nothing in the Leaseholder covenants for service charges that start at clause 7.

    I have been retaining my service charge payments for over a year (as stipulated in my rights of my lease due to unreasonable charges) all monies are available to Nottinghill at the time all of the disputes and service are rectified and resolved, however as of 1st April 2012, they have informed me that they will now charge me interest on the outstanding balance until it is paid in full.

    Once example for retaining the payment is because Nottinghill have overcharged residents for over 3 years for two lifts in our building when the building actually only has one lift, and if it wasn’t for my own investigations they would still be charging us. We are still waiting for the rebate…

    If it wasn’t for there incompetents and bad management I wouldn’t be retaining the money at all…

    Are they legally aloud to charge me interest when the disputes are unresolved and they are at fault by their own admission?
