    Property requiring major works

    I have recently bought a leasehold flat at auction without a survey being carried out. The flat itself is perfect. Under the terms of the lease, the leaseholders are responsible for all maintenance/building repairs. There are some communal areas that have subsidence which have been previously repaired. I'm not keen to carry out the repairs again without a full investigation/buildings insurance involvement because I want to know any repair work will have some longevity. The other leaseholders do not want to do this, I guess they want to fix the issues on a short term basis?? The Freeholder is threatening to revoke leases if the work (which has been outstanding for a number of years) is not carried out. I have not had any correspondence about this from the previous owner. The Freeholder is aware of the change of ownership but has not corresponded with me regarding the work, even though I have requested information from them. Advice as to next steps please.

    Hi J Jennings,


    This sounds like you need to speak to a specialist leasehold solicitor. I have the email of one if your struggling to source one yourself.
