Service Charge and Management Company Review

There has been a fair amount of debate on various social media groups in recent weeks concerning mostly lack of service and information which would clarify exactly what we are expected to pay for. EMVRA has been in correspondence with Cell F management Company on and off for about three years and this material is available in the forums for registered users (if they can find the will to wade through them!).

Thought it might be useful to produce a summary which is below - you can also get it as a pdf file.

Town Centre Consultation Today 17th December! 3-7pm GPCC

This is a consultation by the consortium about their planning application for the town centre.  The plans will be available to see and consortium representatives can be quizzed.  It is an extension of Project Manager David Abercrombie's drop in session which is still on between 1 and 3pm. If you can't make it today because of short notice or pre Christmas commitments, you can still contact David with comments/queries at the project office.  For clarity, this is not a local authority planning consultation, but will be used to support the application process.

Scottish Test Case re service charges

The verdict is just out and the home owner won!!  We don't have enough detail yet to know how the UK wide laws were interpreted in the arguments, but it is a great start!!  
The tribunal found that their burdens (roughly equivalent to the covenants in our transfer deeds) were not real or enforceable.
No doubt the land management company will appeal.
