The flaw in this plan is that the Freeholder already has a solicitor who has been dealing with some of the issues we've had (it's been to tribunal once already and now there's new issues due to them sticking yet more unreasonable charges on us). The freeholder will just pass it all to the solicitor. The lease - like most leases - has a clause that allows him to pass any legal fees back to the leasholders on the service charge.Have not seen the op around recently in this. All very entertaining suggestions but no help really when you just want a bit of peace and freedom in your own home.
My Freeholder didn't actually live on the premises either so targeting the daughter isn't getting to the point.
Freeholder is the person to address.
Get onto every site relating to Leaseholder problems and fling every form, writ, challenge etc at him constantly. Doesn't have to be specific to your case just bury him in legalise. It is then his problem to fathom it all out and respond. State in every communication that you give 7 days to respond. After the 7 days fire off another one noting that they have failed to respond and engage in reasonable negotiation. Sling in every couple of missives that you have endeavoured to engage in 'reasonable' agreement.
Will cost you nothing but a few stamps and print costs. Make it your hobby. 30 minutes a day.
Worked for me and apparently reduced freeholder to tears. Unfortunately then handed over to shark management company. However these management creatures are fair game so gloves off and all previous post suggestions can be applied with impunity.
You evil bastard.From previous Arrse events I've read or heard about- I imagine a choice leaking of her name, address, phone and email addresses under an anonymous burner account will lay the groundwork for everyone to do it for you- and judging by the borderline evilness of some of these genius responses, I've no doubt people will jump on it and arrange all manners of titanous rubber cocks, grasshopper infestations and homeless piss-shows be delivered upon their doormat.
The legality of that might be questionable- but at least everything ordered and organised wouldn't be your doing!
All you'd need to do is keep us all updated every now and then.
Would a "concerned" enquiry to the landlord's solicitor have a similar effect?OP, is there any communal garden or flowerbed area? Sow a few Japanese knotweeds, sit back and play the long game for a bit. Then take photos and send to the landlord. The beauty of this is that the plant in question is well known for running riot and undermining building foundations. Whilst unlikely to damage your place, it will pretty much guarantee that nobody will get a mortgage to buy any of the old ****'s property.
Yes it's a nightmare and really grinds you down. Been there and I nearly cracked up. One thing he cannot wiggle round is your right to challenge/question all these inflated maintenance and repair costs. You have the right to get your own quotes ( 3 ) and he must specify clearly what exactly is required so you can do so. That at least stops him using his own 'workmen'.The flaw in this plan is that the Freeholder already has a solicitor who has been dealing with some of the issues we've had (it's been to tribunal once already and now there's new issues due to them sticking yet more unreasonable charges on us).

Lease law is bloody Victorian in it's fairness.
