I could do with some help with regard to Southwark Council
major works charges. We own a flat in St Lawrence House that is part of St Saviours Estate. When we purchased the flat we were told of impending external repairs to St Lawrence House.We were made aware that we would have to pay towards these costs. We weren't concerned about this as St Lawrence House is in pretty good nick and the windows and entrance key doors had already been installed. Now we are being told that we are liable for repairs on the whole of the Estate. And the repairs have gone from being minor to major repairs that are both internal and external. Does anyone have any experience in fighting for only paying the costs on your building and not the whole estate?
