The study previously found that some property managers were engaging contractors on the basis of how much commission they would earn for themselves, rather than the value for money they would provide.
“Many property managers provide a good service to leaseholders, but protection against the worst failures by property managers is vital, because when problems do occur, they have a major impact on leaseholders,” said Rachel Merelie, a senior director at the CMA who led the study.
The report recommends:
- Property managers should set out clear improvement plans, justifying all charges and any commission they are earning. They should also disclose any corporate relationships with contractors or landlords
- There should be a new mediation service, to prevent leaseholders having to go to court if they are unhappy about the level of charges
- Flat-buyers should be given more information about service charges and ground rent when they get the property details from the estate agent.
- via BBC News – Flat owners should be given new rights, concludes CMA.

At the 2014 SHBL AGM our chairman claimed that the CCTV had been withdrawn on advice from Sussex Police but declined to provide any written evidence of this advice, even in the form of minutes. The only fact we know is that Aram was witnessed disabling this service, apparently in a fit of pique following the incident on B1 where a resident spotted the caretakers partner lying on the floor.
