Poynders Court Limited v GLS Property Management Ltd [2012] UKUT 339 LC | LAW AND LEASE

it is worth repeating the definition of a QLTA, contained in s.20ZA3 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985: it is “an agreement entered into, by or on behalf of the landlord or a superior landlord for a term of more than 12 months”. The LVT’s decisionIn this case, the LVT’s view was that the agreement appeared to be a rolling contract, subject to a break clause.It determined that “taking all the elements of the contract together”, the agreement was a QLTA because it was to be for a period of greater than one year.

The landlord’s appeal was dismissed.

CCTV and Security

Following some very serious harassment of our caretaker and concierge by some residents and worrying incidents late last year in which the police were involved, they advised us to discontinue transmitting the CCTV footage over communal TV-system. At that time too it was thought prudent to increase the night security temporarily, though this has now reverted to having a guard only on Friday and Saturday nights from 6PM until 6AM.

One assumes that the police don’t recommend vigilantes to deal with “worrying incidents” and that they would never attempt to interfere in the internal distribution of video signals. SHBL were asked about this 6 months ago but failed to provide any reply.

Of course there is still no explanation for why we need vigilante assistance on Friday and Saturday nights from 6PM until 6AM, hopefully whatever the threat they deal with operates on the same timetable as the board’s paranoia.

Facade Project

With the assurances that the existing Joltec covering is effective and can be over-painted this requirement is not the overriding priority. The first requirement is the windows. They have to be made watertight and we need proper specifications for future replacements. In dealing with them we have to tackle the metal trims and cills at the top and bottom of the windows many of which are rusting and, incidentally, allow ‘cold- bridging’ that encourages damp in the flats.
