Frequently Asked Questions
What is the managing agent’s responsibility?
As a rule of thumb, everything that is inside your front door is the owner’s responsibility while the rest is the managing agent’s responsibility. Vickery Holman will deal with everything that is related with the structure of the building and the communal areas including stairwells, lobbies, lifts, communal garages, bin stores, communal patios and gardens, fire alarms, emergency lights, main doors, gates, etc.
For more details, please refer to your lease.
What is a section 20?
A section 20 (S20) is a legal process of consultation to tell you that we intend to carry out work or provide a service whose cost is above the threshold of £250 or £100 per leaseholder respectively. We must serve a S20 on any leaseholder who will be affected by the work or receive the service. The S20 has three phases: the notice of intention, where we include information about what we plan to do, the statement of estimates, that states the quotations received, and the invoicing. It will give you the opportunity to take part in the consultation process, comment on what is being planned and suggest companies to be consulted. The S20 process is set out in law and is mandatory even if there are funds available for the works in a reserve account.
