For Reference Only In Memory Of Common Sense

and Finally….

The Economics of common sense!

Management have sourced many quotes from many independent contractors as opposed to one main contractor as Management knows that this is the more economic way forward when budgets are of prime importance. 

It is perfectly normal, legal and acceptable that ALL single main contractors farm work out to sub-contractors and most normally load the sub-contractors quotes by anything from 10% - %40 as indeed the example below amply evidences.

We rest our case. £25,000 is the budget.

Case Study

Rules & Regulations re: Section 20 Notices

Management are obliged to follow Head Lease requirements which is to paint & decorate, as well as repair and maintain the Communal areas of Mitre House.

Lessees cannot be required to pay for improvements nor cosmetic additions unless ALL Lessees agree to the additional expenditure over and above the minimum works required to be done.

If Management proceeded with expenditure over and above the minimum outlay required, those Lessees that do not wish to spend more than is minimally required can apply to the LVT for retribution and full reimbursement.

In February 2005 a Communal Sky Dish was proposed and a Section 20 Notice was raised, but one Lessee objected to the expenditure and the project was shelved.

As such, Management's Internals' budget of £25,000 incl. VAT adequately covers all that is required to paint & decorate, and repair and maintain the Communal areas and will not include any improvements or cosmetic items if they cannot be accomplished within the £25,000 budget.
