I own a leasehold flat in a purpose built block. We do not pay any sort of service charge, but no work is ever done. Some of the communal lights, both internally & externally, are not working and it is pitch black outside the flats. The present freeholders are refusing to do any work to rectify this, although the previous freeholder did (and charged us seperately) Are they responsible for this work, as I would think this was a health & safety issue. We have recently had a letter saying that the freeholders have started carrying out checks to the electrics & wiring to establish if any of the circuits or equipment is defective. Surely if lights arent working then they are defective? Any help would be appreciated.
