We own a top flat in Kentish Town, with the lower flat a council tennant.
We recently received an estimated Major Works Bill of around £4000, with the only description being “Better Homes External – Communal Repairs and Decorations”
What on earth are they talking about? There is no other description, estimates, tenders, just a whopping bill. I thought the council had to provide 2 estimates, a description and enter into a consultation with the tenants?
I find the consultation process spectacularly inept at the moment – this could just be the consultation; my personal advice is to call the number on the letter and then ask for an email address to write in to – that way you can ask the questions you need and, just as importantly, have the answers in writing just in case they give you incorrect advice!
