Thx Paul for your informative reply.
I guessed as much.
personally though, It just worries me that there appears to be no accountablility and transparency with little recourse for leaseholders to protect themselves from exploitation.
Ive lived in a small private block before and even then couldnt convince leaseholders to pool resources together to contest with our freeholder! However that involved minor disputes like block pest control etc.
Dealing with a gargantuan like Camden, who can annually charge thousands of £ is very intimidating to me and Id be happy to spend a few bob for some sort of protection.
I really hope my fears are unfounded but just spunding them out given the nature of some of these disvussions.
