If Rogue Freeholders commit criminal acts they should be arrested and charged. This would make them think twice about breaching peoples leases, extortion, invalid insurance or bordereaux insurance rip offs. Also issuing false (fraud) invoices and threatening people if they question anything or stand up to them.
Criminal and fraudulent acts that are committed with the knowledge that they will be protected if found out and exposed.
Currently it is evident that these people can do as they choose and are protected – Councils/Police/LVT etc etc… the bigger the Landlord the more protection they have.
Why does this idea matter?
Because there are too many leasehold properties in the UK that are controlled by these people who are no more than crooks in suits. Apparently the problem is rife but no-one in authority is doing anything about it.
Many Freeholders and Landlords act within the Law and there is no problem.
But for those who act outside the Law and cause problems for their tenants/leaseholders they need to be dealt with in the same unemotional way in which they operate.
