LadyBrook Securities Ltd and Rentcharge
There have been lots of threads on here over the years regarding LadyBrook Securities, rent charges and retrospective consent. All seems very dodgy but is apparently legal.
Advice wanted regarding LadyBrook Securities from anyone whose dealt with them and retrospective consent. They are currently delaying my elderly and vulnerable mothers house move by asking we get retrospective consent for alterations made to the property. They have responded and say it will cost us £360. However they haven't been able to tell us what works they think have been done, so it's clearly just a money grabbing practice. They knew she was selling as solicitors contacted them to confirm there was no outstanding rent charge. She had a conservatory built decade's ago, but has had a new roof, doors and windows more recently. Should I declare these as well?
Any response from LadyBrook has been vague and bare minimum without answering our questions. And of course no way to contact them swiftly, further delaying mums move.
Thanks for any advice
