I recently viewed a flat that looked pretty good, and it turns out that the occupiers voted to kick out the management company a few years ago. As a result, the service charge is quite decent for the size of the flat. Is there any sort of consensus on whether self-managed blocks of flats are good or bad? Or is it impossible to tell until you're living there?
