    Why are you asking this again on here and not responding to those members who were kind enough to take their time to respond to your last thread?

    To save anyone wasting their time, the OP ignored all the responses on their other post about this

    If the OP wants to just read one post on that thread to clarify,then I would suggest it is the one posted by GM

    As always very good clear concise advice

    It doesn't matter how many times you ask about this it will not change the answer.

    Either your mum or your brother has to pay this money. Once you own a flat you become responsible for paying for any repairs. This part of being an owner and is completely normal. The council will not pay this for your mother because it is no longer their flat. If your mother did not want to be responsible for this money she should not have bought the flat.
