SURBITON COURT FLATS 1-69 HANDBOOK


Introduction


Surbiton Court Flats 1-69 is managed by a Board of Directors, comprised of Members and elected by Members, not by an outside managing agent. Everyone who owns a flat in Surbiton Court is automatically a Member of SCRA Ltd. Members are entitled to attend and vote at the Annual General Meeting. Members who are in arrears with their maintenance are not entitled to vote at the AGM until their debt is cleared. A flat owned by two, or more, people is entitled to one vote, that is, one vote per flat.

The Board is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the buildings (cleaning, gardening, drains, communal lighting, etc.), the block insurance, and the day-to-day running of Surbiton Court. The Board follows a pro-active schedule of preventative maintenance, which involves prioritising work on a rolling programme basis. The Board meets approximately once a month and a summary of meetings is posted on the Blog.

The purpose of this Handbook is to provide an accessible guide to living in Surbiton Court, based on the Terms of the Lease. All residents, whether owners or sub-tenants, are legally bound to comply with the Terms of the Lease: by buying, or renting, a flat in Surbiton Court you legally agree to comply with these terms.

Some of the information contained in the Handbook, for example maintenance charges, applies only to owners, however all residents are advised to familiarise themselves with the Handbook.

If you have any queries, or would like a hard copy of the Handbook, please email chairman@surbitoncourt.com.
