being a personal matter rather than estate related,
and it clearly states this is not allowed as far as
the lease is concerned.

They have been complicit with the company solicitor
(Mr. J....) in lying to a resident in relation to taking the owner
of the website to court, he stated that a case was
in progress at the AGM 2018 which, after checking
with the Courts, it turned out to be a blatent lie.
October 2018 -The company director (Mrs. D. Clark) and committee
(Mrs. J. Lowes, Mrs. S. T...... and Mr. D. M.....), deliberately lied on a
number of topics during the 2018 AGM with regard to
past events, in particular the meeting with
the accountant which had been held in early 2018.
They also failed to check that the minutes of
meeting itself were accurate before being issued,
unfortunately it was stated that one particular
resident had said something about another which was
completely false, she felt so strongly about being
falsely accused that she later contacted the
committee about the matter.
The lack of courtesy shown by the director and
committee to even acknowledge or respond to a
resident’s emails relating to clarification of
accounting issues, perhaps they feel 'they don't

Since then the full transcript of the first of the
video’s has been published on the website -
Harassment, intimidation and threatening solicitors

the lack of accountability and transparency
especially with regard to expenditure of the
residents service charge.

A number of residents have
been ostracized from all
community activities by the director and committee
because they are unhappy with the residents
concerned who have dared to question their lack of
accountability and suitability to hold the positions
Nepotism shown to family members of the company secretary
when work was being allocated to tradesmen.
Another resident was verbally abused and bullied by
the secretary’s husband in 2017 over what payment
should be charged by his son-in-law for painting her
small fencing at the front of her house.
- Refusal of the director (Mrs. D. Clark) to be transparent and
accountable with regard to the Painting Contract
2015/16 which appears to have been mishandled from
start to finish. When the managing agent at
the time was questioned at the 2017 AGM he stated he
had been instructed by the director not to discuss
the matter – why?.
- Missing money in
the 2012 Account – when this was brought to light at
the 2017 AGM, the director failed to enquire or
follow up with the accountant at the time (Mr. Edward E.........)
regarding an amount of £600 which was unaccounted
for – when questioned by a resident, the accountant
stated it had been a ‘typo error’. Why did Mrs.
