One less internet friendship (although I have no idea why, as for once, I did not break it off).
A letter from the newly appointed management company for the block informing us that the proposed budget for next year will include a 40% hike in communal charges. Needless to state, most of this is to cover, guess what? The fees of said management company. None of which will go on block maintenance of course, which, unless I have missed something somewhere, is what most, if not all residents want to see. Said management company also seems to think it is their role to call the annual meeting. Er hello, I thought I was a director and that is MY role.
So most of yesterday was spent drafting an agenda for our annual meeting, emailing to and fro with the company adminstrators for our block council of management, and faxing the management company to inform them the directors call the annual meeting. Not some employed agency that hasn’t been confirmed by the council of directors.
We tried out the washing machine again. It still leaked. Shit. Nothing is open today in Gib as it is Saturday. A week’s worth of dirty washing looms.
Increase in management costs plus new washing machine = at least £500.
I do hope this is not an indication of the way this year is going to go.
Oh, and I have a cold sore too. I wonder why?
