Freeholder Israel Moskovitz and his managing agent Joseph Gurvits, of Y and Y Management, are resisting the right to manage applications of Regent and Elim Courts, in Plymouth.
Regent Court this month won its appeal to the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) earlier this month.
Elim Court’s right to manage application failed at the LVT in January, and the issue is being appealed.
It may not be heard until next year.
The dispute has been reported at length on Carlex.
The following statement has been received by Carlex for publication from Joseph Gurvits, of Y and Y Management.
The Freeholder expresses the following views
1. The legal issue of the appeal is a matter the Freeholder and his legal advisers feel that it has wider implications in many arrears of law. The Freeholder is following his legal advice on this point of law.
2. The Freeholder has been advised by the Property Manager Elena [Andreadis] (who you are free to speak to ) regarding leaseholders who feel intimated and bullied and who do not understand why and what they have signed for in the RTM process.
These silent leaseholders explain that they have to live with these people and the bully boy Directors are pushing and they don’t wish to speak up or fight.
These leaseholders do say that they are very happy with the management currently and do not really see the benefit of RTM. The Freeholder is worried that several leaseholders with vested interests will actually take over only looking after themselves and their own interests.
The Freeholder has no problem in change of Management Company providing it is done of the benefit of all without any underhanded motives. At present this is driven by self-interested people.
