Dear Madam / Sir,
Q. I own 25% of my flat. I pay rent to the landlady / landlord for the remaining 75% of the flat. I still have to pay the full amount for repairs and factor fees. Is this legal ?
A. At the outset, I would like you to ascertain and clarify whether prevailing housing rules and regulations in the United Kingdom permit partial ownership of an apartment / tenement. If they do, you remain liable to pay repairs for the 25% ownership of the flat. The landlord / landlady of the flat remains liable to pay for the remaining 75% ownership of the flat since they are receiving the rent for the same from you. Your liability remains limited to paying them the rent for the 75% portion occupied by you.
