I am a resident of York dale and would agree totally with your comments, are you aware of the following charges are levied by Om on your schedule one.All areas of grass paving around every apartment every bin store on the development whether you use it or not is charged to everyone on the estate, i.e if they repair Holly well paths or put a digital lock on the bin store or clean glass from their bin store you pay for it on schedule 1, The grounds maintenance costing only 14k a year it topped up by your developer for his maintenance by another 13k we all pay on average 27k for landscaping you even pay for apartments grass cutting other than your own, OM also charge you 2.50 per check on cars in your carpark they even charge you to tow them if they feel it necessary. what give them the right to VNC your guests cars and charge you.Are you aware that the developer can recharge anything he likes back through the Management company and they dont want to query any charges because they will lose Shepherd Homes account.Are you aware that the Caretaker is charged the schedule 1 at 25% of his cost and that we pay for his tools mobile phone,OM also charge everyone for a careline this is an emergency call centre owned by them it costs you 500 per year they don\'t tender it out and its a profit making section of OM, is this fair?OM dont get best value they don\'t retender any groundworks or repairs on a yearly basis they just continue without checking the market or even checking invoices.OM also charge each and every one of us 60 a year for them to manage this estate on schedule 1 but guess what if you check your floor area percentage you could be paying as much as 160 per for there very poor service. OM can charge you what they want without consultation the pest control is an example 4 residents backing on to the Leeds city woods complained about Squirl pest as a result we all now pay towards a 4000 a year bill OM state they need to protect themselves form being sued for squirl damage claims, this is rubbish.We all need to email Shepherd Homes contesting these fees and write to our MP Mr G mudie complaining about OM and Shepherds.The OFT is a further avenue to complain Mr D Clutterbuck needs contacting at leeds OFTWe all need to register a dispute with OM on a mass level there 34000 a year fees on schedule 1 alone is a 100% uplift on the cost of maintenance COMPLAIN NOW COMPLAIN HARD WRITE TO YOUR MP, OFT, HOUSING MINISTER AND SHEPHERDS NOW
What agent could do to change your mind?
This Agent is far form efficient the customer services are poor charges are inconstant the Developer has however made some poor and unfair decisions on the communal areas, but the charges from OM are excessive 100% on costs added to defined costs.this agent is very very poor

Have you had any luck with getting rid of OM as I desperately need advice as a freeholder in the same situation
