On a recent wet Sunday morning I took a walk around Thanet Court in the rain. I prefer to take walks on sunny days but when it is raining, it is easier to locate and record the damage being caused by leaking gutters and downpipes. I found 7 leaking hoppers, gullies and gutters 4 of which are actively causing damage to the buildings. All of these 7 leaks result from the lack of proper maintenance and an organized pro-active maintenance program by the HHGE Directors.
If you are a flat owner of one of the HHGE Flats you are paying 3 X for the failure of the HHGE Directors to properly organize a regular maintenance program to deal with water leaks from gutters, hoppers, downpipes and gullys.
- You are paying the salaries of 3 full time employees of Hanger Hill Garden Estate Ltd who are not doing their jobs – via the annual service charge .
- You are paying an increased service charge for the extra repairs resulting from the lack of a proper maintenance program.
- You are paying personally for any damage caused by damp and condensation to your own flat.
