MTVH have increased the costs leaseholders pay for cyclical works with almost no explanation. If you’re an MTVH leaseholder please complain

Thank you for your letter of 5th September where you say you will use Axis instead of Greyline for the cyclical works as Greyline have now increased their costs.
I understand this will mean increased costs for me. Can you please provide me the revised quotes from Greyline, Axis and The AD Construction Group
Can you please also explain why you chose Axis to fulfil the works. In the letter you sent me on 22nd April 2022 they were the highest cost contractor.
I look forward to hearing from you
This matter was raised at the meeting with the Leasehold Advisory Service. They said “Leaseholders don’t have the legal right to request new quotes in this situation. But we should put in a formal complaint to insist the landlords explain their reasoning in greater detail”. I’ve still put a request for new quotes in the standard letter as there’s no harm in asking, even if it’s not a legal right.
We’ve forced MTVH to implement transparent service charges as a result of our campaigns. We can succeed here too.
