Maintenance payment

Hello. My understanding is that maintenance payments should be made into site bank account. One owner on site is asking that he receives payment in his hand. I am sure this is illegal. There is no formal receipt and what would happen if he was broken into?
Thanks for any answers in advance,Derek.

Re: Maintenance payment

We can pay cash , but an official site receipt book is filled out and a signed copy is handed over with the spreadsheet entry confirmed.

Re: Maintenance payment

I think what could be more relevant is to also have cash payments witnessed by another resident for the security of the person receiving it.
However, no receipt then no payment.

Re: Maintenance payment

You say one owner on site is demanding cash payment for site fees. Is this owner the site manager/ member of the management board and signatory to the site bank account? If not then don’t pay over cash even in return for a receipt.
Having said that, owners have a responsibility to pay fees into the site account on or before the due date. Our site manager has in the past demanded cash from unscrupulous owners who run up debts and promise to pay into the account but never do.

Re: Maintenance payment

Owners have lost their homes on our site through non payment of fees. You need a tough committee that won't back down .

And so it should be.
When people buy onto a site they accept there are fees to be paid, so why should some be excused from payments leaving everyone else to subsidise those that do not pay.

If people can't afford to pay the fees on their homes then they should sell-up and move.

Agreed. These owners took it to the wire and in the end got peanuts out of their properties after auction.

Re: Maintenance payment

The one asking for cash is not a manager,board member or signatory to bank account. There is no board despite over 8 apartments,no manager and no bank account. Can I refuse to hand over money in this situation without legal proceedings being taken against me. I cannot see how legal action can be taken against me for refusing to partake in illegal activity.
