Adding to Alastair’s thoughts.
After a lot of wasted time, we are at least somewhere nearer a sensible amount but despite reassurances at the meeting (not minuted) they have not presented the receipts for the actual costs incurred. I agree that we should stick to that request and pay for the costs incurred.
There are anomalies in the figures and the way they are presented (good to see that we have some accountants amongst us).
A couple of examples:
– the management fee for the second period (12 months) is £3,355 when for the first period (18 months) it was £1,000.
– there is no detail behind the electrical repair charge of £3,661 in 2021 and I don’t recall any work taking place. They appear to be trying to use it again in the build up to the £371 ‘balance brought forward’ figure in the Request for Payment.
