Around the time of the above identical letter of 11.10.02 'from' Ayesha Salim to the residents, several leaseholders, including Leaseholder A, had approached Nucleus, our local Citizens Advice Bureau for assistance in relation to 'service charge' demands.
In Nov 01, Nucleus had suggested we appoint an arbitrator (as per the clause in the Lease - Clause 2(2)(g)).
(NB: At the 29 Oct 02 pre-trial 'hearing' at the then London Leasehold Valuation Tribunal, the Chair highlighted the arbitration clause to us (i.e. the leaseholders) and told us that, because of this clause in our Lease, the application by 'Steel Services' might actually not proceed to a hearing by the tribunal).
Because Leaseholder A paid the initial £250 (US$440) application fee to appoint an arbitrator, his name featured on the application document. As we subsequently discovered that the arbitrator would be charging £130 (US$230) an hour for this service, we did not proceed with the application.
Following on from this, Leaseholder A received a letter from 'Steel Services' = Ladsky (1), dated 02.01.02, stating, among others:
"The arbitration you have undertaken and which you have now suspended, or cancelled, has caused this company financial loss."
"Your appointment of an arbitrator where no dispute existed  was inappropriate, frivolous and vexatious." (3)
This company has incurred legal fees amounting to £705 [US$1,250]... and surveyor fees of £881 [US$1,560]... (4)
We require payment of the above amounts within fourteen days, failing which we shall take such appropriate steps as may be available to us, including issuing proceedings against you without further notice" (5)
A was not paying the sum demanded,
in a letter dated 28.01.02, Portner
and Jaskel demanded payment
of £1,337 [US$2,360],
"We are instructed to inform you that unless we are in receipt of the aforementioned sum by 4.00 p.m. on 31 January next proceedings shall be issued against you to recover without further notice"
Within less than a month, Leaseholder A received
a claim from Central London County Court
for £1,532 (US$2,700), dated 26.02.02. This claim was
filed by Portner and Jaskel.
(Some 'good' came of it as 'Steel Services'
stated an address in the British
Virgin Islands, which prompted me to
follow this up, leading me to discover that 'Steel
Services' had been "Struck

licence fee". See Owners

This claim against Leaseholder A was
NOT justified - as it was purely and simply 'revenge' by Rachman Ladsky against this very brave, elderly Resident, who 'dared' to stand-up to Ladsky.
told him that it would cost as much as
the sum demanded, if not more, to defend it
so, he might as well pay. (This, to me, smacks of collusion). The poor man did
In relation to this bunch of thugs' method of operating, see Portner and Jaskel for my horrendous and very traumatic experience with it in 2007-08, namely with Jeremy Hershkorn and Ahmet Jaffer:
In relation to the bogus 10.02.06 "notice" sent by Daniel Broughton, Portner (Portner # 1), as I captured in My
Diary under 18 Feb 06, at the time I received the "notice":
As, typically, the so-called 'regulators' of the legal sector turn a 'blind eye and a deaf ear' to malpractice by lawyers, consumers are left with battling it out on their own (Portner # 4 and # 5 ; summary of the outcomes of my complaints).
P.S. Like me, and Leaseholder
H, Leaseholder A received
anonymous phone calls - of course, from Ladsky, the Rachman sociopath / psychopath.
This is confirmed under the 18/02/02-18h53 entry of the 22 July 11 version of the 2002 "crime report"). The Elderly Resident told me that
he ended up asking British Telecom
(BT) to block calls from the number.
