Time limit to have meeting

Do you mean the Articles of Association?

Is that really what they say?

Isn't the director also a shareholder?

Can't you find someone with some knowledge to look at these things and help you find a way through?

Yes. The Articles. They state only shareholders and their representatives may receive notices. They specify that no other person is entitled. The directors are shareholders but the Articles read as if only a person in the role of the latter is eligible.

Someone is getting very confused.

If Fred, who is a director and a shareholder, has been served, then Fred the shareholder has been served. There is no point to be made here.

I eventually instructed a solicitor to oversee the process but the directors ignored him claiming he had made a mistake (one of the directors is a lawyer). I feel as if I am banging my head against a brick wall. I have threatened to withhold my service charges if they continue to be obstructive. Their response is that they would no longer recognise me as a lessee and as a shareholder before taking me to court to recover any monies owed. It was only an empty threat to withhold but can they legally strike me off the register of shareholders? I have looked at the small print and it does say that only a lessee can be a shareholder.

There may somewhere be a mechanism for a compulsory transfer.

You should consult that solicitor.

Sadly, leasehold management generally ends up in the hands of several people who are usually not qualified. As Attis says, the answers to these question will lie in the documents to which we have no access.

Is a freehold company a quasi-partnership?

Almost certainly not.

Why do you ask? Have you been looking at cases like Ebrahimi v Westbourne Gallery and O'Neill v Philips?
