They are just so agressive

Everything the freeholder does is wrong according to the committee and if people in the res association disagree they still object on our behalf to him USING OUR NAMES

Yes most of the things he does to the builing are for his benefit - he's a businessman - dur - but what benefits him often benefits us (e.g. maintaining things which is cheap rather than letting it get to the stage where it needs repairs which would be expensive)
But ooo no - cause he's doing it to spruce the place up to sell the remainding flats that means its wrong and should be objected to - we live by the sea - whatever the reasons for him maintaining the outside of the builing, it helps keep the damp out so who cares WHY he's doing it

Now they are objecting to his application for planning permission to convert part of the building and going door to door trying to enforce their opinions on everyone

A res committee should represent the views of the majority of the residents - rather than using all our names to push forward their own misguided agendas

Things arent put to a vote at meetings. They tell us whats happening and what we should think about it - we (and others) put our hands up and say maybe its not black and white - they tell us we're wrong and carry on as they planned to anyway

So the end result is that if we ever have a real problem that we want to bring to the freeholders attention why should he listen since EVERYTHING is objected to agressively. I think battles should be picked.

Ok rant over

I would send them a letter (and the rest of the residents) or stand up at a meeting and make it clear why you are leaving. Not just leaving quietly.

OR canvass opinions and see who else feels the same, before coming together to form a plan of action against the residents assoc.

It will have more impact. And maybe make a change.

and YANBU if they are not representing the views of the residents and are just deciding amongst themselves.
