Right to Manage | RTM | Block Management

Are your service charges too high?
Unhappy with your current managing agent?
Are you constantly chasing your agent to do repairs and maintenance?

If you are a leaseholder in an apartment and are frustrated or concerned about the current management of your block, the law empowers you and your fellow residents to take full control of the management of your block from the current Freeholder or managing agents, by instigating the Right to Manage (RTM) Process.

We can save you money with reduced service charges & manage your block better, so there are fewer problems with your block and facilitate faster and better problem resolution and gradual or immediate block upgrade as required.

One of the key features and successes of the Right to Manage brought in by the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002, is that it is not necessary for you or your fellow lessees to prove any fault on the part of the current management in order to take control over your block. In simple terms, you as a lessee have an absolute right to decide who should manage your block and care for your home.

As a general overview there are three key requirements that need to be fulfilled in order for the Right to Manage procedure to be commenced:

  • At least 50% of the flat owners need to be in agreement.
  • At least 75% of the block must be residential.
  • At least two thirds of the residential units must be let on long leases (at least 21 years).

If you are a leaseholder & feel that your service charges are too high, or are unhappy with your current managing agent, or even feel that you are constantly chasing your agent to do repairs and maintenance, we can assist you in the Right to Manage process from start to finish.
