Right to Manage | RTM | Block Management
Eviction and Tenant Advice, know your rights, Call 0845 888 6566
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 and 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.

* Terms & Conditions
Prior to commencement of any 'Act Now, Pay Later Eviction Service' the landlord must sign up to a future property management agreement with our associated letting agency for a minimum term.
Once the eviction process has been successfully completed our associated property management company will begin the re let procedure of the property on behalf of the landlord. This will include full reference checks, rent guarantee insurance polices and the full management of the property. A fee for this service will apply. The cost for the eviction service will then be deferred over the next three months, payable from the new rental income.
All details and relevant agreements must be read and signed by the landlord prior to any commencement of eviction and letting services.
