Right To Manage (RTM) specialist
You may well have the right to manage your apartment block.
“These rights allow qualifying owners of long-leasehold apartments to run their own block management. Things need to be organised. There is a procedure. There will be challenges. You need an expert on your side.
As Chartered Surveyors who specialise in Right To Manage our advice is comprehensive. Our holistic approach allows us to advise on the law and, as specialist block management agents, on the practicalities of apartment block management too. We talk your language. It’s what we do.
If you need advice and an expert to take you through the process, please contact me. 01271 386 306″
Take control. Your leaseholders can manage your building.
The right exists to take over the management of your block of apartments under the Leasehold and Commonhold Reform Act 2002. If the qualifying criteria is fulfilled and there is support of over 50% of the leaseholders there is every chance that you can take over the management of your block.
Do we qualify? An indicative insight.
A minimum of 50 per cent of the leaseholders in a block need to support the Right to Manage.
These are the qualifying criteria:
- it must be a self-contained building (or part)
- two or more of the flats must be held by qualifying tenants – ie someone who holds a flat under a long lease of at least 21 years
- the number of flats owned by qualifying tenants cannot be not less than two-thirds of the total in the building
- the participating tenants must be from not less than 50 per cent of the total number of flats when the Claim Notice is actually served
- not more than 25 per cent of the building can be non-residential/commercial uses
- there could be other unique criteria to be considered
Where? In theory anywhere in England and Wales.
We are always happy to discuss your own Right To Manage situation wherever you are in England and Wales. Please feel free to call us 01271 386 306
