We help both landlords (both individuals and corporate investors) and tenants deal with the right to manage.

The Right to Manage introduced by the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 offers flat owners a no fault, fairly quick and comparatively inexpensive route (compared to enfranchising the freehold interest) to take control of the management of their block.

They must meet certain qualifying criteria such as needing 50% of the flat owners to act in concert. Unfortunately there are various traps for the unwary.

Tenants making the claim want to avoid losing time and money over such issues and landlords will want to ensure that the right is validly exercised to be sure that they have been relieved of their obligations such as insurance.

Whether you are a landlord or a tenant our team can help you, e.g with regard to:

  • qualification
  • procedure
  • extent of the building and common parts in respect of which management can be obtained
  • uncommitted service charge fund
  • termination of contracts
