Right to Manage Services

Exercising the Right to Manage over the building you live in

What are the benefits?

Take over the management functions under your lease. For example:

Service Charge budgets and expenditure.

  • Setting budgets for works that you agree need doing to the building;
  • Or stopping any potentially unnecessary plans for works;
  • Building Insurance costs;
  • Choice of suppliers for cleaning and maintenance;
  • Energy suppliers for communal parts;
  • Any other expenses due under the terms of your lease.

Approvals (albeit with a procedural step required)

  • Licences to Alter;
  • Assignments;
  • Subletting;
  • Pet Licences, and more.

How is it achieved?

The law entitles at least 50% of leasehold owners to form a group and create a special kind of limited company, then force the handover of Management into the control of that company

So provided that you have sufficient support with your neighbours you can make this claim. Due to the fact that your rights can only be challenged on a technicality, it is advisable that you have a specialist solicitor undertake these tasks for you. We have such specialists at the Lease Advice Bureau.

Once the Right to Manage is obtained many leaseholders then decide to appoint their own managing agent to deal with the hard work, while still being in control of the important decisions.

Since there is no "purchase price" for management, doing so is very affordable.

    No, the Right to Manage claim become fixed to the estate, it stays indefinitely. Until either the Right to Manage Company voluntarily gives up this right, it becomes struck off the companies register, or a Tribunal Appoints a new manager, via a different process.

    What if I want to sell during the process?

    A "Participation Agreement" is optional as one of the first steps, a basic version of this agreement can be  included within our services by request at no extra charge.

    This kind of agreement creates obligations for the leaseholders to pay the various sums required on demand.

    It also contains a contingency in the case of sales. The contract can require that the outgoing leaseholder must procure the participation of the incoming leaseholder via an assignment process, so that this does not interfere with the successful completion of the Right to Manage claim.

    When do I need to pay?

    In terms of our services, we ask our clients as a singular group pay a deposit sum on account depending on the size of the block, this ranged from £500 to £800, and the rest of the money will typically be requested upon the Completion of the Right to Manage claim.

    An RTM claim takes approximately six months to complete, the legislation sets out this date from the point your serve your Claim Notice upon your Landlord.
