Qualifying leaseholders can use the right to manage for any reason – they don’t have to prove the building has been badly managed.
Right to Manage gives the leaseholders the statutory right to take over the management of the apartment block or building from the landlord. This means the leaseholders will own the freehold as a collective group, known as a collective enfranchisement.
If you have recently obtained the Right to Manage, we would recommend you seek legal advice.
A good property law solicitor will be able to outline your responsibilities and offer you practical advice. Equally the Lease Advisory Service offers some good initial advice on this matter.
