‘Right to manage’ becomes easier for tenants

Solicitors in London

News article published on: 20th June 2012

Following consultation, the government is moving forward with plans to make it easier for tenant groups to take over the management of their homes.

Revised regulation on the ‘right to manage’ will remove current requirements that tenant groups must produce a feasibility study before balloting residents and that local authorities must send the result of ballots to the communities secretary.

The government has also said that it will produce ‘streamlined, sector-led guidance that provides practical help for tenants in exercising a right to manage.

What right to manage can do for you?

Your property may be poorly managed by the managing agent or freeholder; perhaps works are being carried out which you feel are unnecessary or overly expensive. By exercising your right to manage you can take control of the management of your property.

This is done through a tenants association.

How Osbornes solicitors can help?

If you would like further information on how to begin the ‘right to manage’ process contact Guy or Shilpa who will be happy to provide you with further guidance the requirements you will need to meet in order to exercise this right. We can also help you set up a tenants association if you have not already done so.

Other options you may have thought about which Guy and Shilpa can also assist you with include extending your lease and buying the freehold of your property, commonly called enfranchisement.
