The Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 provides a right for leaseholders to acquire management functions from their landlords by setting up a 'Right to Manage' company. 

The Right to Manage empowers leaseholders who own flats to take responsibility for the management of their block. Therefore RTM is not available to leaseholders of houses.

You don't need Arches' permission to do this or prove mismanagement on their part. You just have to serve us with a formal a formal notice. However, Arches is also entitled to membership of the company.

At least half of the flats in a building must take part, and at least two-thirds of the flats in the building must be owned by long leaseholders (leases of more than 21 years when first granted).

If you are a leaseholder who is thinking about taking up the Right to Manage, give us a call on 0114 228 8100 to discuss this.
