The Right To Manage aims to provide flat owners with the opportunity to collectively control service charges and the standards of service received.
If your flat meets the following criteria you have a statutory right to control the management of your block:
- The premises consist of a self-contained building or part of a building
- Part of a building is self-contained if it has vertical division, could be redeveloped independently and has, or could have, its own services
- Your building must include at least two flats
- At least two thirds of tenants (flat owners) must qualify
- To qualify, the original lease must be for more than 21 years
- There is no limit to the number of flats owned by one person
- Any commercial / non-residential content must be no more than 25% of the total floor area
- No past or present residence is needed
