Right to manage (RTM)
The Government introduced the Right to Manage (RTM) legislation, set out in The Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 to give leaseholders a right to choose how their property was managed. The legislation gives leaseholders the right to take the Block Management away from Freeholders; appoint their own managing agent and take control of service charges and how they are spent. We believe in many situations that we are able to reduce or stabilise running costs whilst improving services and building on reserve funds for the future. If you are unhappy with the way your property is managed and would like to do something about it we have the expertise to take you through the process. If you would like to discuss the feasibility of taking control of the future of your apartment block then please email us on RTM@fhp.co.uk
Our development experience with residential apartments enables us to provide advice on a variety of issues, including management company & lease structures, to minimise future liabilities.
We create a clear and self explanatory service framework to assist with both plot sales and onward letting, helping to maximise immediate and future returns on the development.
We are also employed by a number of resident’s management companies (RTMs) that we feel is testament to the quality and value of service we provide.
Having advised the long leasehold apartment owners of The Arena on the freehold purchase of the property, FHP were instructed to review and place the buildings insurance cover on the property. Using our established network of insurance brokers and advisors we established the property was under-insured. Despite increasing the cover by £2m to £20m, we still managed to obtain a substantial saving to our clients of £18,735 on the overall premium. This significant saving enabled the new freeholder to demonstrate immediate reductions in service charge costs to the remaining leaseholders.
