What is Right to Manage?

Right to Manage Overview

As a leaseholder in a multi-unit property, you pay into a fund for building maintenance but have no say in how those funds are used or other management decisions. The freeholder controls these functions, which may lead to issues like poor repairs, lack of communication on financials, or other areas of dissatisfaction—even if the freeholder is satisfactory, leaseholders may want more input.

Fortunately, leaseholders have options. Through the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002, leaseholders comprising at least 50% of the building’s units can establish a Right to Manage company to gain control of management responsibilities without the freeholder’s agreement. A Right to Manage company requires directors to oversee decision-making on behalf of participating leaseholders.

This transfer of control also means assuming responsibilities like repairs, maintenance, capital projects, financial reporting, tenant issues, insurance, health and safety compliance, and meetings. While a significant undertaking, contracting with an experienced property management company can perform most duties, relieving the company’s directors of day-to-day operations.

It’s important to note exemptions, like buildings with housing authority tenants. Each building must independently meet Right to Manage requirements if part of a larger development.

Our company would be pleased to guide you through the Right to Manage process so your property has functional, participatory management that enhances unit values for all homeowners. Please contact us if you would like to move forward with establishing control through this option.
