Modern flats

The Law Commission is proposing making it easier for leaseholders to acquire the right to manage (RTM) properties so that they can take control of the day-to-day management of their building. The announcement marks the beginning of a three-month consultation on RTM.

Under current legislation, RTM gives leaseholders the right to take over responsibility for the service, repair, maintenance and insurance of a property from their landlord. It is a no-fault right, which means that leaseholders can acquire RTM without having to prove mismanagement by their landlord.
