In the wake of the global Covid19 outbreak, Consult Property Management have adapted the way we operate as we take responsible steps to ensure the safety of staff, clients and communities.


Right To Manage (RTM)

What is right to manage?

A right to manage involves discharging the involvement of the freeholder in running the maintenance of the property and taking control by formation of a RTM (Right to Manage) company. The RTM will have the responsibility for the maintenance and legal governance of the property. We understand that leaseholders have a vested interest in the running of their block and estate, the formation of an RTM will allow involvement in decision making collaboratively with other leaseholders.

Why exercise RTM?

In some instances, the freeholder or landlord may not be managing the maintenance obligations satisfactorily allowing a building to fall into disrepair. In additional the landlord may not be managing the service charge account adequately resulting in a sporadic collection of funds. Ultimately landlords do not have the same interests as the leaseholders who wish to maintain and improve the property they live in.
