Right to Manage Liverpool

Take Back Control of Costs, Increase the Resale Value of Your Liverpool Property

The Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 is legislation provides an opportunity for apartment owners (leaseholders), to manage their own affairs and to make decisions about the management and maintenance of their property, including building insurance, maintenance, improvements, external areas, such as gardens and the overall service charge. This process is called Right to Manage (RTM).

Many service charges are excessive and in some cases the services are sub-standard or not provided at all. If your property is let, then your net income per month is reduced with high, unnecessary fees and whether you are an owner occupier or buy-to-let investor, the resale value of your property will be negatively impacted with high service charges.

On a recent RTM, we reduced the service charge insurance premium from £12,000 per annum to just under £4,000, a saving of £8,000!

The Freeholder's Consent is Not Required For Right to Manage

The freeholder's consent is not required for RTM. There is no requirement to prove mismanagement by the freeholder or the current managing agent to gain the right to manage. Essentially, it means that lessees (via an RTM Company) have control of day-to-day affairs. You do not have to this yourself.
