I am the leaseholder of a flat. Can I and the other leaseholders exercise the right to manage (RTM)?

The building must meet certain conditions and a minimum number of leaseholders are required to take part.

It will not be possible to exercise RTM if the landlord is a housing authority (such as most local authorities) nor where the resident landlord exemption applies.

If the building qualifies, at the time the Claim Notice is served membership of the RTM company should comprise the qualifying tenants of at least half of the flats in the building.

You are likely to require the services of a solicitor and a managing agent.
