I live in a leasehold house on an estate comprising both houses and flats. Can we exercise the right to manage (RTM)?

The right to manage applies to flats only and not houses.

If your estate comprises houses and flats, as the law currently stands, the right to manage applies to each individual building with flats.

There have been proposals to change the law so that the right to manage applies to houses as well as flats. These proposals have not become law yet.

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