Right to Manage
Outline of the right for leaseholders of a building containing flats to take over the management of the building.
No. From the date it acquires management responsibilities the RTM company becomes entitled to demand service charges. The landlord will therefore remain responsible to collect the arrears unless the RTM company has otherwise agreed with the landlord to act as the landlord’s agent to collect them on behalf of the landlord.
You are likely to require the services of a solicitor and a managing agent.
