What is the procedure for the appointment of a manager?

The leaseholder(s) have to serve a preliminary notice on the landlord stating that this remedy is being sought. If the issues concerned are capable of remedy then the leaseholder(s) have to give the landlord reasonable time to remedy the situation. What constitutes a reasonable time depends on what the issues are.

Once the reasonable time has expired, if the leaseholder(s) are not satisfied that the issues have been remedied, they can then make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) for a manager to be appointed. The leaseholder(s) have to nominate a new manager which could be themselves or a professional manager.

The Tribunal will determine the issues and decide if it is just and convenient in all the circumstances to appoint a new manager.

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