Hello everyone, just writing to let you know about a right to manage ("RTM") success story at a Central London block, with over 30 flats.
When we were engaged by the leaseholders to help them with their right to manage ("RTM") bid, we found that many flats were being sublet and that we had no contact details for their leaseholders. This was a potential problem because we could not contact all the leaseholders to inform them of the RTM process and invite them to join in. We solved this problem by:
1. Conducting Land Registry searches for the owners; and
2. Serving a notice under Section 82 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 on the freeholder. This notice required the Freeholder to release the names of all the leaseholders in the block within 28 days, which they duly did.
This story shows that even when complications arise, the legislation is there to help leaseholders solve such problems.
