Right to Manage Claims
If you receive a Right to manage request, Monarch Solicitors can advise you on what steps you will need to take.
Your consent, as landlord, is not required, and neither is a court order.
Tenants do not need to prove that you have been mismanaging the property.
Your tenants may be able to change the management of your building if they are unhappy with the way you are running it, and they live in a leasehold flat.
It is also possible for you to offer to sell the Right to manage the freehold to your tenants.

There are several costs which may be associated with a claim for the Right to Manage a block of flats.
These can include:
- Your solicitor’s legal fees
- Your legal fees for dealing with the initial notice
- Fees for the managing agent (where applicable)
- Accountant fees
- First-Tier Property Tribunal [previously known as the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal or LVT] fees, if applicable
The exact amount of these fees will vary depending on the size of the building, how many tenants are involved in the right to manage. However, you should be entitled to claim these fee
Unfortunately, there are no hard and fast answers to this one. If everything runs smoothly, then it could take as little as four months for your tenants to gain the right to manage. When the RTM company is established, your tenants must then allow 14 days to tell the tenants who have chosen not to be involved about the creation of the company and give them a chance to get involved too. After this has been done, your tenants can serve notice on you. You will have to be given 28 days to respond to the notice and issue a counter-notice if you want to. The law says that after this 28-day period has finished, your tenants must wait a further 3 months to take over the right to manage.
