December 15, 2022

The Right To Manage: A guide to the 2002 Act and common mistakes to avoid or exploit

Our speakers Stuart Armstrong and Millie Rai explore the topic of “The Right To Manage”. Many leaseholders are interested in acquiring the right to manage their blocks of flats. By the same token, many landlords are equally keen to prevent this happening. In this webinar Stuart and Millie will examine key issues and concepts under the 2002 Act, explore various complications which may arise in practice and identify how potential pitfalls can be avoided or exploited.

Many leaseholders are interested in acquiring the right to manage their blocks of flats. By the same token, many landlords are equally keen to prevent this happening. In this webinar Stuart and Millie will examine key issues and concepts under the 2002 Act, explore various complications which may arise in practice and identify how potential pitfalls can be avoided or exploited.

The focus of this webinar will be on whether the right to manage can be acquired in any given case and, if so, the procedure to be adopted.
