RTM company registration in England, Wales, Scotland and North of Ireland

If you have concerns about the management of your block of flats or apartment block, and you are looking into taking control of the management of the building yourself, then registering an RTM company is a solution that gives you the legal right to assume control of that management and maintenance from a landlord who, for whatever reason, isn't managing the building as the residents wish.

It might be that the residents feel they can source contractors and maintenance for a lower cost than the landlord has, it may be that the building isn't being maintained well, or that communal areas within the building aren't being kept clean and tidy, which the manager of the building is responsible for. Coddan have an expert RTM company formation team available online to answer questions, and to manage the information gathering and registration of your right to manage company in England, Scotland, Wales and North of Ireland, if you decide that it is the right option for your home, wherever you are based.

It only applies to buildings which have two or more flats or apartments, and only for certain leaseholders, so you need to be sure that you qualify before seeking to establish an RTM company, and there are a number of important factors that need to be covered, which can be complicated. Seeking professional advice from qualified legal advisers is recommended, as this ensures that all aspects of the agreement are covered, all residents are included in the decisions made and given the option of joining the newly incorporated RTM company, that the landlord provides all the relevant information from insurance to pre-existing contracts, and that the ongoing management of the building is correctly carried out.

If you are looking to set-up an RTM company online in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, then Coddan's team of companies formation advisers are available to guide you through this RTM company incorporation process. No matter where you are based, our expert team will be able to answer any questions you may have about beginning the RTM company registration process, what information you need to provide, the costs of registering an RTM company, and how to decide who holds what responsibilities within the right to manage company, and whether to nominate a resident as overall manager or outsource the role to a professional management company.

Brief guide to starting as an RTM company start-up

Guide to Starting as an RTM Company

The decision to create a right to manage company (this may sometimes be referred to as a RTM company) is one that can be taken by a group of leaseholders, and this type of organisation can be set up specifically to handle the management of a group of apartments or flats in a residential building. There are a number of qualifying criteria that need to be met, and the experienced specialists at Coddan can provide invaluable advice about not only the initial requirements, but also the ongoing rules and regulations that need to be adhered to.

In the event that the rules are followed in a strict and diligent manner, there will be no possible legal challenge to the transfer of management responsibilities to a group of leaseholders.

In order to form an RTM company limited by guarantee across the United Kingdom, the most basic qualifying rule is that the residential complex needs to be self-contained with at least two flats. In the event that the construction is not self-contained, there must be the ability for it to be re-developed independently. Each individual tenant needs to have originally been offered a lease term of more than 21 years, and the complex or building needs at least two thirds of the tenants to fulfil this personal criteria. If there is some kind of commercial presence in the development, it must not exceed 25% of the total floor area of the building.

Once a right to manage company has been successfully established, its members can then take over the day-to-day responsibilities for the management of the communal elements of the building.

However, there is a legal requirement for all qualifying leaseholders to be formally invited to join if they have not already done so. There are strict rules in place that relate to the exact name of the company (such as the fact that "RTM" needs to be inserted in the title), and any RTM company will need to have a number of ongoing documents that include minutes of meetings, memorandums and articles of association.

In order to protect the interests of all members, the RTM company needs to operate on a limited by guarantee basis - this means that it is not possible to issue share capital. An RTM company can be registered as a company limited by guarantee with the specific requirements, such RTM company needs to have a very specific memorandum and articles, which suits an RTM companies only, and the name of the company must have an "RTM" abbreviation as well.

If this is something that you are currently considering as a group of qualified leaseholders, the RTM company registration team at Coddan can help you to identify whether or not the legally-binding criteria have all been met. We can be contacted on + 44 (0) 207.935.5171 or +44 (0) 330.808.0089 or via e-mail, and we entire RTM company services portfolio can viewed online at the top of this page.
