Why people choose to create an RTM company: creating an RTM company gives leaseholders the right to manage their apartment block or the building their flat is within, rather than leaving the management of the building to a landlord.
There are many reasons that people might want to create an RTM company, and these reasons may include wanting to better manage the costs of services in the building, to have more say on the maintenance of communal areas within the house, and maintaining the building itself, i.e. keeping the roof in good repair, cleaning the hallways and entrance, keeping the bin areas clean and tidy.
Whatever the reasons for creating and registering an RTM company, the process remains the same. There is certain information - the qualifying leaseholders, the number of tenants and residents who want to be part of the RTM, which of those will be officers, directors and active members of the RTM, the insurance information and current maintenance contracts which may be in place, and much more.
Because there is so much information to gather, and because it involves creating a board of officers who need to communicate and agree on the way that things will be managed before the RTM company is even registered, it can be a complicated and drawn out process.
