Right to Manage Claim Notice

Landlord and Tenant

Under the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002, long leaseholders of residential buildings can apply to take over the management of the building (subject to certain exceptions).  To have the right to manage, leaseholders must become members of a Right to Manage (RTM) Company.  A claim notice must then be given to the landlord, manager and any other party to the lease.

In the case of Assethold v 15 Yonge Park RTM Company [2011] the claim notice was ruled to be invalid as the address of the RTM Company was incorrect.  This information is a mandatory requirement under the Act and therefore more than just an inaccuracy.
