Regal Building, North Kensington, London.
We are receiving an increased number of applications, where estates have previously endeavoured, but failed to obtain Right to Manage.
In May 2012, a group of leaseholder’s of the Regal Building, Kilburn formed a RTM company with the intention of exercising RTM, and to acquire the management of the development comprising of 37 flats. Despite their best efforts the landlord objected to their claim, by issuing a counter-notice in September 2012.
Following discussions and on the recommendation of the proposed managing agent, the RTMF were appointed in October 2013. After reviewing all documentation and correcting technical points of objection, the RTMF served a notice of claim in November 2013, on behalf of a majority of leaseholders. Much to leaseholder’s delight no counter-notice was received by the specified date, therefore the management of the building will be acquired on 24 April 2014.
