Received a claim notice?

Often, the first a landlord will know of a possible claim for the right to manage is when that landlord receives a claim notice.

And the clock has already started ticking.

Strict time scales apply to the process, so it’s important any landlord who receives a claim notice takes decisive action and gets some expert advice.

If a landlord fails to respond, or respond within the time scales set down, then the legislation allows the RTM company to acquire the right to manage.

As the right to manage is not based on any fault, but instead requires the qualifying criteria to be met and the correct processes followed, the arguments about whether the right to manage can be acquired are generally very technical. Expertise is a must. And our lawyers at PM Legal are the experts you need.

The legislation allows a landlord to recover its reasonable costs from the RTM company.
