residents associations

A residents’ association is formed by a group of people living on an estate or in a block, who come together as an organisation to represent their mutual interests.Usually (although not always) a residents’ association will be formed by tenants or lessees who hold tenancies/leases from the same landlord which include provisions for the payment of variable service charges.

As a residents’ association it is easier to campaign for environmental improvements, repairs, buildings works, facilities or management and maintenance charges.

Lessees have the right to form an association and for that association to be recognised either voluntarily by the landlord or compulsorily through the Rent Assessment Panel.To be most effective a residents’ association should be formally recognised.
