Success for Recognised Tenants’ Associations in the Upper Tribunal!

A Recognised Tenants’ Association (RTA) is one of the few methods by which lessess can obtain extensive rights without being burdened by weighty obligations.

A successful appeal of the case of Rosslyn MansionsTenants’Association v Winstonworth Ltd [2015] UKUT 0011(LC) in the UpperTribunal means the First Tier Tribunal will now need to consider not just the percentage of qualifying tenants who are seeking a certificate of recognition,but the proportions of service charges they pay.

The appeal followed rejection in the First Tier Tribunal of the RTAs application for certificate of recognition.
