Leaseholders

Leaseholder involvement

Tenants, Residents and Leaseholders Associations (TRLAs)

Recognised tenants' organisations have rights to consultation on decisions that affect them, for example:

  • Changes to management policies
  • Housing conditions
  • Housing services
  • Stock transfer.

 

They may also qualify for a council grant to meet costs, and for practical help.

In order to qualify for recognition the association will need to be able to show that it has:

  • a constitution and officers, at least a chairperson and treasurer
  • meetings, including an annual general meeting
  • accounts
  • membership open to tenants and leaseholders.

 

A benefit for leaseholders is that a recognised association has rights to consultation about service charges, choice of managing agents and other decisions.

Although none of our TRLA’s are legally recognised associations under law, we generally consult with them as if they were legally recognised.
