Once we have an understanding of the legalities surrounding your development, we can then advise on the most efficient way to pursue a change of Managing Agent. Sometimes you have the power to effect change easily and sometimes it requires a more intricate process.

If you are part of a tri-partite lease (a lease with three parties: the freeholder, the management company and the leaseholder) then the directors of your Resident’s Management Company (RMC) usually have the power to appoint a new agent. Should this be the case you can propose a change of agents to the current board of Directors of the RMC or become appointed as a Director and implement the change yourself.
