Tenants Associations – increased rights


The Tenants’ Associations (Provisions Relating to Recognition and Provision of Information) (England) Regulations 2018have just been announced.

Recognised Tenants’ Associations have been given new powers to be able to obtain information about leaseholders in their block (if they have consented).

Various requirements have now been placed on Landlords/ agents to acknowledge and respond to any request for this information in a proper manner. Consequences of non-compliance are yet to be tested, but Landlords and agents could find themselves on the wrong side of an application to the First-tier Tribunal.
