LBA CALLS FOR PROPER FUNDING OF TENANTS' RIGHT TO MANAGE

The government needs to make more money available if it is needed to fund councils' role in overseeing tenant management organisations, the London Boroughs Association has said.

Responding to the government's consultation on the right to manage, which was launched last month, the LBA said it agreed tenant ballots to form management organisations should be decided by a majority, but that there should also be a minimum threshold set of eligible residents who actually voted.

This would ensure there is a genuine local interest in management before costly development work was undertaken, the LBA said.

Further thought is also needed to differentiate between 'tenants', which include long lessees, and 'secure tenants', which do not, in the revised draft regulations and guidance circular on right to manage, the association said.
