Announcing consultation on the draft text of the new Modular Management Agreement for tenant management organisations (TMOs), Sir George said: 'The Right to Manage comes into effect from 1 April. I want to make sure that tenants have available to them the best possible management agreement as the basis for taking over the management of their homes.'
The Right to Manage will, from 1 April, allow properly- constituted tenants' organisations to take over the management of a range of housing management functions currently managed by local authorities, providing that prescribed procedures are followed and providing that they secure a mandate from other tenants.
The new TMO Modular Management Agreement will be the form of agreement approved for use under the Right to Manage. An outline of the Agreement was issued for comment in August 1993. This second round of consultation is on the full draft.
