Right to Manage

Right To Manage (RTM), allows leaseholders to manage all or part of their development. Once complete, the RTM process places all responsibility for the management, maintenance and insurance of the building or development onto the new Right To Manage Company (RTM company) and takes it away from the Freeholder (Landlord) or any existing management company.
