Claim to acquire right
Section 85: Landlords etc. not traceable
154.Section 85 provides that a RTM company may apply to a LVT to acquire the right to manage where no party can be found to serve a claim notice upon. Prior to making such an application, the company must first notify all qualifying tenants of its intention to do so. The LVT may order the company to take further steps to find any of the missing parties, or may make an order providing that the company is entitled to acquire the right to manage. If any of the absent parties is traced prior to the LVT making an order, no further proceedings will be taken regarding the making of the order and the LVT will instead order how the claim should be dealt with.
