Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002

Section 160: Third parties with management responsibilities

273.Section 160 corrects a defect in the appointment of a manager procedures under Part 2 of the 1987 Act.  By virtue of the amendments made by this section leaseholders will be able to apply to a LVT for the appointment of a new manager where a lease provides for management functions to be carried out by a third party manager rather than the landlord. At present, leaseholders with such leases do not have the same rights as other leaseholders to apply for a new manager where the existing one is failing to manage the building properly. The grounds for appointment are extended by this section to cover acts or omissions by a third party manager as well as a landlord.
