Why join us?
The FPRA offers support and advice in order to help residents’ in blocks of flats deal with the everyday issues they face.
Practical and legal advice is available to our members.
The FPRA’s legal adviser, will review each case on its own merits, a process which includes scrutinising individual leases and the application of statute and case law. The advice will be as detailed and in depth as necessary to address the issue and answer the question. Whilst we cannot act for members, we will advise on possible tactics and strategies and if and when it is advisable to instruct a solicitor.
Our subject matter experts are also on hand to offer practical advice on the complexities of running a residential management company, disputes between freeholder and leaseholder, problems between individual leaseholders, forming a residents’ association for collective action and in other areas such as property management and structural matters.
