In November it was relatively quiet, with many people focussed on the LVT deadline for responses on 6th December.
Tenant Management Organisations – what’s your experience?
A TMO is a means by which council or housing association tenants and leaseholders can collectively take on responsibility for managing the homes they live in.
Alan Matthews asks:
“Can any leaseholders share their experience of living on a Camden estate managed by a Tenant Management Organisation? The Camden website says there are six estates managed by TMO’s. Do residents think these organisations offer better value for money or a better quality of service than being serviced directly by the council?”
Can you help Matthew and others by sharing your experience? To reply please go to https://www.leaseholdersforum.org.uk/discussion-board/ [editor’s note: old Discussion Board posts were not migrated when we changed sites in 2015]
