The Federation of Private Residents’ Associations are a not-for-profit lease advice, support and lobbying organisation for private residential leaseholders, tenants’ and residents’ associations, Residential Management Companies and Flat Management Companies.
We are the national voice of residents’ associations and are frequently consulted by government. Our leasehold advisory services are free to members, who pay an annual subscription fee.
The Federation of Private Residents’ Associations (FPRA) is an independent organisation. It does not endorse or recommend any products, service providers or companies.
The FPRA is able to offer its members specialist legal, insurance, management and building guidance. We represent and understand the interests of leaseholders seeking to set up a tenants’ association, existing tenants associations (recognised or not) and resident management companies.
We publish a quarterly newsletter for members, as well as information guides and booklets, and keep members informed about current issues and events affecting leaseholders.

FPRA WELCOMES LAW COMMISSION REVIEW OF COMMONHOLD FAILURE
15th December 2017
FPRA Chairman Bob Smytherman welcomed the Law Commission announcement that in their forthcoming programme of Law Reform, acknowledged that commonhold, has failed and that they will consider what reforms are necessary to the law to enable it to operate successfully. FPRA has consistently pointed out to Government that the requirement under existing law, that every single leaseholder should agree to the conversion is in practice impossible to satisfy. In other situations, for example an enfranchisement where the leaseholders buy the freehold so as to manage the block of flats themselves, only a majority of leaseholders need to participateRead more >>
