WE WILL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS AND HELP SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS
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.
Membership Fees VAT Registration
25th August 2021
Thanks to your support and loyalty, an evolving online presence and our advertisers, the FPRA have had an excellent 2020/2021 financial year. However, this does now mean we have to register for VAT. Once registered (the registration date is 1st September 2021), we will have to add 20% VAT to your renewals, therefore increasing what you need to pay for your membership fees.
