Who Can Join?
Membership is open to any residents’ association (whether recognised or not), flat management company, resident management company of a block of flats or other leasehold properties. FPRA membership means joining a community of associations actively interested in the management and well-being of their block of flats, and the wider political and legal issues affecting all leaseholders.
Reasons to join the FPRA
The FPRA offers support and a practical service to help tenants in blocks of flats deal with the everyday issues they face. These include the complexities of running a residential management company, disputes between freeholder and leaseholder, problems between individual leaseholders, and forming a residents’ association for collective action.
Free Legal and other Advice
Far more comprehensive than a telephone advice line, the FPRA’s legal adviser or one of its volunteer panel of experts, looks at 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 answer the query. We cannot act for members, but will advise on when and if they should instruct a solicitor, and possible strategies and tactics.
Through its pool of expertise, the FPRA is usually able to offer advice in other areas, such as property management and structural matters.
The free quarterly newsletter keeps members up to date with current issues of interest to leaseholders and residential management companies, including legal updates.
Members’ Area of Website
The Members’ Area is a valuable information and advice resource, encouraging the swapping of information, comment and experience between members. It has a library of Newsletters, questions and answers, advice guides and publications list, and forms to download.
