Management companies

The term "management company" can be confusing as it is used to describe different entities in different situations.  It can refer to a professional maintenance company or to a residents company responsible for organising maintenance charges.  There can also be several management companies involved in the management of a property.

In certain cases, you may be required to become a member of a management company or even a director or secretary.

Your obligations as a director and the regulations for the day to day running of the company are set out in a legal document called the articles of association.  You should ask to see a copy of these before agreeing to become a director.
