The Court of Appeal has reversed an earlier decision by the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) regarding a Right to Manage (RTM) company's efforts to acquire the right to manage more than one self-contained building.

In the case of Triplerose Ltd v Ninety Broomfield Road, it was decided that the original ruling was flawed as the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 had been misinterpreted.

The Court of Appeal said ruling that there did not need to be one RTM company for every block went against the wording of the law and undermined its purpose.

However, it added that the management of all the blocks could be delegated to a single RTM company or a third party manager in instances where managing multiple blocks on the same estate together might be more practical.
