    RMC - Refusing to provide access to board/committee minutes

    Hi,

    I am a member of an RMC and they are refusing to distribute minutes of past commitee meetings (attended by the RMC directors), as they probably know some of their decisions were very questionable.

    Can they do that? Am I not entitled to have access to all minutes?

    You should check the Articles of Association of the Company but there is no automatic right of access to directors' minutes. If necessary, members can amend the Articles to allow inspection and they can consider decisions at meetings of members and pass resolutions reversing the decisions.

      Amending the articles requires a special resolution, which means that that there has to be extended notice of the meeting and the meeting notice must contain the exact wording of the resolution to make the change. There has to be a 75% majority vote.

      RMCs are just normal companies, from a legal point of view, and a lot of commercially sensitive information is covered in board meetings of most normal companies. Ordinary shareholders could work for competitors.

      Even RTMs have a right to redact information.

        You have the right to inspect the register of members and minutes of general meetings, however these do not include board minutes.

        See s116 and s358 CA 2006.

        • Restitution for overpaid service charges
          by Lorimer
          I have just had a First Tier Tribunal hearing for a service charge challenge spanning the years 2014-2016. The FTT confirmed what I suspected - that I had overpaid 10K of service charges and that although the FTT is not in a position to order repayment to me, I might consider making a county court claim...

          Hi Lorimer,would love to know the outcome as I have a very similar problem with a persistent leak plus wrongly apportioned and exaggerate Buildings Insurance premiums from a landlord that owns 8 properties in a row, including mine.

          by propertyboy
          Will I have the same statutory right to extend after 2 years like another leaseholder regardless of the fact that the freeholder is the council?

          Does it matter if you are a non-resident landlord? Can you extend your lease after 2 years if you are based overseas?...

          Hi all,

          I do not have any appetite to buy ex-local stock and look to buy period property in London.

          This is personal preference (lots of ex local supply and prefer victorian stock in a period property with 2-3 flats in the block).

          Recently I have been looking at...

          The unspent service charge money including "reserve fund/sinking fund " belongs to the leaseholders. The RMC has to keep the service charge money in separate bank accounts called "client account" for which the bank will issue a letter to acknowledge the "client account"...

          by Libra
          I am wondering what is the correct accounting report for an RMC, that is owned by the leaseholders / freeholders and also owns the freehold.
          Has the Tec/03/11 been superseded? Is the Financial reporting standard 102 section 1A appropriate?
          Is it correct to report that the reserve fund...

          The RMC has to file its own "RMC company accounts" to Companies House and if it has no ground rent income, it will be filing dormant accounts.

          The RMC has responsibility under the lease to collect the service charge money from leaseholders and arrange maintenance of the building...

          Hello Leaseholder 64,
          Thank your for your reply. I didn't think that they are the same issues ...that's why I started another post. I can now see how they can have a common point. To my mind, whether I can report the directors was different to what is the correct account report for a RMC. My apologies....

          Hello...and thank you for listening
          I am wondering if one could report the RMC directors to be unfit - several breaches of Companies Act - blackmailing / coercing the residents / misleading statements regarding the right to acquire the freehold - probably false accounting ( still investigating...
