Below is the process to apply to become an LKP accredited managing agent.
Leasehold Knowledge Partnership Limited, of which Carlex is a part, is a company limited by guarantee (company number: 08999652) that is a registered charity (1162584) with the Charities Commission.
Although LKP members do not need to be members of any trade body, they are expected to comply with the spirit of the professional codes that exist for RICS, ARMA-Q and ARHM (Codes of Management Practice (Private Retirement Housing) (England) Order 2005, Statutory Instrument 2005 No 3307).
The document is not a test with a 100 per cent pass mark, but serves to identify your company’s approach to residential property management.
It is a basic assessment of good governance.
Managing agents who sign up with LKP wish to work with leaseholder managed blocks, either through resident management companies, RTMs or enfranchisement.
The LKP accredited companies vary in size from HML Holdings plc with 55,000 flats under management, to small companies just starting up.
LKP seeks to inform, educate and empower leaseholders. We routinely assist leaseholders, whether living in high-end central London, or retirement sites with social landlords in the North East.
It is to be hoped that the ethos of LKP is clear from the editorial of its website, and that sympathy with it is a reason to seek accreditation.
Its accreditation fees can be paid in the form of a tax efficient charitable donation.
