Flat Management Company Formation

Flat management companies are commonly used to store the freehold interest in a property and to provide facilities to the residents in the communal parts of the building.
The residents themselves usually act as the company directors and shareholders. It is not normally necessary for every person to be a director although each will normally hold one share.

Legal Requirements

When forming a flat management company with a share capital you will need to appoint a minimum of one director and one subscriber holding at least one share in the company.


What is the capital of a flat management company?

Typically, a property divided into 8 flats will have a capital of £8 divided into 8 shares of £1 each. Each flat owner will own a share in the company. As shareholders, the flat owners have their say in running the limited company.

What about Memorandum and Articles of Association?

The Memorandum and Articles of Association are based on Companies Act 2006, as for a private limited company but it will include specific clauses tailored for a flat management company. For example, the Articles of Association will usually say that when a flat owner sells his flat his share must be transferred to the new owner.

What does the company actually do?

A flat management company is commonly used to hold the freehold of a property. The property may be divided into various dwellings or flats.
The company is often used for collecting a central pool of cash for carrying out repairs and maintenance to common parts of the property.

What are the requirements of a flat management company formation?

The requirements are the same as for a limited company with share capital:
A minimum of one director and a minimum of one member
The registered office address must be in the country of incorporation

What are the annual costs of maintaining the company on the Register?

It should be particularly noted that the directors of a flat management company commonly overlook the annual compliance requirements laid down by Companies House with the result that the company gets struck off the Register. The property and any other assets owned by the company are frozen and go to the bona vacantia department.
