In This Section
If you live in a smaller blocks of flats, particularly if it's self- managed, you or your fellow leaseholders may want to carry out gardening, cleaning or other work to the building yourselves.
The immediate advantage of doing this is that it can keep costs down. But there are important legal, health and safety and insurance issues that need to be considered by the landlord.
Remember, the landlord could be a Residents' Management Company or Right to Manage Company if one is in place.
