Triplerose Ltd v Ninety BroomField Road RTM Co Ltd; Freehold Managers (Nominees) Ltd v Garner Court RTM Co Ltd; Proxima GR properties ltd v Holybrook RTM Co Ltd

Landlord and tenant – Premises. The issue on the appeal was whether a right to manage (RTM) company could acquire the management of more than one set of premises, as defined in s 72 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that references in s 72 of the Act to 'premises' were to a single, self-contained building or part of the building, and that, likewise, references to 'the premises' or 'premises' or 'any premises' in ss 73, 74, 78 and 79 and other provisions of the Act were references to a single, self-contained building or part of the building. Accordingly, it was not open to an RTM company to acquire the right to manage more than one self-contained building or part of a building.
