Virtual Company Secretary Ltd Claimed


We provide company incorporation and outsourced corporate secretarial and accounting solutions to residential properties of all sizes from 2 leaseholders to 2oo+ leaseholders.

We are specialists in freehold companies (companies owning the freehold interest in a property) and Right to Manage (RTM) companies, and the incorporation of Companies Limited by Shares (freehold companies) and Companies Limited by Guarantee (RTM Companies).  The residents usually act as the Company Directors and shareholders. In large properties, it is not normally necessary for every person to be a Director although all residents will normally hold one share.

We can assist with the provision of ongoing support to the residents.  We act as Registered Office for the Company, and also provide Directors’ service addresses so that home addresses are not publicly disclosed and easily searchable on the internet.  We prepare and file financial accounts, prepare and file annual confirmation statements, comply with legal requirements on the sale of a property, arrange to transfer the shares, draft indemnities required, draft Deeds of Covenant and provide Certificates of Compliance for the Land Registry.

We currently act for 1,300 leaseholders in the UK. Our largest freehold collective enfranchisement client is a converted hospital containing 225 apartments.

We cannot stress enough the importance that Directors ensure they are in compliance with the Companies Act, that the correct fillings are made at Companies House and with HMRC, and that all documentation be properly dealt with at the time of a property transfer.
